    OK, if you want launch, can i suggest the following...

    1. Is it auto or manual? (Guessing auto...)
    2. If auto, have you got a shift kit?
    3. If no, get that done first, stage II or III depending on how much lanuch you are acutually going for. Also get a stall converter.
    4. Have you had your throttle body cleaned out, bored, 100% opened? This will also add to throttle repsonce.
    5. Then look at getting a new set of diff ratios...

    Just remeber that the tranny drives the car, thats where the power and torque is lost! Start there if you already havn't.
