have you tried a torque converter? There's a thread with info on it in the Project cars board:

go to reader's poll...

I don't know if you have one yet, or whether it would actually alter top-end HP, since its primary use is faster kick-off.

And have you tried toggling the OD? It seems to me that my car really restricts 3rd gear RPMs with the OD off. I like to toggle it off and on again when I'm at top speed to get it off of overdrive and back into 3rd gear. It's just a thought, and it probably won't work. :(

I was hoping to soup up my auto, too... :(

actually...

the automatic doesn't even put out the 87-90 ponies at the wheels that the manual does. It's more like 80! I think the auto takes around 30% off the sucker as compared to 20% for the manual.

So if you're at 97hp, cheer up! You've got around 20 extra ponies that weren't there before!

And you haven't even touched your tranny, have you?
