More Mid Torque?

Ive got the listed mods below and am looking on how to get more mid end torque.. It is in certain situations that i am mid rpm's id guess anywhere from 2 to 4 and get on it and it pulls but i would like more.. Above 5 it rocks and rolls, so without downshifting to get the rpms up is there any thing, Long tubes, mid pipe etc..Nothing too extensive ie blower, head work, cams that would help there. Rolling fully through a gear is great power. Does anyone else get the same feeling sometimes or am i just smoking the good crack?

This is a good question to ask.

Mine is stock, and I feel the same way about getting more lower/mid range power. In looking at the dyno results all over the internet from various modifications, it does seem that most of the power is being found at the upper ranges. I guess that's fine if you track the car, but for a DD, you want something different.

Will be watching this thread.

Ask your tuner if they can write a custom tune with torque in mind. Other than that, rear gears would be the best bang for the buck. Think 3.73 or 4.10.

I agree with the rear gears, but the only caveat is that it would essentially serve to get you in the higher RPM's quicker, right? I would think an underdrive pulley would add a few lower rpm ponies. And an aluminum drive shaft would take weight off the rotating mass, optimizing power delivery throughout the range.
