Timing is certainly a big part of increasing power (actually torque which is far more important) but I would call it drivability. To a degree, controlling fuel is almost as important too. For example, stomping on the pedal should start two things: dumping the right amount of fuel in the cylinder (right NOW!) and lighting the fire at the proper position on the stroke. To give you an example on my car, when floor it around 2500 rpm, my ECU shoots enough fuel to give me an AFR of around 11.8:1 AND 36 degrees of advance on the spark (CDI spark too - big difference in torque than wasted spark).

No doubt David is correct on the spark issue and addressing that will wake your motor up. But for real performance, you have to address a bit more.
