Welcome to EM. mush3gan hit it on the head. Not much can beat driving technique (especially considering cost). Start your journey there. I'd bet you can hit high 20s fairly easily, and with a bit more work low 30s could be in your grasp without any modifications at all.

As for modifications, they definitly don't hurt when done right. Look into a grill block and/or other aerodynamic modifications that are listed in a sticky in the aero forum. They usually give you a good bang for your buck.
