Second'ed on the exhaust, what are the 2 coupes
running?  I definitely picked up a few ponies
from Scorpion to a full turbo-back 3".  I've run a 
stock chip in my 3B coupe, and it is only marginally
faster than the old 7A.  IA 3+ with Scorpion made it
interesting.  The exhaust makes it frightening!
