Default What more can I do to increase HP?

So far my DC3 has had installed -

Airaid cold air intake
Magnaflow cat back exhaust
Mopar BOV
B+S cabin air filter (increases my performance due to allergies)

I'm thinkin that the only thing left (price for performance) is to get a Stage 1 put in. But I really don't want to mess with my warranty. I'll be putting 25K miles per year on it which is why I got the 6/60K extended warranty. Is there anything more I can do to tweak out a few more ponies without putting my warranty in that much jeopardy?
Also, I just read that there's one more silencer in the tube between the intake and the turbo. Is there any documentation on how to get this out and is it difficult?
Oh, and one more thing, when should I take out and clean my cold air intake

Not much else you can do if you want to keep the warranty. However, can try removing your back seats and spare tire. In addition, remove any unnecessray items loaded in the car. Reducing weight can be cheap

The last silencer in the turbo to airbox pipe can not be removed. You have to replace the pipe.

you would be replacing the air raid cai and the rubber hose that goes from the intercooler to the throttle body. look in the vendors section there should be dyno charts and such there

look for AMX (Jim) in the members link.

I bought his Airbox-Turbo pipe and love it!

Adam's kit is a complete kit with very good parts.

I, honestly, like them both, it is up to you (Budget Permits).

My funds only permited jim's kit. I hope I can upgrade it with Adam's kit.

Ian

30 HP? I find that very hard to believe.
