Default Pipe for Mach 427

I have a slightly used Mach 427 on the way. I decided to save my .21 for larger races and use the 427 as a club engine. For pipes I own an O.S.2050,OFNA 086 and a Werks 2013. The 2013 is my pipe of choice for my GO .21. Any suggestions on what the 427 would like better?

I like the Mach better with a top end pipe. I don't have much experience with pipe testing but this engine makes killer torque and for me it is still too much with high rpm pipes. I'm using four KH shoes and all green springs. Tames the engine down but not much.

I'm also running a JP2 with this engine. I think the engine has plenty of torque doesn't warrant a JP1 or JP3.

I figured the same thing about the torque. It should have plenty,by nature of the engine. All I can do is experiment with the 3 pipes I own. I'll post some feedback here after some back to back tests. Sometime late next week,hopefully.
