stickers all over it, each sticker gives you 20 hp , but seriously you probably wont get any better HP without touching the ECU

Horsepower isn't cheap. Places like the Super Six web site is probably where you would need to go. You could check out places like Summit Racing on up grading the pistons and such. Port and polish the heads. Maybe an intake and exhaust after that and or a bigger throttle body. Other than the port and polish that you could, in theory do yourself, you're gonna be spending some serious cash.
