Most of it is trial and error, every pipe is different and performs differently on various engines. Some are good down low, some up high, and some are good alrounders. You can then vary the header length to change the charactoristics of the pipe. Short gives you more power up high and long gives more torque down low.

Ask around to see what most people are running on your particular engine and start with that pipe. Then you can play around from there.

Popular pipes that i know of are:
JP1,
JP2,
JP3,
JP4 (maybe),
RB Concept 2045,
OS 2050 (no longer available?),
OS 2060
LRP 2063

Each of these will perform differently but i'm not familiar with all of them. A good way to try these is ask around you're club and see if you can borrow others un-used pipes so you can see which you like and then buy your own!
