Max power out of 2.4

Hey there everyone, my name is Aland (pronounced 'allen') I'm 22 years old and i have a 97 jeep wrangler that my dad passed on to me. I love the heck out of it. I've had so many fun adventures with it and Im ready for upgrades. I want to maximize my power for a 4 cylinder but Im not sure what to do. Im Going to get a "Brute Force" intake soon and I have a 'FlowMaster' exhaust.

Any one have any good tips to get more power for my engine?

Welcome

Dont bother with a cold air kit or the exhaust, it help you'd be just blowin $$$. If you want to keep the engine then try and find a supercharger, if not then look for a I6 or swap in a chevy 350 or a hemi.
