Bone Stock 1997 328i mods help...

ok i have a 1997 328i. i want to mod it up piece by piece. where should i start? i don't care about exterior mods. I want to be a sleeper. I'm talking about engine mods and suspension and just about anything that will make me gain HP. Can anyone help? I'm kind of on a budget so a list from lowest to highest will help. Your help will be highly appreciated. Thanx for reading (oh and what brands should i go with? which ones are the best?)

Johnny covered it pretty well. I'd only add a lower geared limited slip diff and maybe S52 cams if you have a lot of extra cashola to blow.

edit: Forgot to mention. Look up Raceland headers. People are saying very good things about them and they cost almost nothing http://sap082.channeladvisor.com/p-3...ries-6cyl.aspx

I have a 96 328 and was looking to do some mods, first thing i was looking at was a diff swap.... what would be a good swap?
and what is the plus side of swapping the intake vs. the stock one?
