hmmm well you can try cutlas forums and stuff like that to see what others are doing (if they exist). But im sure you can do the basic stuff to any car. Such as air intake upgrades and exhaust upgrades. Also one thing you might want to try out is the Tornadoair.com air intake enhancer. Im not sure if it works or not , but htey have videos and dynos of the tornado air system giving up to 24% more mpg and up to 15 hp. That plus a max air intake box, upgraded MAF (if your car has one), exhaust, tornado, that would probably put you up in the 200s. Also you might want to look into an ignition upgrade. Get some good sparks and something equivilant to an HKS double power upgrade. It'll give you better idle / start and some hp.I do some searching today as well to see what I can find. I dont know anything about the cutlass so sorry if this doesnt help.

This isn't a cutlass forum, but it was the same engine... I'm not sure which 3.1 you have, but

Tornado is crap, "swirling air" is not what you need, that is taken care of in the head and elsewhere.

As for finding 45HP naturally aspirated, you will need more than intake and exhaust, and a fuel rail & injectors is not the right way right off the bat. I'll post a better build out solution for ya when I get back this afternoon

There was some guy on another forum who bought 4 or 5 of those tornado things, one for each of his cars, then went to a dyno and found he'd lost HP on every one of them...
