It's a heavy car and just not built for speed but after saying that, I find no problems at all keeping up with 99% of everyday traffic. Chips don't work but I will say that after adding a more flow through air filter, it seemed to take off better from a standing start. Not a racer by any means but got rid of the bog down feeling after you first stepped on the gas pedal.

If you looking at the "chips" that they sell on Fleybay, forget it. They trick the computer into thinking there's colder air coming into the throttle body. The timing is advanced a little and more fuel is dumped into the system. A couple extra HP gain that you won't feel and it's working ALL the time, even at idle.
