Default How bad is a dented pipe (performance wise)?

I was taken out last race meet and because of that my pipe was badly dented (made about 50% thinner than it should be). I managed to get the worst of it out, but I am wondering how much performance I can expect to lose due to the remaining dents. I will post a pic ASAP.

id expect it to reduce your bottom end power a bit.
but it may increase your top end

the motor will require tuning to suit your new shapped pipe
