Default How can I make my 2005 Scion xA faster?

I love my little Scion xA, but it's painfully slow. I don't feel safe merging onto the highway or even pulling off my neighborhood street into 45-mph traffic. I've read that they used the same engine in the lighter Echo. How can I increase my horsepower for less than $1,000? I'm not interested in racing--I just don't want to risk getting rammed every time I hit fast traffic.

2005? Sound like it needs a rehab.

Can't. Know what you mean though. Drove an Echo for a while. A For Sale sign is the best option. No performance enhancements are available for that economy engine.
