Default OS 2060 / Ninja 2042 pipe

A lot of times it has been asked what pipes goes well with XXX engine,
But now I'm gonna ask the other way round..

What engines performs well with the OS 2060 and Ninja 2042 pipe?
Reason is that I'm in the market for a new engine but I have 2 sets of the Ninja 2042..
Been running a V-Spec and the JX and now I'm looking to try other engines.

I'm looking at the Reedy motor, RB Rally 9, or the Team Orion ABI..
Any other recommendations?

Btw I have a JP B5 that is being rebuild, would the Ninja pipe be a good match for the JP?

Thanks in advance guys!

I have both pipes and they work very well on speed engines. I put one on a grp and the top end was insane. I'm getting a new engine soon that I want to try diff pipes on I'll let you know.

I have ran the 2060 on the V-spec, ninja and speed. Works very well. i prefered the 2050 at times though.

I have never ran the Reedy motor, but have heard of people running that pipe.

Mont runtime is the OS 2060, BTW its the exact same pipe as the Mugen 2042, I have them both and they are identical. I put a 2050 on my truggy this weekend and it gor 2 mins less on the track I was on from last week with a 2060. The track is small so runtimes are usually up. 2060 gets better runtime no questions.

I agree that they are the same. As far as comparing things from a week ago, its nitro, way to many varible to do a proper comparison. Maybe if you ran them back to back, but conditions change over the course of the day, let alone a week.

But yes Frank, I agree that the 2060 is better for milage. I might say that it could be as much as a minute or so, but 2 minutes might be a bit high. Thats atleast 20% or more.

But you could change some of this based on the header.

Thanks i wanted to know it the mugen 2042 was the same as a os 2060 the os pipe is pretty high. What header should i buy for a mugen 2042 pipe i want the best runtime the motor already has great power. Thanks everyone for your fast info

Are you running a buggy or truggy. If it's a buggy then the mugen "c" shaped header. In a truggy the "L" shaped header.

I have never been able to really prove or even find any facts about how the shape affects the power curve. Not saying that it is not there, just havn't seen it. I have many shapes of headers, but usually go by over-all length to use on the basis for tuning

Not really. That is a strange header shape. I have only seen that shape from RB. This shape would be what most ppl consider an "L" shape header

You tried the 2060/2042 pipe on a GRP engine, which engine was that? The tuned one?
Or you meant that you put the Speed on a GRP pipe??
Sorry for the confusion..

Anyway pls update if you're gonna try another engine with the 2060/2042 pipe.
Tks!

Speedyrob,
Based on what Savoya was running at the Worlds, I'd think that most runtime with the Ninja JX wld be the old Ninja FLS pipe made by GRP..
OS 2050 has the worst runtime, very punchy powerband.
2060/2042 compromise bet power (still great and smoother power) and runtime but I know some are easily getting 9-9.30mins with the JX..

Anyway back to the topic again..

What engines, other than the V-Spec or the Speed or the Ninja, would work well with the 2060/2042 pipes?

Any conspiracy theories will be accepted!
