Maybe you should get an entirely different car. I hear a Nissan Altima with a CVT is comparable.

Get VCM muzzler. Transforms the car, if you add sprint booster to it, for more kick. .

I don't find it under powered at all... you might need to either use in Sport + mode or use the paddle shifters to get the car do be a "bit more proactive"

I did buy ECU unit from "Chip Your Car", have been using it, and i honestly do see the performance Diff.
wondering if another ECU unit from B&B will work in addition to it.

I agree with @Gonzo . And I drive almost exclusively in Sport mode, excepting only when I drive Sport+. (I never drive in Normal or Economy.) I still get 35MPG on the freeway.

290hp isn't enough at 3-6K RPM in this car? For the money, there are few comparable options.
