Mesa SOB: No Limit?

Mesa SOB: No Limit?
My Mesa SOB has the limit control which I don’t tend to use much anymore as it imparts a somewhat gritty sound to the distortion to my ear. Apart from the obvious hassle of rebuilding the phase splitter in an amp with a PCB, is there any reason I couldn’t rebuild as a more stock kind of Fender driver? Would it improve things tone wise? The amp has no NFB loop in the output stage. If rebuilding it, would it be better to add it or just leave it out? Would the output transformer be specifically designed to operate without NFB?
