I have heard that 3.7 or even 4.11 Diff gears really bring them to life as well, so long as you are willing to sacrafice a bit of economy if you use the highway a lot.

Typhoon intake, extractors of your choice, off the shelf 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust, get your existing cat modified with 2.5" flanges (I personally wouldn't bother with the expense of a custom system), LSD and shorter diff gears (lotta threads on shorter gears, do a search for some different opinions) then an edit to top it all off.
It'll be a 14second car then, with little to no loss in streetability.

yup, spend $3,500 and you should be well into the 14's. I've only spent $1,500 so i'm still in the 15's. :(

factory cams arnt bad.. and being a dohc over the sohc motors does have advantages... Think nizpro made a set for the NA barra six... although very very pricey... $$$ better spent on induction.. extractors.. exhaust.. edit.. and diff ratioo...
