Feeling a little down on torque. What should I check?

K, so I've a KLZE w/ probinator, 9lb fidanza flywheel, test pipe, HEI mod.
Recently it's been feeling a little bit lacking in torque. It isn't terrible, it's just not pulling like it did only a few months back. I recently added a CAI, that helped a little, mainly just bumped the power up a bit in the high RPM range.
I'm just wondering if anyone has had a similar, unexplained drop in power and worked out the cause?
I have replaced leads and plugs (NGK), run a fuel additive injector cleaner a couple of times, cleaned the throttle body and replaced the vacuum lines to the VRIS system, so they are working.
I have heard that the crank angle sensor can go, which allegedly doesn't kill the engine, just makes it run a little less advanced timing and thus less power. Can anyone verify this?

Maybe check for vac leaks...maybe O2 sensors are on their way out...fpr not regulating fuel pressure as it should...
