Default Which fix re-gained you the most Horsepower?

The other day I F'ed up cleaning my MAF sensor so I had to get a new one. I noticed my 40-50 acceleration is a little better,enough to notice it. O2 sensor replacement didnt seem to do anything.

My next project is my fuel filter, will that regain some lost power?

Only if it'* severely clogged.

Plugs/wires are the most common for regaining lost power.

Can we make an effor to stay on topic out of respect for the topic author? Jokes are for the lounge, and I've already deleted one blatant attempt at humor already in this topic.

Back on topic.

Head gaskets are a rare case with our motors.

The catalytic converter can be bad or clogged and It could reduce HP.
