the 2013 is my favorite pipe to use. A little thin metal but the sound is awsome. Wakes up any sirio based engine

I too love the unique sound that the sirio 2013 makes. It sounds like no other pipe that I have ever ran.


I'm wondering what non sirio based engines would run well with the 2013?

i recently bought a Werks B3 Team just to try cause it was a killer deal. I must say that I do love it, even for a 3 port. Break in was hassle free, tunes well, got about a half gallon on it and it is a screamer with Sirio 2013 pipe, loads of bottom end and mid range, and the top end is pretty dang good, not super crazy but more than I expected. I have heard some problems with rear bearing in B3, but none for me so far.

My bro and I have the werks b7 tl pro and all we can say is this motor is sick. We both run the Dynamite 053 pipe and they run good. We plan on trying the 2013 but we heard they are not that durable.

I think you will find the 2013 pipe better than the 053 u are using, also try the sirio or trinity 2056,2057 pipes. I just think you get more useable power out of the sirio based pipes

How is the durability of the 2013. I have heard horror stories of it deforming on light driving.

Keep it off the mud guard and cut 1/4 off the tip,also I belive but not sure the trinity pipe are stronger. Yes they are lighter just be careful how u install it to protect it

A under rated engine. Some people get piss off with it because it,s such a tight pinch when breaking in and tuning changes fast during the first 1/2 gal after that it,s all down hill from there. You can't go wrong with the price.

My buddy blew a 5 port werks the F up last weekend. I think he had a little predetonation going on, but the conrod snapped right across the oil hole for the conrod bushing and it took the piston with it. not a violent blowup so I think the rod had stress cracks from a bad setup. He's a newbie so I have no idea what that motor has been through before, but the piston had a lot of carbon on it like it was in pre detonation. it was quick until it broke though

Predetonation due to too hot of a glow plug or too tight of a compression setting may cause excessive carbon buildup. I just clean my piston top and turbo button with steel wool.

The sure sighn is any pitting on the piston. Don't mistake pitting in the carbon for pitting on the piston (clean it first). If after a wipe with steel wool theres little dot holes then thats detonation.

The first Conrod deosn't last as long in engines that come from the factory with too much pinch. Breakin methods can really make a difference on real tight engine types.

How much fuel was ran thoughthe engine when if poofed.
