    No, you don't have many options outside of forced induction. A number of members at fiero.nl have turbocharged the 4.9 to 300hp or so. See what you can find over there.

    There is a Fiero guy adapting an Eaton M90 onto a 4.9 as well that I have been watching for updates to see how it works out. There is a company doing regrind cams for these engines so that could help a bit. I have read that the Allante intake is supposed to be an improvement but not sure how much.
    You could try to get a free flowing exhaust, wont be huge gains but should help a bit.
