these are the few things that i have done to the truck so far.
i forgot to mention that i also changed the plugs and wires, also the cap and rotor. they were in bad shape and so that could have come into play with the gain in hp.

Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE
After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work.
Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the
catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect
opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner
to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the
converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I
would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice
any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed
the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel
the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the
result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links
