Time out error on pipes, how to optimize?

My pipe is here: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=d9c014fe6a79ac6d64583dceebffd424&_render=rss It's a master feed of many different feeds, including some manual feeds I made with YQL/Pipes. It takes anywhere from 8-15 seconds to run, sometimes even longer and many instances it just times out. How can I optimize it?

I'm only doing 2 operations on the items:

  1. every item.link I send via YQL to a link shortening service.
  2. Looping through each item and appending a string before the item.title (maybe there's a [faster] way to this without a loop?)
