put some 5.29 (or so) gears in, then you could hold 4th gear.:D
Or put a 5.0L behind that air filter:D

There is no cheap way to make that little engine more powerful. Gears and/or an engine swap would be a start. If you dont have the bucks too do it then you be stuck with what you got.:(

put an early 2.9 throttle body on ,it's noticeably larger and is a very easy swap or a 4.0 throttle body with some minor mods to your throttle cable
i went with the 4.0 and noticed a difference at
wot you could also try a performance chip .i have not tried one but i have heard the smaller the engine the better the chips work thats just a rumour though
