With time and money, anything is possible. Lol! No, serious though, there isn't much you can do to our cars to boost performance. The transmissions are a huge factor in that. Yes, you can add an intake and exhaust, but it's mostly for sound. You may pick up an extra 1-2 real world horsepower. Those claims on their websites are perfect world conditions and will not always get anywheres close to what they claim. I know, how dare they lie, right? Anyways, unless you swap out the transmission, you pretty much stuck with what you got. Now put a good 5 or 6 speed standard in it and then your options are unlimited! Turbos, engine porting, the works!

So, options...
1) spend a little money, get you an intake and exhaust you like, make it sound a little better, be happy and just drive!
2) spend even more money, swap out transmission, get some boost, wonder what else is needed to keep it where you like it.
3) spend a lot of money and trade in car for something that doesn't have only 144 horsepower.

At the end of the day, long as you enjoy your car, that’s all that matters. Everyone has their own personal take to a general item feel more like theirs. Sold my M4 for the CHR because I like the looks of the CHR. After many sport cars, I don’t mind going slow anymore. It REALLY isn’t that bad, drivewise and accelerating.

Not sure. I think the Corolla is the only other car that has the same size motor, but if it's the same exact one, I couldn't tell you. So don't know if the transmissions are just swappable.
