wise performance upgrades

New to forum, I have an e46 323 sedan, low end seems a little sluggish, is there something that I can easily do to change this?

It's a 323 so don't expect a lot. Start with simple tune-up items such as fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs and run a bottle of Chevron Techron during your next fill up.

Lol so true, If you want power I would just drop a turbo or supercharger especially since its a 323.. Good Luck and Welcome aboard!

Thanks guys. Having the lowest model e46 is kinda lame. Thought it would be more powerful. The more I search this forum I'm seeing alot of complaints of lacking torque. Oh well it's still a nice car for 2,000 bucks.
