OS 2060 is probably the best matched pipe for the Speed motors.

The Eb Mods 2041 will give you a much broader mid-range, and just an overall better power band.. The JP-3 will be more aggressive on the bottom, but have a flat spot across the mid-range.. As you already noticed the 2041 will also produce better run times. Overall I would say the 2041, and the 2060 are the best 2 pipes. Are you looking for more power?

i found the jp3 to be a little soft on the top end on a speed, had great bottom. i have seen the 2041 on a few guys cars at the track and they look really strong bottom and top on the speed, i liked the jp3 on a truggy when i was running the speeds, i preffered the 2060 most of the time on buggies

i tried the 2050 on a speed it really didnt seem to work well at all, had to really lean it down to get any power with it

That's because you want the 2060 for the speed and 2050 for the V-spec...

Personally I would say you want neither engine..Buy a Ninja JX for $150 cheaper... smoother, more powerful, much more reliable, and did i mention cheaper!
Ninja JX With a 2060/2042 pipe W/ L header, P4 plug...DIALED!

The 2041 shouldn't feel soft at all on the bottom... What carb insert are you using? What Plug? If you want more power, i can get you a EB Head Button, and you'll make more power across the whole power-band, increasing efficiency, equaling better run time

IMO the EB pipe produces a little more power with the same feel as a 2060 but got just a hair less mileage which is probably just a by product of producing more power.

I went back to the 2060 though just because the OS pipes are so incredibly durable. My 2060 is a year old and has been in my car almost the entire time and I just periodically pull it clean it and polish it back up. It looks as good as new still.

I have a 2050 in my box that is 2 or 3 years old same story looks like new still. When I tried the 2050 on the Speed I was unimpressed it seems to work better on the V-Spec.

Now I have the JX Ninja and run the 2060. I have another Ninja as a back-up and I think when the time comes I am going to run it with the 2050 pipe as I have a friend who uses that combo and it looks like his car has noticeably more bottom end with no lack in top end. Its going to be a little while till I get to try that combo though since winter hasnt ended here yet.

Don't forget this guy already has the speed and is looking for a good pipe/header combo.

But yes the Ninja is sweeeet.

You can get em on ebay for $50 + like $10 shipping. Thats where I got mine. Very nice pipe and for the price you can't beat it as the 2060 is like $170. I run the eb pipe or a jp-3 on my v-spec in my truggy. I am tempted to try the new losi re11 which appears to be a more durable, less expensive os 2050. I just can't justify spending $170 for the 2060.

Here is the ebay link. this is the guy I got mine from. he had like 60 when I got mine a few months ago.
