    Not much you can do to the e46 to release much power without supercharging. The best thing to look at is a remap

    If your keen on uprating a few things I guess a decent induction kit enclosed or with heatsheild, AFE do a decent one or there is a racing dynamics one that incorporates the factory air intake into its heatshield which looks ok and uses a K & N cone filter with it. A remap by one of the forum vendors would help and ive seen one of the guys mention around a 10 - 15bhp increase on the 328i.
    Ive also seen uprated ignition coil packs sold by a few companies which claim to increase throttle response and BHP depending on the condition of your engine. Bav Auto in the states sell this for the E46. Just a few ideas.

    I can't see plasma coils doing anything.
    You'll either burn what is in the cylinder or misfire, and they shouldn't be misfiring anyway.
    They are also hugely expensive!

    If the parts are getting cheaper, you can get an M54 330i inlet manifold (it'll need a custom plate to mount the original throttle) and that can release some more power, but not as big as the M50 on an M52.

    What Alpina said...not much you can do on a NA car.

    To compliment the engine mods, have you thought about weight reduction ?
    lighter body panels
    lighter rims
    lighter rotors
    lighter propshaft

    see where I'm going here ?

    or perhaps fitting an M3 diff to aid in acceleration ..?
