Default BEST PIPE FOR RB

I'm looking for the best pipe for RB WS7 & S7 to get the best fuel economy ?
The WS7 is in a Buggy so it needs smooth acceleration and the S7 is in a Truggy so it needs Torque but both need the best fuel economy

Personally, I've found that the RB line of pipes works best with RB engines. They tend to run cooler and make better, smoother power with their own pipes.

The next best thing are pipes designed to give better low-end....

Lots of guys like the Jammin JP1 for both of those engines. RB's pipes probably run the best but they are delicate and pricey. JP1's are cheap and strong.

Well, if you want the most fuel mileage you can get I suspect the new 3xxx numbered pipes will give you the most. I haven't tried them myself but they should get better mileage at the expense of some top end.

The 2035 pipe is really good with the s7/ws7. AE makes a black non stick version, but the TT branded pipe is $47 and comes with the header.

If you can get hold of one to try , the nova 9901 runs real well on a Ws7III , the motor we ran it on was a modded S7III , considering the on/off driving style of the owner fuel economy was over 8 mins...

An S7 and a JP1 is a great combination.

The RB 2045 works awesome for me with a C6
I haven't even wanted to try anything else...

I have run a 2045 on my C6... but if you really want to see what that motor has install a 086(even 053 is wicked) tuned pipe, makes the motor come alive, way more torque,HP and RPM then the 2045...you will think you have a different motor !!! the 2045 is a very restrictive pipe that greatly reduces the C6's power output...

Buggy: Run the 2045, the restriction of this pipe does help calm the power band down and increase runtime.

Truggy: 086, 053... yes! Huge power! The only down side is you need ear plugs!

The C6 is bad arse!

Not outside the US anymore. I think ROAR still allows them but not sure.
