Let ask you a important question. What is your extra torque you used for. If get a answer for that we can give you some ideas

Probably one of the best ways would be to get a tuner, and depending on why you want it, maybe lower gears.

Pretty much the same way you add HP. CAI, exhaust, and a tuner.

You could also go as far as head and intake plenum work, cam and headers.

Are you looking for off idle torque? If so then I don't feel opening up the intake and exhaust is the way to go. When you do that more times than not you lose velocity of the air coming in and going out of the engine which will hurt your off idle torque. Those things may increase your peak HP and TQ but not at low RPM's. I'd look more into an efan, tuner to adjust timing, and like was mentioned earlier...gears.

If you are looking for off the line tq, then you want to go to a 4.10 or 4.56 gear ratio out back and a higher stall converter.
