To get the most power, run the 9886 pipe. For smoother power band, the 9901. The JP-3 works great, but I think a JP-4 is more like a 9901. Can't really say though, I haven't got my hands on a JP-4 yet.

Im using the Conical Medium header from JP with the 2015 pipe, also from JP, This is an onroad pipe but I have found that run time is great, dont loose bottom end and have a great top, I feel the engine very smooth with this combo. I think that the combination is great.

It also depend of the track, but I would use NV base tune pipe for JP engines.

Im from Lima PERU, and got my engine from JP Products (France).
BTW JP is a great guy
