  I concur.  I've done a LOT to my Rabbit engine and to Dad's TD 
in the pickup up to ceramic coating the prechambers and piston 
tops.  I'd say I've picked up 10 to 15 hp (seat of the pants dyno) 
tops.  Enough it's noticeable but just marginally really good for 
an NA.  Dad's pickup probably similar but they start out with 64 
hp I believe.  A slightly dirty air filter makes my Rabbit noticeably 
slow down ( just a couple mph) on one particular hill.  More fuel 
won't do a thing to help but more air first does.  Perhaps altering 
timing might help but timing and fueling is about all you can do unless 
you start changing pump pressures, which ultimately changes pump 
timing I believe.
