jp4's work good on vspecs, also the associated 2035,2060. and the jp3 all work really good, i like the 2035 and the 2060 the best out of those for the vspecs and speeds

EB mods 2041 or JP-3, or if you have the cash os 2060.

i'd run a os 2060 pipe. jp pipes suck on fuel mileage or get a grp pipe that is what i run my$.25 in put.

I get 10 mins of run time with v-spec and jp-3 in my truggy. I would say thats pretty good milage. Also if you are talking about the GRP 2053 then I would definately not reccomend that pipe. Those pipes actually limit power. A normal 053 would be much better. I know one of the motor guys(I think maximo) explained why the grp pipe limits power somewhere around here. I believe he said it is designed for european noise regulation laws. So in there attempt to limit noise they also limited power(or something like that). JP-3 might not be the best for it but it certainly is good enough(atleast for me) I have yet to try the EB pipe but that is supposed to be one of the best. Plus they are cheap. I got mine from ebay for like $57 shipped to my door. You can see the dyno graphs of the 2041(EB pipe) on www.ebmods.com It shows better preformance than even the os pipes which are not cheap. Ok i'm done now lol

OS 2050 is best for regular v spec. 2060 works great also. EB Mods 2041 best bargain.

the 2041 is a good choice also, u can get them pretty cheap around 50, they were over a 100 so its a pretty good deal if you get one of those off of ebay

Thanks Lads,

I bought an OS 2060, I treated myself as we are so close to Chrimbo...

I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again

2050 for bottom end and best mileage
2035 for mid to top end
2060 for smooth bottom and good top end

Those are all the pipes Ive tried on mine and how they ran. JP-3 is also suppose to be good but sacrifices a little fuel economy.

I like runnin mine with the 2060 or 2050 pipe with the original 2050 style manifold (shorter one). The main thing for me is to run the Short manifold... I like the feel better. But it depends on ur track/clutch/and driving style.
