    next year will be getting one of the above with a mate as a project car

    what are the best tuning options?

    it will be stripped out, and that will be the first job

    who are good for things such as decats and exhaust systems?

    i've read cone filters dont give much improvement on these engines over the standard air box...

    doubtful that we have cash to spend on engine internals btw...
    unless ported/flowed head is cheapish...?

    I'd class an M50 engine as cheapish, especially considering the cost of other tuning options.

    who makes a good straight through exhaust for the 320?

    or where can you pick up a cheapish one?
