Just wondering...

every time i try to step on the gas to push the car a little faster, specially on the lower gears, i feel like the engine's gonna explode or something. maybe it's just too noisy for me or maybe i'm just too conscious... so i'm just wondering what kind of mods or adjustments can one do to remedy this a bit... i just want the car to feel like a little more lighter than it is i guess...

There's not much you can do to change the fundamental nature of a small engine in a relatively heavy car. It is what it is, and without adding a liter of displacement, you're not going to make an improvement you'll notice.

I do agree the drivetrain is geared very low, and the engine is quick to spin up, but it it weren't the car would be really sloooowwwww to accelerate.

Just have faith that Toyco engineered it right, and put a rev limiter on it so you can't hurt it. And wait for the TRD Supercharger...
