I don't think those pipes would work very well. You need the pipe to create back pressure for it to run right. With two big stingers I think it would make crappy power.

What engine is it for?


I would suggest like a JP1 for Bottom power or a JP2 if you want top end.

I just saw one of these pipes on a buggy last week, and they make a crap load of power!! The guy racing would clear jumps with ease, and he didn't even need run-up space. The sound is killer too!!

Those pipes have a moving part in them... not legal for most racing classes... keep that in mind.

They copied CVEC, infringing on the patent.

It is not ROAR / IFMAR legal.

You must keep it clean inside. If you don't, the piston will stick, causing tuning issues.
