are you talking about trying to get a lil more performance? for extra power, while driving, try shifting into 3rd, 2nd, or low, you know, besides "D" (drive). maybe see about a "deckplate mod". i don't know how to or anything like that, but one guy said he was more or less surprised with the improvement/mod. i myself have the 2.7 4 banger love it good luck

change out your intake and filter, full exhaust mod as well

either that or just change your filter for the k&n and get the tornado for the throttle body gives you some power difference.

I used the deck plate and held it to my air cleaner box and traced around it on the outside with some white out and then used a small drill bit and drilled out my white circle and used some foam tape inbetween the deck plate and air box to seal it off.worked great for me !
