Unhappy Fuel pressure 2.3

Alright checked fuel pressure and its at 32 at idle jumps to 40 when you give gas.This is suposse to be within specs. However I am never happy so your thoughts please.

I have changed plugs,wires,coil packs, timing belt, and tenisior,cleaned a lot of stuff. now has a empty cat and a Flowmaster delta 40, new gaskets on intake manifold and exhaust and throttle body, just replace the water pump.The only other change in last 6 months is 3 body lift and bigger tires went from 14 to 15.

Truck doesn't seem to have power it did before the lift, It hesates when start out and it will not pull a hill 60 at 3500 rpm's in 4th best I can do ( this is on a 7% hill 2 miles up).

Could be old and a 4 cyl. 1996 2.3 5SPD with a 130,000.

1996 Ranger XLT reg cab 2wd
2.3 and 5spd
3 inch PA body lift & new stock bushings
Flowmaster Delta 40 muffler
New 15 Outlaw wheels
No mods to the motor yet
