You'll get many different answers, driving styles different, tracks are different. I have tested many pipes, alot of the ones mentioned.

I only keep two pipes in my box now, the 2035 and the 2039. Lately I have really liked the 2039. Still has plenty of bottom end but it runs stronger on top end. Mileage on the two are about the same.

I tested the re-11 (OS pipes are too rich for my blood, supposed to be the same as a 2050). In a back to back test, same day same track, all within 20 minutes, the re-11 ran 15 degrees hotter and got 25 secs less run time than the 2035, and it didn't have as much bottom or mid range, and I didn't notice any significant gains on top either. And yes, I retuned for the pipe, not just change it and run.

the 2035 is available from AE or Thunder Tiger. The 2039 is only available from Thunder Tiger. Same header for each.

I agree with brandon on this I ran the O.S. 2060 & 2050 (got both used for under half price far from rich myself lol ) and the 2035, i have not tried the 2039. The 2035 was better than the o.s. pipes for power and mileage as brandon stated. The only thing with the 2035 was it was super quiet which didnt bother me but i did get the whole "that thing just doesnt look that fast down the straightaway like my speed blah blah blah" Folks just cause its loud doesnt mean its fast. My lap times and my ability to run with other engines including speed's and c6's was never a issue. AE pipes for this engine for sure hope this helps

For buggy, i like the GRP tuned 2053 pipe. I am getting 9 minutes with the 6mm insert, and i have a heavy finger. I got 8:20 seconds of runtime with this pipe, running so rich, after a 15 minute main, i temped at 208

For truggy, i like the AE 2035 pipe. I am getting around 8:40, with a 7mm insert, and a heavy finger.
