    Give the engine a full service (including cleaning the air filter), make sure your tyres are OK (alignment etc) and run it on super unleaded from now onwards.

    But I wouldn't get in remapeped until you've done all your engine/zorst mods, -that's if you've got any others planned

    Why not go remus straight through system. Shouldn't make it much louder and you'll be able to keep your tail pipe.
