I've performed PCR the standard way and have obtained around 1.3 kb when
wanted, no special conditions.

Try looking into the use of gp90? the use of single stranded DNA binding
proteins that stabilise it. I read something on this a long time ago. Also
look into different sources of Taq. I think vent from pharmacia is supposed
to make up to 12kb (not). Try amersham as well they do a taq also.
