Your car is a 96 and may not be worth the money to dump into it. Remove weight from the car, add a new performance muffler system would be an inexpensive way to add horsepower and speed. You could add a blower but you are looking at a few thousand dollars. I would save your pennies and buy a newer car with more horsepower...

At your vehicles age anything that you do is going to shorten the engines life dramatically right now, if you are going to keep the car then you need to fix its weak spots first, then you can add a turbo, a high flow intake and exhaust systems, better suspension, brakes wheels and tires etc. HTH
