Like your build!! As far as getting more get up and go without going crazy on engine mods. I would look into gearing. I would look into 4.56 or 4.88 gears, it will affect your mileage and top speed, but when your pulling a hill or accelerating you'll see a major difference. Glad to see women enjoying this hobby.
