Gears, a programmer and an exhaust will all help!

oops...missed the 4.10 reference.

Have ya done a tune up lately? Changed out the fluids for synthetics? Cleaned the throttle body? Those will make a difference in performance, especially cleaning the throttle body.

How about a cold air intake? That will really help the throttle response.

what cold air intake did you get? what size wheels and tires do you have? do a few of the lightweight cheap stuff first...180 tstat, electric fan, Y-pipe, catback exhaust (and not flowmaster), headers, summit underdrive pulley, tq verter... I'm assuming you went with 4.10's because your tire size is around 32" or less in dia...
