try just cleaning your whole engine (internal) using like seafoam of whatever that crap is and changing all your oils: diffs, gear, engine with sythetics.

Does a full synthetic oil really help out that much over a conventional oil? I have been using Valvoline Max life synthetic blend with some lucas oil stabilizer. would going with a full syn. help out with the No Torque issue of the 3rz's?

No it does not, their just yanking yer chain man...at least I hope they are, to think syn oil is going to improve (seat of the pants improvement) is crazy

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Depending on how much your wanting to spend, you can get an Header, cat back, and a supercharger for your 2.7

I recomend the North West Off Road Try "Y" header, a dynomax cat back, and an Alpine SC. Those will put you at more hp than the 3.4

Go drive a Ford 2.3 4cyl. for a couple blocks & trust me your 2.7 will feel like a rocket ! All B.S. aside how many miles ? Last tune up ? Alot of guys think a tune up is just changing plugs,maybe a filter. If its been awhile or you don't know when the last tune up was it would probably be to your advantage to spend the bucks & do it all, complete fluid change,plugs, fuel filter/air filter, have your emissions checked (although it would probably code on you if something wrong) set the valves (or check the settings at least) , maybe it would fix your sluggish motor (couldn't hurt)Good luck....

it could be an air filter or injector problem, i would get a new filter and injector cleaner for starters ( around 20 - 30$ for the filter and 4$ for the injector cleaner
