I've been driving like a mad~man; testing how little mpg I might not achieve, having fitted a new set of 99 front dampers on the 96. Much easier to keep her on four wheels. N' I like it :-)

If you get the valve gear sorted so you can rev it higher, you should get a decent top speed anyway. Otherwise look out for a rally gearset.
