We have had a couple on our rollers testing out some tunes.

The highest one we have seen so far is 570 BHP - apparently any more than this and the gearbox doesn't like it.

Chris you 'old dog' lol Nice one

Blimey, service every 6 months/6k - interesting! Won't bother you though eh.

Enjoy, if that isn't an understatement.
