To achieve such performances, in addition to performance tuning the engine, Dynatek has replaced the two original catalytic converters with two 200-cell sports catalytic converters, and the original exhaust line with an approved AKRAPOVIC line.


With regard to the wheels, wide is the choice for tyres as Caractere Exclusive is offering CW1 Graphite or Silver rims 9.5x22" at the front and 11x22'' at the rear.
