ummm changing the air filter fuel filter plugs plug wires might help...it could be a bad O2 sensor but that usually makes the check engine lite come on

New intake and exhaust always help. Bet then you start getting into all sorts of ohther stuff to upgrade like new ignition systems and junk like that.
