mods for my slk230 r170

Hi guys, Want to get some more power into my stock slk can you suggest some inexpensive modifications for my car in terms of performance. First upgrade I am completing at the moment is I just bought a k & n air filter and waiting for delivery! Thanks

I wouldn't fit a k+n filter the oil gets onto the maf and can cause problems the stock filter will flow more air than your engine can consume
