ton improve the torque on this car? I've had

Honestly nothing really it is a base model. If you plan on keeping the car and want it to be faster than most mustangs or whatever you have to swap the motor and computer. K24 is the motor most people put into the car. And a Kpro is the computer most people put into the car. But if you don't have much money you can put a race header on it it'll make a decent difference.
