    No gain but free up power with an electric fan would be a cheaper option but re-gearing would be the best option.

    The only way is to improve engine efficency ( pretty tough without spending a bunch for small improvement, headers, airflow, tuning the computer ), or either make it lighter, or less wheel weight/rolling resistance which I do not think you want to do.

    Not much help I know but it is hard to improve engine efficency these days on the cheep like we could in the good old days.
