Probably just different diff or 6 speed gearbox is needed for that. Or a very high hill :D

Installed full Supersprint exhaust (race headers, catless midpipe, sport muffler). Some videos with sound.

First video is with soft top up


Second - I just asked my mom to rev the engine a little to take this vid.


IMHO it is VERY loud and I don't like the drone at 2k-3k range. Some people are saying that installing sport cats should solve that before looking into Helmholtz resonator... Would like to know your opinion on the sound and thoughts.

Oh, man, you really need to get rid of that drone. That could do some serious ear damage. Even my speakers didn't like it, neither did the cat and lots of small loose objects in the room began to vibrate.

Put some Harley pipes under your car.... straight thru's 8-)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it

Seems like Supersprints have some break-in period. After 200km of driving 90% of that drone is gone :) Can't complain anymore!

Tried the fitting of Hamann hardtop. Fits nicely, don't see any issues.
