Need Review : Carbon-Fiber Subframe

Hello all.
I am considering purchasing a carbon-fiber subframe, for a 2017, 1299 S. (Feedback from ANY Panigale rider is welcomed, regardless of which model they ride).
I used the search-engine on this forum, and while I did find some information, it did not answer all of my questions. I am looking for feedback, on the following topics:

Strength and Rigidness: Compared to the factory, metal, subframe, how did the subframe perform, when used in street, and track situations; and with light, and heavy riders?
I am especially interested in how it COMPARES, to the factory subframe.

Heat Issue: Was there any change? (good or bad).

Installation: Was any modification of the subframe, (or rest of the bike), necessary?

Exhaust Mounting: For those with under-tail exhausts, did the carbon-subframe mount the exhaust properly, and withstand the stress of street and track use, while the exhaust was hanging from it?

Long-Term Durability: Any cracks? Has the subframe weakened, or become, "flexy"?

Thank you, to all who contribute.

I have the 1199sl I bought used. It now has about 1600 miles on it with no issues so far. I'm 190lbs.

Cant tell any difference in heat or feel vs my old 1199s although the sl is so much lighter its crazy
