Post 1992 Mercedes Benz 400E Performance ?'s

Hello fellow Mercedes Benz lovers my name is Daniel M. and I am a new member around here. Sorry if this isn't the correct place to be making a new thread... slight noob :P

Anyways I've had my 1992 Black Mercedes 400E since I graduated High School in the fall of 2008. It was actually a graduation present from my father. It was driven by a older gentlemen who BABIED this car. Always had it in a heated garage, oil maintenance, changing of oil filters and air filters etc. Recently had new bearings put on BOTH front wheels. 4 new tires put on 1 year ago. I'm no car expert and usually don't mess around with any kind of engine/performance upgrades. Is this car capable of handling such tunes to it? I read somewhere that some 1992 400E models were ECU or something like that? Once again sorry for my lack of knowledge on the engine parts. So here are my questions:

1. Can my HP be increased without any MAJOR work done to it?
2. What sites/stores would you recommend for such a task? (fair prices help!)

I've taken great care of this Benz since it's been in my possession. I've never abused it and only want to increase the overall performance of it. I could post pictures of it if people would like me to.

If anyone has the same model car as me and has had work done to the engine/exterior of the car please give me some helpful information.

Cheers lads, and thanks in advance!

Sadly there are no cheap or easy HP bumps.

See about a better-flowing (Borla or similar) exhaust. That always helps.
