overcoming the 12 cycle GPIO waitstate for TFT LCD

Hello guys,


Is there any way to overcome the 12 cycle GPIO wait state in the coldfire MCF52255?


I am driving a 320x240 pixel TFT LCD with GPIO but I am getting slow frame rates because this bottleneck.


The LCD has a integrated controller that generates the VSYNC and HSYNC signals. All I have to do is put the pixel color on port TJ and port TI, then lower and rise a clock signal (just another pin in port UA).  


Any suggestions?
