Throttle response

I bought a '13 Focus SE 5 speed a couple of weeks ago. Really enjoying the handling, the awesome manual transmission, and the smooth revving engine, but I've noticed the throttle response is pretty poor. I have an '08 scion xD with only 128hp that feels a lot quicker off the line due to the throttle response and possibly the gearing, not sure. The Focus pulls harder once you get going and feels decently strong in 2nd-5th gear but weak in 1st gear. Has anyone else noticed this? What it my best bet for improving throttle response? Intake or exhaust or wait for an ECU remap?
