Talking I need more torque! Suggestions?

I was on the Berlin Tpke. last night and a Dodge Neon R/T pulled up to the line, didn't even rev. and took off like a damn shot, i know those are really good at take off, but my car should have been able to keep up. My car is So logey on take off it scares me.
My question is, how can I gain back my torque? I currently have a JCSports intake and a 2.25" cat-back exhaust, that's it.
Should I put the stock intake set-up back on and get a K&N panel filter?
Any other ideas?

Well, depends on your model year. 2000+ cobb, ISR, or GAnzflow would be better for your intake. All preserve more low end. 99 and below, afaik you're kinda stuffed on intakes with low end.

Consider the borla headers. They are supposed to help midrange alot.

(Im assuming you're talking about low end)

Yes, the Borla headers seem to have helped my midrange but the JC Sports intake hurt my low end. I put the stock intake back on and now my low end is back but it's gone flat during passing maneuvers.

I'd say wait for some of the new intakes that are getting ready to come out. Cobb Tuning has one and I believe Compass Motorsports also has one. If you can't wait and you have a 2000 - 2001 try the Ganz Flow. Good bang for the buck. If you have a '98-'99 wait a little more or try the DIY PRM intake from Larry Ganz.
