Default JP Pipe

JP-2 or JP-3? Which is better in terms of price, performance and fuel consumption? I'll be hooking it on my LRP Z.28R spec 3.

I would go with the JP-2. It is more of a top end pipe and thats what you want because the LRP has tons of bottom!

I bet you know exactly what pipe to get now…

Anyway I will cast my vote for the JP-3. I have one on my LRP .28 with no complaints.

can you elaborate on that a little?

so jammin/ofna says jp1 = low end , jp2 = top end, jp3 = both, but i really don't get if 1 chamber is low and 2 chambers is high, how is 3 chambers low and high end? just doesn't make sense to me, but then again i'm far from an expert on exhaust design.

Chris3g - I'm far from an exhaust design specialist myself, but I think the shape of the chambers has more to do with it than anything.

From my own personal experience, the JP-1 makes the most power overall of the JP pipes.

Or you could get into the insane category of pipes, and get a Werks 2013 pipe

It really depends on your local track layout. If your track has long straights go with the JP-2. JP-3 is suppose to give both top and bottom end but from personal experience the JP-1 is the best. I don't need straight away speed as much as I need torque in order to get through the infield. I think in order to be get consistent lap times the infield is key.

I have personal experience with all three pipes.

if you have lots of torque you can gear it higher anyway.

I ran my LRP with a JP-3 and it was full of power on both the bottom and top. It seemed to pull all the way down the long straight.
I did not try it with any other pipe, so I don't have much to compare my setup to.
