Well if you want more power there are plenty of different things you can do.
I hope your car is a manual.

You can do the basics. SInce you have a 328, it will respond better to bolt on modifications.
I recommend you get intake, exhaust, and software.

Intake, Cat Back Exhaust, Software, and Pulleys would give your car a nice jump. If your car is manual, I highly recommend you swapping out your differential for a automatic ratio one, it will feel like night and day. If this isn't enough for you, then you can add some headers as well as cams for even more power. However both of these are a little on the costly side. Anything after this would be a supercharger or internal work. How much power do you want, and how much do you want to spend is the question..
