1995 325 vert... poor acceleration

jut bought it.. runs very good. Smooth stable idle. starts right away without problems, and runs smooth at speed. it is a 5 speed manual

it does however seem to have very poor acceleration. I had mentioned this to a few people in another thread.

my other car is an extremely fast 2000 mustang gt with a 15k dollar race motor in it, so I am not sure if it is just a comparison situation.

the engine runs very quiet... no tapping or noises. it just seems like when I press the gas pedal, it is very slow to come to speed. it almost sounds like it is slightly hesitating until it gets to about 3700 rpm, and then it starts to accelerate a little better. it does not feel as if the car is "pulling" hard at all ever. I have started to run a quart of techron additive in every tank of 93 i put into it. I have run 3 tanks through it so far, and I think it is starting to feel a little better. It still does not feel like it is even close to accelerating like an "ultimate driving machine".

honestly, I had a 1980 320i 20 years ago with a 4 cylinder engine that seemed to pull way harder. of course back in those days i didnt have a 600 hp monster to compare it to.

Suggestions? any help and or tips are appreciated.
