forced induction ... anything else, and you're just pissing money away for minimal gains.

depending on what model car you have you might be able to swap some engine compenets, cams etc... but after swapping a few such parts you are almost up to what a FI kit would cost... it also depends on whether or not you can/will be doing the labor yourself.

Ljk619 is an unknown quantity at this point
Smaller throttle body, if you can find one. Same outcome as Speed's ^ manifold swap. Gobs of torque (depending on how much smaller) but you'll lose high end power.

Best way to go is Forced Induction. Nothign else wil really make that much of a noticable difference when it comes to torque.
