Don't take this as a "I'm faster than you" kind of post or anything, but if
you're doing 120 going into the bus stop at the Glen, that's substantially
slower- I was doing 135 before going into the braking zone and I'm slow-
2:30-2:40 lap times in my old 200q. I redline'd 4th and was well into 5th
gear- if I could do 7500-7700 rpm in 4th, I wouldn't have to do a quick
upshift to 5th and then two gear downshift immediately afterward.

I know S4tts can do 150-155 there, as a comparison.

UFOs definitely better than G60s, but the OP had UFOs, not G60s- he was
asking about changing from UFO to 993tt setup using G60 struts. So G60 vs.
UFO discussion is pretty much irrelevant.
