    the
    lexmaul manifold exhaust manifold is ok it will only give about 5 to 15bhp at max for the £400 price but the power will be at the top of the rev range

    if you want a lot of power on the cheap buy a turbo coupe its easy an has 200bhp to start with

    dbilas inlet is probably the way to go, then lexmaul, then some fast road cams.

    i sell cams for your engine, 200 reprofiled, 280 outright (inc pnp).

    thats a great price! pity its only 45mm like the rest of the system, but i suspect it can be opened out with a grinder.
