Making my 2001 bmw 330i go bwaaaap bwaaap

I'm really trying to make this thing pull more then it already does, I can't find very many performance mods for the 330i but I'm sure someone here knows where I can, I'm pretty new to this stuff so I'm sorry in advance for the way I'm writing this out lol basically I just want to know what I can do for it and where to get the parts, maybe advice too if anyone's got any

The only N/A mods that help at all are headers and a tune. The M54 is pretty maxed out from the factory.

Beyond that, forced induction or S54 swap.

Diff with higher ratio peps it up.

Turbo. Not cheap though. Sell your E46 and get a G35 https://drive.google.com/folderview?...0R6qNMSomHfNTV

Other than headers, maybe a higher ratio diff, I wouldn't bother. M3's are plentiful and cheap (depends), just buy one of those.
