Is there any thing I can put into my car to make it faster other than a turbo or supercharger

Please search. You're not the first person to ask. In simple, no nothing will make it noticeably faster without FI.

Unless you want to invest in:

performance camshafts
flow-optimized headers
performance software to capitalize on your above gains

and several other supporting mods, there is nothing that will increase the power of your car. Bolt-on's alone are ineffectual on our cars. You CAN make larger power on our engines - some members have had 260+ on non-M motors, but it will cost a lot of money, time, knowledge, and attention to detail. Do you have specific goals for power figures?

Nothing that's worth the money. You can spend a few thousand on camshafts, intake, exhaust, headers,etc you might as well buy a used M3.

Other than a Supercharger or Turbo? Nothing that will be as substantial. Sure you could get some extra here and there from an intake, tune and exhaust (headers being the biggest bang for your buck), but they're not as significant as adding boost.
