Maybe a turbo. My E36M3 has over 500 rwhp and over 500 lbs of rwtq and weighs 500 lbs less than my E90M3, and would run away from my E90M3. You can get nearly the same power out of an E36 328i with M52 engine that is turbocharged. Turbos are awesome. A stage 2 centrifugal supercharger might even allow an E36 328i to keep up with or beat the E90M3. I know my E36M3 was faster than my E90M3 when I had a centrifugal supercharger rather than a turbocharger.
