Hardware upgrade recommendations before new tune

Until recently I wasn't considering power upgrades to my (almost all stock) 08 Elise SC, concentrating instead on improving my driving. But last week after a long track session, the wiring in my trunk melted and the car was in danger of going up in flames due to exhaust heat.
Now I need to de-cat and a tune to go with it.

Since I will be getting a tune, I am wondering if there are any inexpensive hardware upgrades I should also be considering. I found plenty of advice for Exige or NA Elise but I am not sure what is applicable to SC with M45. For the foreseeable future I am planning to stay with the stock M45 supercharger. Perhaps later I will add water/(meth?) injection.
The car is used 80% track, 20% street.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
