How many miles are on the engine?? If it's low and it doesn't show any sighs of wear like smoke, loss of power or burning oil if it checks out OK I would leave the internals alone. But if it does burn a little oil and have high miles I would do the basic rebuild of boring it, new bearings, pistons and rings. It does involve taking the engine out and it not the easiest job but not the hardest. Is this engine Fuel injected? I would start with good exhaust, headers and Flowmasters alone would give you 25+ HP Can't do too much in the performance department with fuel injected motors like you can with a carbed engine.
