Just keep it tuned up. Replace all filters, and fluid, plugs, wires, etc. Keep your tires properly inflated and maintain the car so it rides and looks like new.

What motor do you have because I have a 86 with a 307 and want more power but Im not ready to do a motor swap just yet. I was just gonna do headers and true duals for now I think that would wake it up a lot more.

tom's right....spark plugs can make a world of difference if u havent changed them recently, cold air intake, heat wrap headers, even higher octane gas...on newer cars i know u can get a 25hp difference from regular to premuim gas (read an article pertaining to new mustang)
