That's my hope. The only thing left would be to add some way to directly control an individual cylinder's exhaust pulse and tune it so it properly interacts with another's as to fine tune scavenging. There's an awesome s2000 mid-pipe that is close to this (gernby's) but it's just not quite 100% yet, nor is it being used very widely in other cars.
