power loss

Here's a problem that seems to be a common one with the 4cyl motors with the auto trans.I have done a full tune up on my 95 with 8mm accel wires...accel coil...KN drop in filter...new borg warner cap and rotor.It runs alot better and has a noticable increase in power but whenever I go up the steeper roads in my area it really labors..on one road I can't get it up past 35-38mph..Could it be gear ratio...from what I can find it has 3.73 gearing but I could be wrong...The rear has 35C on the top ears and 5041 on the bottom D/S and 10 on the bottom P/S.....Driving on regular roads and up and down normal hills it runs fine but it loses power when I hit the bigger hills...like warrenville road(for the jersey guys in somerset county).....Thanks in advance for the time and help...Joey
