i recently bought a 92 yota 4 cyl 5 speed and there is barely and power i cleaned the throttle plate changed the wires and plugs also the oil and put in a k&n air filter. when u go full throttle it kinda bogs half throttle is where the power is. and there isn't much of that power i speak of . and suggestions? also i have a leak in my manifold but it shouldn't rob me of as much power as it is.

The biggest difference in power you will see are upgrading the air intake, exhaust, header and cam in that order. Open air elements really help throttle response, but a lot of people will tell you not to do it for fear of getting hydrolocked in the rain or mud.

The exhaust on these trucks is insanely restrictive to make it quite. Change out the 1.75" exhaust pipe for 2.25" and add a high flowing muffler/cat. Very noticeable torque and horsepower improvements.

Before you do anything though, you need to make sure your truck is in good working condition. Get a manual and good through all of the maintenaince checks. I did that with my truck when I bought it and found a couple of odd ball problems that once corrected, really helped improve the power the truck put out.
