I need more NA power!!!

I have a 2004 330i with ebay headers, intake, b+m short shifter, H+R springs and bilstein sturts. I am at the point where more power is in order. Turbo is not an option, since I autocross the car and that only works with a smaller turbo(not worth it). My idea is engine work and 75 shot of nitrous. The problem is I can't seem to find any m54 valve springs or valves. Nor can I find any piston rods, or pistons, or crankshafts or anyhting internal aside from the camsand lifters. Is this the wrong enigne to do this to. Am i missing all the good sites for this stuff?

i think your missing all the good sites. lol.

you should call up all the 'bigger' companies for the parts you want and see if they have them. i know they make eagle rods for our cars, other than that, i'm not too sure. there are a few guys on this board who have built m54s.

For the money you'd spend to build the motor, you can buy a supercharger and have more power than you could ever get N/A without spending ridiculous amounts of $$

The thing is that I beat on my car pretty bad and I need someting that will take abuse over and over again. A built motor is the safest bet. I will do some supercharger research.
