318i engine upgrade ?

HY, I am a new BMW driver,I drive an 318i/ e36, but soon i will have my own e90-318i, and i want to know if there is anything to add more power to the engine. The car i am driving now is not so powerfull and i think that the new one will be the same, so what do you know about engine tuning? THX

It's the same basic engine that's in the 320i, it's just restricted, probably via software. It's still a 2 litre and will be faster than your e36...

0-60 E36: 11.3secs
0-60 E90: 10.0 secs

as far as I have a e90 318i I had the same question, ho can I get the 320i performance? so, still no answer and I think we have to check with our local representative office of BMW to understand how can we upgrade our engines... The first question is about the engine parts that should be replaced and the second one is the software upgrade... The funny thing is that a chiptunning to my actual engine will not bring me to 320i performance in terms of power but will definitely improve the torque... so, I'm still open to upgrade solutions and any advice is welcome...
