I am running a JP-4 right now and it seems to be liking it. I have a JP-3, but have not tested that one.

I haven't heard much about the latest RB engines but for every S7/WS7 up until this year, the one and only Jammin pipe to run was the JP-1. Everything else caused the engine to be weaker on the bottom end. The new ones might be different but the Jp-1 is probably the safest bet given RB's offerings up to this point.

Amen. Thats what I've found with the previous generation RBs. If you don't run an RB specific pipe the JP-1 is the best bet.

Just look at the RB pipes and compare them to the JP line. You'll see volume-wise they are closer to the JP-1....

Just my .02, I use to run nothing but rb 7 port engines and I tried the jp 1-2-3 pipes and always came back to the jp2. The 1 had great bottom but I felt went flat every where else. The jp3 is just massive bottom to mid power even though it is rated as a high end pipe, and I also felt that it falls off on top a bit and consumes more fuel. The jp2 is a good compromise of top and low end power while I felt had the bust fuel economy. Good luck.

I bought a WS7 and a JP-4 on december last year and I didn't like it, the bottom end was terrible, then I switched to a JP-1 and it was sooo much better, that's the only JP pipe I would recommend for this engine.

I've had great luck with the JP-3 on tracks with long straights and I've liked the Jp-1 for tighter tracks with my RB engines.

Thats why with stock engines, I tend to run the manufacturers pipe. Always seems to run a bit better, whether its power or running temps. So, I run my GRPs with the GRP pipe, RBs with the RB pipe, etc....

However, when it comes to modified engines, i find that the JP line works better than the manufacturer's pipes....

You have to take into consideration the track type also. I run a RB 728 with a 14t CB and a JP-3. Works great through the whole power band. A 13t CB wound me out too soon.
