IF just want it to be a little quicker do the usual mods... Intake, header, exhaust. Plenty of parts available for the D15 motor.

if you really want to wake it up, do a DPFI to MPFI swap, get a full exhaust system, and an intake to fit the DPFI to MPFI swap. should put you in the 130 to 140 range. not to bad for a d15
