Can't beat Imola Yellow; looks like170mph standing still.
I can highly recommend the abt chip. Pricey but pulls like a train from
1200rpm. Mid range torque is so strong that there is little point revving
past 4000 even when driving hard.
The rear support bracket on my stock exhaust failed a few months ago. It is
lashed together OK but if I have to replace it I would happily pay a bit
more for a better exhaust. Is it worth fitting an uprated tail section
alone, or do you have to change the lot to get some extra performance?
