the pipe might survive... maybe. i dont know if i want to chance it though. if i spend that much money on getting it blasted and repainted, i might as well just get an aftermarket one. i'll just repaint this one myself and if it breaks/rusts out, then i'll get an aftermarket one.
transfers are huge on the thing, take a look at the original cylinder thursday. they are roughly the same port map. after removing the air box and putting on the k&n filter it sounds super mean. its got that throaty intake sound now, which is awesome.
