Default Pipes, headers. Everything needed to no!

Iv looked high and low to find a thread that tells what different pipes do to change how an engine runs thrueout it's power band and since there's a very wide selection available I want to no about different pipes and how they will increase/decrease runtime, power or where they transfer power/torque from low/mid/top of the power band.

So far I have these pipes and this is my feel I have for them:

os 2050=good low end to mid but runs out on top.
os 2060=lil less bottom more top, good for a wide openor slippery track.
ae 2035= so much bottom and good runtime but harder to tune.
orion 2066=ok bottom great top good runtime.
orion 2013=all bottom end and wakes up and made for any sirio engine.
Jp1=fuel hog bottom end.
Jp2=fuel hog top end.
Jp3=fuel hop mid end.


I would like to add to this list so if u guys would like to share with me and all the people that need direction on there next pipe, post what u have and like and I will put it down and that way we can have a little guide for what pipe works good with certain engines and changes performance. Thanks!

Pipes/headers, performance change:

Ofna 086 Top end Pipe.

Ofna 053 bottom end pipe, Great all around pipe.

Ofna 063 Mid pipe.

RB 2045 pipe.This pipe is an excellent choice to help boost the low end and midrange power on 5 port and 7 port Nitro engines. This pipe offers average fuel economy and works best on short to medium size layouts when used with a 98mm manifold. For more midrange and top end power use the RB 92mm manifold. -thenova70ss

Long header will make the bottom end more alive, a short header will add tot he top end.

I have the trinity bad boy pipe in my box. It saw 3 laps and that was it. I did not like it on the GRP I was running, it was a dog, but I do know guys who run them and love them, great runtime is the biggest advantage.

Can anyone elaborate a little more on the differences between the Jammin pipes, and what EFRA/numbered pipes they correspond to?

The EFRA number's do not correspond to any of the number's on any of the Ofna pipes and the best i can tell the EFRA number's are just number's given to the pipe's Like Ofna has given number's to the JP pipes and the Ofna 053 and up pipes.

But i could be Wrong some one my know more about the EFRA Pipes.

EFRA numbes are given to pipes that are to be run in europe under EFRA sanctioned meetings. All manufacturers will send a new pipe for an homoligation test so they can be checked for legality in size noise etc, at the end they will be given an efra number. The good things is EFRA, ROAR & FEMCA are slowly coming into line with each other.
For example to numbering Jammin part number is JP4 EFRA 2062, AE/TTR part no is some 9000 figure EFRA 2035. RB yep 2045 is EFRA.
Some manufacturers use the EFRA number as its regognised number & often just a racers id of a pipe, ie 2035 & 2045.
