I think it's a naturally aspirated engine, so you probably won't find anything for it. Sorry man, the woes of having a NA engine...

Beyond a dyno tune with fuel and spark remapping (if that can be done for our cars), or buying DINAN stuff - elec module, air cleaner, exhaust, etc. I am not sure how readily available other typical hot rod power upgrades are out there. All are expensive. If you are really daring, how about pulling stock motor and swapping in an amped up LSx derivative? The hard thing there would be to integrate the electronics, but tons of power is made by many folks who drop those motors into all kinds of project cars.

As for me, I love my car in stock trim. The old Caddy satisfies my hot rod inner self.

If you want a lot more power by far the cheapest thing to do is buy an M6 (about a $10K upgrade over a 650i on the used market).

Dinan intake/throttle body/exhaust/software will give you a few horsepower but if you do all the Dinan mods you will be spending close to half what an M6 will cost you and that adds 100HP vs maybe 20HP from Dinan.

RD and a few others made headers too but I think they are no longer in production. If you can find a set they will probably add more power than all the Dinan mods combined.

OP, it's not something you want to hear, but it's true!
