If you go aftermarket engine management you can do things like mild cams, bore, stroke etc. I think there is stuff available.
Bolt-on power yeah supercharging has been done relatively sucessfully.

Altho in most cases it's more cost effective, easier, and just better to put an EJ20turbo in your car.

No, the EJ25 is only slightly more powerful than the EJ22. It does have a fair bit more torque. But it's not really worth upgrading from EJ22 to EJ25 - not enough of a difference. Look it up, it's a matter of maybe 10kw I think.

That is why most people go for EJ22 upgrade as its a big difference from EA82. Plus EJ25 is harder to get than EJ22.
