Not sure for a model codes, But i can give you some tips on engine tuning. If you want maximum power, your gonna want to change the cat for a De-cat, then a nice smooth flowing exhaust system. Make sure the pipe work is the same size of your going to get buffering from the exhaust gases as they leave one size and enter another size. That's an easy mod, How much are you wanting to spend, coz if you've got a good budget you could go for a B16a2 VTI engine = 160bhp. but its gonna cost you if you want to do that.

de-cat is the best place to start for power, just it wont past a mot with it on so keep the original cat and put it on whenyou need to mot your car.
Quite a cheap area to mod as well, £50 and you can get an extra 4-6bhp form the pipe (with a full exhaust sytem on the car). If you lighten the car you will make the car faster, replacing the standard seats with light seats is good, lighter wheels, bonnet, boot, door cards etc etc etc. Plus it'll help you on petrol too as your not hauling a haevy car around so you should see better MPG too
