Other than bolting on some boost... nothing.

Do you have oversized tires? If so the only way to "regain" power is to regear the axles.

You can get some by replacing your catalytic converter, putting on a lower resistance muffler and going to a larger diameter exhaust pipe. It won't be a lot but it will help.

anyone think that homebrew turbo is worth it? might order that e-book and give it a try.....
