Engine build

I have a 02 m3 with 113000 miles and I'm wanting to get about 400hp to the wheels so I'm wanting to know what I should do to achieve that goal. I would like it to be all bolt on parts and no supercharger or turbo they cost to much..

400 to the wheels?

Easiest way and Safest: SuperCharger

Better satisfaction of an actual "build": Cams/Intake/Full exhaust/Full custom tune/Port Polish and a lot of Dyno days.

A supercharger would end up being cheaper IMO

However I would say install a full exhaust system, CSL intake, alpha N tune and cams. I was just at Active Autowerke the other day and their E46 M3 racecar was putting out as much hp as some of their supercharged cars. Im pretty sure they can build you a monster S54
