How about pushing the gas pedal further down or letting it wind out to redline?

Depending on how many miles you've got on her there's cleaning the MAF and the throttle body.

Outside of cleaning, there's always the CAI + tune route (or just tune)

run the tank fairly empty, then run a tank of preumium gas to rid of some of the crappy fuel in the tank. Car always runs smoother on some premium fuel

shes got like 60,200 somethin and how would u clean the MAF and the TB? I have a cai and true dual setup.

i also have ran a few tanks of 93, but switched back due to high gass prices and i moved to MN and can find a gas station around here that has 93.

Don't bother with the coil.

Your wires are due for replacement though.

Replace your fuel filter if you haven't already.
