Default O.S. MAX .18 CV-RX and exhaust.

Hi. I am new here. Recently i bought O.S. MAX .18 CV-RX with slide exhaust. The exhuast i want to use, is this from previous force engine. It fits perfect as you can see. I want to ask you if i have to buy a new exhaust system? At high rpm do u think tha will lose power? What manifold,coupler kai tuned pipe i need to buy (prefer liquidrc).

It will work but you won't get full power, bottom/mid/top. try dynamite or ofna

It should work fine, but you will loose power at the top of the RPM range. Find yourself a O.S. manifold and a tuned pipe of your choice, or stick to that one so you can keep the engine tamed and reduce oversteer by capping power. The worst that could happen is you having to route the exhaust as a rear exhaust, but it works nonetheless.
