Buy an E46 M3. Otherwise there's some supercharger kits but they're not cheap.

It's a smaller engine (2.2L vs 2.8L) so there's no way it's making the same power.

Also, your engine is more related to the 325 and 330 engines (M54), so I would imagine you would be looking for 330 parts. The 328 was an M52 engine.

Seriously, if you want more power and don't want to switch engines/cars, the best bet is a supercharger. Easy intake/exhaust mods are only gonna get you 5-10hp max.

Unfortunately the supercharger kits are probably worth more than your car, but you may be able to find a used system.

There are cheap ebay turbo kits if you have a shop to install it. If engine blows up, swap in a 330 engine.
