Engine swap (to a V8) or forced induction will give the best results, but can be pretty spendy. A swap to a 4.2 V6 from an F150 will also work well. I was going to suggest a split port head swap, but I just noticed you have a '99, so you've already got 'em. An intake manifold swap from a Windstar van is supposed to be worth a few H.P..
IIRC, there is a lengthy thread in the V6/2.3 tech section that you may find helpful. I'll see if I can dig it up.

Motor swaps are an option. You can still make decent power be installing a supercharger or if you spend a little more.... A turbo. your 3.8 would be plenty fun with a supercharger and a set of gears out back

No offense intended dude, I just thought how it was funny that you went from a really really small mod like a chip, all the way to the other extreme of swapping to a V8. There's a lot of ground in between.
