If they plan to bring the Exige here, it wouldn't make much sense to add power to the Elise. I doubt that a significantly more expensive car that doesn't perform better would be a big success.

And as others have mentioned, 190HP out of a 1.8l normally aspirated engine is a lot. I would be surprised if they could gain much without using forced induction. I'm sure that some gains can be had with aftermarket parts, but there you accept compromises (noise, emissions, fuel economy, reliability, ...) that the original manufacturer couldn't make.
