    By law, you will be required to inform DVLA of the new engine code number of your fresh engine, quite a hefty fine can be imposed if not done but I've never personally heard of anyone being done.Also,when you sell the car, if the potential buyer checks the engine number and finds that it does not match the number on your V5 they are likely to walk away without buying your car, I'm pretty sure i would!

    Regarding replacement exhausts, yes it may well be more cost effective to upgrade up a performance version, but also get quotes from independant garages/tyre fitters etc to get prices on direct replacement parts,surely cheaper than main dealer.
