0-100km/h in 9.3 seconds and a quarter mile in about 17 flat.

Potential is there and i guess it's not too shabby, for what you get anyway. But it's screaming to be massaged he he he...

i'm sure lots of people have. i certainly have. hit rev limit in second once by accident....i was demorilysing my mates corolla and while enjoying the moment forgot to change into third . but i can tell ya the power drops off after around 6500 anyways....its not worth taking it any further....i suppose a chip may help the little bugger to pull hard all the way.

It cuts out at 6800rpm and from experience is getting breathless not much past 6000rpm even tho it's still refined and smooth. Won't hit 7k though. I have hit it once just out of interest in 2nd, kinda bounced then I never go above 6000 these days, useless. I have been htinking of either chipping or putting on cat-backs. I'm not interested too much in the exhaust sound, the stock job keeps me happy. I just want the responsiveness. What do you recommend (can get both for the same price of about $650)
