Ease up on it a little. Please keep in mind how small the series was when Carter, et al put the spec exhaust rule in place. It closed a massive rules gap. It was an imperfect fix, but given the unit volume that could have been expected at the time, Paul gave a fair deal.
I’m sure someone (cough Tower *cough) could set up a website in the time it takes me to type this post, but Paul ain’t shipping Bimmerworld-type volumes.
Yes, fitment is a little wonky. Yes, you could build it cheaper yourself.
But yes, having a spec exhaust was and is appealing to many in a spec series. And yes, for a few dozen units a year, it’s a fair deal.
Besides, if we got rid of all the Luddites who don’t have websites, we’d have to get rid of Patton. And he’s pretty entertaining.
