got it wednesday mate! thought id join you in the two car brigade, my needs are the opposite of yours, you want a handler, whereas i want some turbo fun for straightline power, have been pretty silent on here these last few days as iv had the engine bay stripped out for a major service, my first dabble in playing with an engine properly. someone coming soon to diagnose a fault as a sensor somewhere is playing up intermittently, the in gear acceleration is good fun and the turbo antics are great, am just awaitng my dump valve coming in the post. im off to scotland tonight til friday so all should be well bty then. then ill wait til im 21, (sep 26th) and insure it, then the willy will be garaged for winter.
6500 rpm in fifth indicated around 142(?) Same top speed as my friends Pulsar GTiR which is lightly modded. (both flat out for about 10 minutes on deserted runway) So probably realistically 138 as it says in the manual.... or if anyone can work out what 6500 rpm in 5th gear equates to???
if you get it chipped you max possible speed will go up (20.6mph *rpm), as standard i think you would need a big hill to hit the limiter, but with a few mods and say a 7800 limiter (Upped as part of being chipped) would give a max possible of 160mph if you had enough power
