Default Pipe selection for Nova. P5XS

Need a good pipe for this motor. We are currently running a Dynamiye 086. It is horrible on fuel mileage. A fellow competitor suggested running a OS2050 which we have and will try this weekend. Any advice you guy's can give would be highly appreciated.

Novarossi 9901, I would try different header types i.e. long smooth flow, conical or short smooth flow manifold to get your desired performance.

Tune the engine differently. That combo should get good mileage and great power.

The 086 is a topend pipe. Try the 9901 or 053. Conical header would kill mileage, but should offer more power with the same pipe. Smooth header would offer the best fuel economy IMO.

+1 on the 9901, run a long header to help maintain bottom but it will still stay smooth and run a NR 5 or 6 plug temp range. We are running the new 3 chamber NR 3004 with a 1005 bent header. The 3005 is the bottom to mid pipe 3 chamber. we run a 808 and it is a great motor pipe set up. the Bullit 1005 is a beast on the P5xs and they include the header in the box. We are also running a 6.5 carb insert. 9 min +

+1 on the 1005! How could I forget, that thing is an animal on the P5XS! It's been a while since I used that pipe so I can't tell you how the run time is with it. I'm using the 9901 pipe with a long smooth flow header in my buggy and I'm getting at least 8.5 minutes playing it on the safe side.

I used a JP3 last weekend on my p5xs, it seemed to have good power, and it was getting at least 7 min a tank. I pitted with 7min left to go in to in the A-main and had just a little fuel left in the tank. Probably could go 7.5 to 8. That is with the stock 8mm carb.

what is the general consensus of the jp3 with a p5xs, last weekend was my first race in 3 years so I don't have much to compare it to.

The jp3 is a good all around pipe on most motors, it has a good hit on bottom and decent top on the novas, the 2060 is pretty smooth on bottom but has more top end pull than the jp3, the jp line of pipes normally get less runtime compared to other pipes but do make good power, the P5's are capable of 9 plus runtimes plug, pipe carb inserts and even chassis brand will affect this, but mostly driver. we run a 6.5mm carb insert and normally pit at 8 or so. ther 9901 with a long header and 5 or 6 plug seem to be the choice for Nova's the 9901 has great tank preassure as well.

the dynamite 086 pipe is the best durable , long lasting pipe for that engine !!!! best all around performance !!!! odo 77 plug , mccoy mc8 . i suggest tune is off . i have a little experience with novarossi engines os 2050 is not a good pair with 5 port novarossi's , dont like jp pipes on nr engines either . 9901 with medium header is good combo , just dont let it dent or performance will go down dramatically

i usually get anywhere from 8 1/2 - 9 min. of runtime with 8mm insert on p5xs
dropping to a 6.5mm insert increases runtime to a lil over 10 min. at 230degrees or so .

you must have a balanced tune though
happy motorin',
