There was a recent plastidip thread and someone mentioned that it now comes in all colors, so this may be your best option.

There really isn't a lot you can do for the N52 engine in the 328 to increase the HP significantly. It is a normally aspirated engine and there is not a lot you can do other than get a few HP here...
