Too good a opportunity to pass up and also IMO its the better of the inlets as its decent power band all the way through the rev range rather than being a high burst of power at high revs like the Mantzel and equivilents which needs ideally a rasied rev limit to 7.5K otherwise useless.

Also JR has more money than sense
