DOHC engines are very receptive to new cams and valve train work, but do require some more tuning savy to have it run right and get the most hp.

depending on ur meaning of "cheap", how much you willing to spend? nitro is cheap for short period of time, turbo is the best way to go, more power comparing to N/A andit cheaper than runnin NA, at the end, you still lookin at 2g+ to get near that 250+hp

I know you don't want to go turbo, but you could try for a relatively small turbo. Generally the smaller the turbo the quicker the spool, albeit with less overall hp gain. Plus turbo spool is a factor of rpm, not speed. so unless you want to try to race your father at less than 3000rpm in first gear, the lag should not be an issue. But for staying N/A, try going cold air, new headers, hi-flow cat, larger aftermarket exhaust, also look at upgrading the ignition system, possibly new intake manifold and larger throttle body. also port match both the header and manifold gaskets. Also look at non engine upgrades such as a short throw shifter if you are running a manual. It won't add any hp or torque, but the less time it takes to shift with the engine disengaged from the clutch, the less time your enigne isn't wasting it's power.And for staying N/A remember that engines are just air pumps, the more air you can get in and the more exhaust you can get out, the more power you'll make.
