I wouldn't run a JP pipe on an RB. It's well documented they make RB's run hotter. Check the RB USA site as Roddy himself. Had that experience with a JP1 on my 1st RB. Went to a 2045 and it ran really great and alot cooler.

Well I do and have plenty of power and perfect temps. So i guess it all depends on the motor and or user.

on my s5 l2g with turbo plug&086 pipe i get 11 minutes easy at about 210. I just cant believe how smooth the power is compared to say a snappy vspec. it takes some getting used to. the jp1 you guys run must eat a minute plus off your runtime. from experience on rb&nova 21s when broke in with a jp1 they will run at about 240 with bullet acceleration a little too much punch for my liking knowing it deprives runtime..but if it gets a good spot in a 7 minute heat it dont really matter..on my 3port rb broke in w/jp1 and ran that way for a gallon snappy bottom end and ok top ran at 240 or lower. with same tune 10 minutes later in same day with jp3 went from 8 minute runtimes to 7 and ran 260+ and ran poor..i think everybody has different experiences with different engines and so on and that might make one thing or the other different
