95 performance question.

Hi guys, I'm new here, and I'm not much of a motorhead. I'm curious what sort of upgrades I could put on my '95 to get some more power out of it. I understand there isn't a whole lot that's very possible for the 3.0 but I'm preparing to start a project to fix up my first car that's treated me very well over the last 7 years. Any help would be appreciated!

By the way, please don't say swap the engine!

If I WERE to swap it out for a bigger engine from an explorer or another ranger, would there be any major modifications or would it bolt right on? As much as I hate to admit this I lack the skills, tools, and knowledge to really be able to pull this one off.
