You Can't....

Does the 89 SE Have the 2.97 F79 gear ratio?

An intake. and possibly a new cat if you still have the original will help wake it up a bit.. Delco Type Ignition set up may give you a little better response with a set of NGK TR55 plugs.. There are a few things that will make it purr a little better...

WOT timing for it should be 24*

Low load with TCC lock should give you 39-44* on average..

And make sure you don't use a Bosch O2 with this car...

AC Delco or possibly Denso
