Check out this thread from a couple weeks ago. There's a lot of stupid comments, but there's a little useful information too.

you sound like dramon..."can i just tune my car so the powerband is from 0-5k" why wouldnt you want your 5/6th ports to open, get those sleeves and be done with it.

If you want torque, it's all about working six port sleeves, exhaust and intake propery set up for midrange power band, and correct fuel / air mixture that comes with having clean filters and injectors and good maintenance. If you are a real rotorhead you can port the engine or add forced induction. Bwahahahaha!
