Speed question

This single post is part of a larger thread. Start from the top or view this post in context.

I know that this moped being only a 1.5 HP machine, will not go very fast..it topped out at 27 MPH. I really would like to be able to keep up with the city traffic. 40 MPH would be really nice...but even an extra 5-7 MPH would be great. I know that the gains from modifications are a subject of great debate and I've read many of the old posts. Would some of the experts summarize the speed gain for me for the following mod's and if there is downside why it shouldn't be done Thanks!!

Rejetting the Carb: Speed Gain?

Changing the sprocket: Speed Gain?

Biturbo Exhaust: Speedo Gain? Do I need to rejet the carb or do anything else to make this work well?

Modifying the Air filter: Speed gain? My air box is 'permanently' sealed up..so I don't even know the internal construction. Can you clean them out? Do they need to be?

60 cc Speed Kit: Speed Gain? Will stock brakes give me a death wish? How reliable? What other mods are necessary to make this work?

70 cc Speed Kit: same as above

I have a 1986 Puch Maxi Sport 1.5 HP

Thanks guys!
