Default JP FX-21N engine - buggy or truggy?

Hey folks. I have a JP FX-21N engine with a JP3 pipe

Would you say it is more a buggy engine or truggy?

JP calls it buggy engine, but I wanted real world input

Would it lag too much in an 8ight-t?

What FX-21 engine? There's 5 & 8 port engines in buggy class, which I assume you have. Black version or stock, turbo & standard are the other options.

basically a p5x and no you will not be disappointed in a truggy

you might be disappointed w/ the performance of that pipe on that engine though try a 053 version pipe w/ short square header or an 086 pie w/ medium round header . two great pipes to have in your pitbox

Thanks. You don't think I'll kill off the top end with those pipes? I have an 086 on a picco .28, I thought JP3 would be good to let the upper end breathe

I have one of them as well!
So the JP-3 isnt a good choice?
I was thinking it was... I wonder if my RB 2045 would be any better?
I just may have to drop the cash for the 053 if thats a good combination...
I am wanting a smoothe power band. So thats why I got the B5-N.

Thanks!

On the topic of JPs, what gasket do you all use to get a good seal? Would the pink ofna .21 work? It fits the motor good, but isn't as tight as I would like it with the exhaust on

the one currently in it is a novarossi original
