Give the engine a dyno tune. You'll have a big silly smile on your face when you drive it after that.

the legal bit's a bit scary, tho - what happens if u stack it? is it actually insured, and what happens if you are the driver? Not trying to be a nanny, but you'd hate to be in that position if some nong drives into you or anything...
