Cheapest way to make an E30 faster?

hi, i'm still thinking about buying an E30.. possible a 320i or a 325i..

but they aren't that fast (atleast the 320i isn't)..
but which way is the best and cheapest to make it more powerfull ?
losing weight is the first one.. but besides that.. ?
... a turbo is to much $$...

anyone ?

Fake because you dont have it all the time...
Whatever money you have....
For the price of a turbo, supercharger, heavy engine work you can get NOS much cheaper...

But for bigger gains, 50Hp+ you have to go turbo/super/all motor/NOS...

Buy a 325i and go to a driving school.

Going fast in a straight line gets boring within a week of getting the car, no matter how much power it has. Focus on turning, it's a lot more fun, not to mention challenging.
