Thx for all the reply guys...

That’s why I asked it in the first place.

An empty Jimny is driving very pleasant, but when adding a roofrack, a tent on it and loading too much stuff because wifey want’s everything with her it’s making the Jimny very very slow.

Another obsessed JIMNY owner...

At that point it might be worthwhile recalibratiing your wife's expectations of what is possible to bring on a trip. I have friends who manage to fill an A6 Avant with everything that could potentially want and 90pc of it is never unpacked from the back of the car, yet my wife and myself and the dog can fit everything we need in the back of Dreadnaught and I can still see out of the rear window.

Well said Mr Lambert, early holidays with my wife were on a motorbike. Basic hard luggage would do the two of us a fortnight and it was a modest bike too.

I don't know EU regs but here in the states I would replace the exhaust with a custom magnaflow setup, just a single pipe setup. Magnaflow makes hi flow cats that are typically better than the factory cats as far as quality, efficiency , and lifespan. They are not cheap especially if you opt for the low emissions compliant version. A good exhaust company can fabricate it. Intake is also an easy upgrade, it may only require a K&N filter and minor modification to get more air into the airbox. From what I see the K15B is likely under powered in favor of torques. Doing to intake exhaust mods typically shows higher torques gains which is what you need. You could do more research into the K15B's design and determine how much power can be run through the system. You have to factor the transmission, and it may require additional cooling. I don't know if Suzuki has recommended tow package? Good luck, I'm interested in hearing about it.
