On top of that the mk4 is a bit heavier than the mk3 so that would explain the similar performance
So your new car is actuall approx 10-13 Hp more but about 50kgs heavier (depending on the exact model/s)
A low cost "quick fix" is to disable your EGR by disconnecting one of the wires, a mk4 owner reported better pick up from low revs and better acceleration with this done, the engine management light will come on though (this should not cause any other problems, and can be reset with a code reader)
tuning boxes range from £7 resistor boxes on e-bay to £400+ digital multi-map co-processor devices specifically set up for the exact make model of car, remaps can vary in price/ quality too
A decent tuning box, remap or blufin will give your car a decent, noticable increase in power, some tuners offer a decat, DPF removal (phisically and electronically) and a remap as a package (won't be cheap though)
A stainlass steel sports exhaust system and a larger intercooler would finish it off nicely (- best to do the phisical mods before a custom remap though )
