A set of early C9, D0 heads with the smaller 75cc chambers would boost compression - or better yet some aftermarket aluminum heads (which would already have the screw-in-studs, valve springs, larger valves and better flow, hardened ex seats, better seals, etc.).
The bump in compression (to around 10.5?) would certainly improve performance - although 10.5 might be a little high for street use/pump gas.
