Default Tuned Pipe question For OS VZ-B Vspec motor

I'm running this old SW 053 pipe on my OS Vspec engine and was wondering if someone could tell me what kind of pipe I have in terms low, mid, or high-end performance. I just got into the hobby a few months ago and now after have practiced may start racing. The track is oval and somewhat large but dusty yet fast. I need a pipe mid to high end. This may already be good enough pipe and looks similar to the T-2050 with its comparable not so smooth curve in the header.
Its hard for me to know if I already have the right pipe because I never had anything to compare it to. It seem to now have very strong mid range.

Thank you. Wish I'd asked 2 hours ago. Couldn't find an answer. Is there a pipe that you'd suggest that's closer to the mid-high to high end. I don't care much about sacrificing bottom end because its hard to not spin like crazy coming off as it is.

2050/2060 are the best for v-spec/speed line.

pinoy is right, jp3 is good for raw power but will suffer a little bit of runtime than the other two he suggested, perfect for truggy !!
