performance parts

Whats the most horse power i can put into a 2001 325ci manual shift w/o a turbo or supercharger? Tell me what i need to gain a tremendous amount of lowend with sacraficing topend. i want it to rev like crazy through gears. And suspension wise what can i do to make it firmer and take corners harder. My bimmer is stock right now. I have about 4 g's to spend. what can i get to get me going quick? thnx in advance

rev like crazy as in higher redline? or go through the revs faster?

if it's the latter you're after look for a higher numerical ratio rear differential. You can probably get a custom lsd with a ramp job for variable lock up for about $3500 at metric mechanics.
