Specifications of a 140 hp 2.0 L 16-valve DOHC Chrysler 420A
I'm assuming that you're asking how to make the car faster with bolt-on modifications.
1. Buy a cold air intake. Preferrably one that puts the actual filter in the fender well. That will help to bring in cooler air, making the air/fuel mixture more dense= better combustion(more power)
2. Exhaust. I'd start with a cat-back exhaust system. They are usually found pretty cheap on ebay. That will help with finding some higher rpm power, and since it starts after the catalyctic converter, it's legal. You might also look into some equal-length headers.
3. Underdrive pulleys. These help lose weight on the rotating assembly of the engine. That will help your engine rev quicker and get you into the RPMs where you make power.
Those will be the easiest for making bolt-on power. If you were to get deeper into the engine there would be better ways to make power; such as cams, forged pistons, nitrous, turbos, etc.
Once you start making some power, you'll probably also want to look into ways to make sure it's getting put to the ground. I would suggest getting a heavier clutch and a lightened flywheel. The heavier clutch would hold more power and the lighter flywheel would allow the car to rev up faster, allowing you to get into the power quicker.
