Welcome-
SCT tuner, K&N Drop-in filter, synthetic fluids, and cat back exhaust will help some, but you're not gonna find much more (or get much more power) other than a supercharger kit. I've got the tuner, synth, cat-back, plus a Screamin' Demon coil pack, 8mm plug wires, opened-gap Autolite Platinum plugs, and aFe Stage 2 intake-I picked-up about 17 hp, 34 lb/ft at the crank.
Annnnnnnnnnnd-please create a sig--it will help you (and us) a bunch.

I ran it on the dyno at Carlisle Ford Nats in June--verified gains.
