Thoughts on an eisenmann race exhaust ? 76mm tips. Can get one at a good price just needs one of the tips replacing, which eisenmann do sell so would just need to get it welded on ?

Saw this backbox for sale too... considered it but decided against. Hope you can bring it back to its original glory, as they sound immense

It's easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission! Buy it and then deal with the consequences

No you can get aftermarket intakes. Something I really want but very expensive.

I would put money towards an intake before exhaust, if you can source a csl one, expect to pay around £2k maybe £3k, CSL is one of the best sounding engines about.
