Default OS 2050 pipe

If this is thought of as one of the best pipes made for OS motors. Why isn't it made anymore? Or am I wrong?

I think the 2060 replaced it? Not sure. Can anyone agree with me that the JP3 seems to be a better pipe? I have a 2050 but it just seems My JP3 makes better power.

I like the 2050 better,it just suits the way I like my power to build.I did not like my v-spec at all till I got a 2050 pipe.Usually I use the JP-3 on all my other motors even the old ninja but didnt feel comfortable with what it did to the v-spec not to mention the JP-3 is a very thirsty pipe on any motor.

I think you can get the 2050 still but they call it the pavadis pipe now or something not exactly sure.I'll ask him next time he shows at our track or better yet e-mail him & ask.

Interesting thing is I couldnt make the 2050 work with my other brand motors very well at all.

as far as im aware the 2050 was better for low mid range and the 2060 had a much smoother power band, both will be illegal for sanctioned racing next year and os will have a new pipe out, the part number is already out but not seen it yet.

I can't agree at all. I thought my V-Spec felt like a different engine with the 2050 pipe on it. The OS pipe had much more low and mid and was way better on fuel than it was with the JP-3. The 2050 makes it a little harder to control though. I would have like to try the 2060 to see if it did smooth out the abrubt powerband of the 2050.
