Default A question of pipes?

I have an OS Speed which i find to be an awesome motor with an insane top end! However i'm finding that i want a little bit more bottom end and mid range?

I have the Speed 2060 pipe currently... What other pipes have others tried that would provide more low end punch without loosing too much top end?

Oh and i'm currently using a Nosram #7 plug (all that's available locally) Would running a different plug also help?

O.S. 2050 pipe is good also.

Do yourself a favor and use an O.S. P3 Plug.

Try running a long header with the 2060 pipe.

The guy at my LHS told me that the speed likes the P4 and the P3 is more for a V-spec.... You guys dissagree?

Where can i get a 2050 from? i heard that OS don't make them anymore?

I have been a long time 2050 fan (2yrs+) recently I tried a JP4 for a bigger track we went to and think I've found my new all around pipe.... loads more topend, no sacrifice in runtime or bottom end. Plus the chrome finish is trick and durable
