The OS 2060 was designed for the v-spec.

JP-3 is a very good pipe for the v-spec. Another good option is the OS 2050/Losi RE11. You can get the RE11 for $65. The 2050 is actually the reccomended pipe for the standard v-spec. The losi pipe is a copy of the OS and IMO is better quality at a much better price. The 2060 is also a very good option. It was really designed for the speed engine, but runs very well on the v-spec too. It will be smoother than the others. Also if you can find one the EB mods 2041 is an awesome pipe for the v-spec. I believe reckward tuning also sells a 2041. The 053 is also a decent pipe for the v-spec, though IMO not on the same preformance level as the others. It is a very smooth pipe and gets good runtime, but the others will make more power.

Get the 2050 or 2060. If it is in your budget. Sorry while people are having good luck with the losi pipes it is just a cheap imitation in my eyes.

The OS 2060 works pretty good. OS 2050 is the cats ass on regular v spec. I have both. I keep the 2060 on the speed only. Can't comment on the losi pipes cuz i just don't know how well they work.

Thanks for the quick responses guys. I meant i have a jp2 pipe. Sorry guys :/. Im getting about 10-12 minutes of runtime which is pretty good IMO. Very good temps, lots of top-end, and good pipe. I would just rather have a pipe that is a better fit for the v-spec.

Ive heard tons of good things from the RE11 as its pretty much the replica for the 2050, just cheaper!

I am reading all around that the RE-11 is a 2050 copy but has anyone actually run it? It looks very similar but it's not exactly the same, the shape is slightly different.

JP-2 works pretty well on the V-spec but both the JP-3 and 2050 are better.

I've been running the RE11 for a while now and it makes good power all around. The pipe is really durable and doesn't look like crap after a few runs. I've never tried the 2050 so I can't compare both of them.

The losi pipe is the exact same thing as the OS, just without the rediculous OS price tag. Actually should hold up better than an OS pipe being that it has a reinforced stinger and is hard coated!

Same pipe as the 2050! Just a much better value!

The 2042 is the same as the OS 2060.
