Default Looking to improve my engine's performance

Hey there,

I was looking for an easy and cheap way to improve my car engine's performance a bit by increasing its horsepower or whatever. Cars in Egypt almost always have low engines because of the expensive customs, and mine is pretty low (1598cc). Anyway, a couple of people suggested a high performance intake (like from K & N) and a good highflow exhaust (flowmaster, etc.). That is a cheap and easy way, and a nice addition that MIGHT be a bit costy is a plug in chip that can change the engine's dynamics.

I'm a novice when it comes to mechanics, and that is why I need help with that. Don't worry, I'm not looking to start speeding again or whatever, I actually always have my seatbelt on and drive 80 - 110 km/h, but it'd be nice to improve the engine's performance since it is possible.

I stumbled upon some but I don't really know which is which or which fits or whatever. I need help!

It's a 2010 Mazda 3 with engine model 1.6 dohc (1,598 cc (97.5 cu in) I4), (105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp)@6000, 145 Nm (107 lbft)@4000), and (CO2 emissions (g/km) 149).

Thank you.
