Default Elevation change issues

Well I moved to Wyoming from Micigan about 8 months ago and my 2001 XJ is having a hard time at this high elevation. It has lost a great deal of power and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how I could get back some of that lost power or if there is anything i can do to adjust it to this elevation. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

-thanks ITT

Sorry dude... it is an effect of the thin air... I have a few mode that make my 96 very snappy. Your mpg will suffer too. Cost of living in Gods country.

Try changing your spark plugs. Elevation changes can sometimes screw with them.
