Default Please suggest pipe and header for MBX6+NINJA

I searched but got a bunch of conflicting info.

Looking for snappy bottom, long runtime, broad power, and to not break the bank. If a high dollar pipe setup is THAT much better, I'm all over it though.

The MBX6 is narrow, so header choice is important, but I'm not afraid to massage the header a bit if need be.

Heard the JP-3 is good and fast, but runtime suffers..


Would like to hear from people who have tried different pipes and settled on one for good reason.

Thank you!

-Don

the JP3 works very well on that engine, and runtimes are still good, but most like myself like the 2060 in buggy, to make them fit in the 6 better i have seen a few guy';s with this engine pipe set up go to a smaller center diff gear, this allows the room needed for the header and pipe, and the gear change is wicked fast, but you should be fine with a JP or 2060, install a IDRC carb insert, 6 to 7 mm and runtimes will improve also with either pipe. Good luck.

ninja 2042 ( same as os 2060 ) short header. jp pipes have more back pressure = more bottom end,higher motor temp,less run time.

Thumbs up Cheap and possibly the best preformer....

Might give the Losi RE-11 a look. It is a clone of the Old OS 2050. It is a small package that gets great run time and has the low end power the 2060 is lacking. At $65 it is the best bang for the buck anywhere in the pipe world right now.
The header is durable enough to do exactly what you need to do in that car.
Good Luck,
TEX

the jp's pipes headers dont fit unless you bend them, the best choice for the engine is the 2060 or the ninja 2042 they are the same pipe

Around here they are running dynamite 053's and ! They get great fuel mileage too. You ought to try one hard anodized, I think the're like $50 or so. Don't quote me on the price.

I run the 2060 on my Ninja and love it. I have been told however a 053 or 2035 will make even more top end.

I think Mugen sells a special header to bring the pipe closer to the engine for the narrow chassis configuration on the MBX6. Check with Tonysscrews as I believe it was him who posted the info on the 3 different Mugen headers.

Thanks all!

I ordered a Dynomite 053, hard anodised and with the header for $55, I'll just try it!

I'll report back with my findings in a couple weeks once the cars broke in.
