Another Hawaiian kine checking in

(The new member posting just below me will appreciate my screen name.)

I have a 1995 E320 ~70k miles that we keep pretty nice. I'm thinking about getting just a little silly and heat it up a bit. So far, I've only put 17" Kumhos on it and Koni shocks. If someone can direct me to past threads regarding the possibility of:
-Replacing the brakes with larger ones scavenged from another model
-sway bars to improve handling
-Performance computer chip
-Other ways of increasing power
-I might even consider a bi-turbo set-up, though I understand that there may be some significant issues to consider.

Oh, and one more thing: The parking brake self destructed. I don't even want to look down there after the noises my wife said it made, and I'm really afraid to ask Mercedes what they would charge. Leads on salvage items would be appreciated.

Mucho mahalo,
