The MSR(Mugen) 1005 is suppose to be the best pipe for a P-5. I have ran a 053, JP-2 and a 086 on a P-5 and all of them made really good power.

I run a Collari B-7 in my 8ight and i use a 086 on it, it is really strong, I have also used a JP-2 on it but it didn't the power, compared to the 086.

Did anyone read the "tuned pipe tech" article CAR ACTION vol 21 NOV 2006. It is a general break down of how the wrong pipe can rob power , and how tuned pipe works to "supercharge" combustion chamber.

I think this is helpfull knowing this when getting a pipe a jp2 or other well known pipes. they maybe good on some motors but not all because the differant Port timing motors have.

the best way to find out may be too trade pipes with people at the track test 5or6 with your motor and see.

Hey Tex,
If you haven't looked at the new RB pipes you should..
The 2020 has a shorter stinger and sounds like a 50cc engine...
The newest 2045 has a very stout stinger, twice as thick as previous pipes, if you ask me...
I haven't had a single issue with anyone hitting the stinger and taking any damage.
Hope that puts a little faith back in a great pipe manufacture.

By the way guys I am selling my OS 2050 pipe, My almost brand new Ofna 086 pipe with re-enforced stinger and a well used but not messed up Jp1 pipe.

Check the for sale thread or PM me...
Priced to move..

I had never really thought of carbon-fiber pipes as anything more than aesthetically-pleasing (and that's the only reason I picked one up), but based on the graph on Vantage's site, there actually seems to be a performance advantage


Whether this actually holds true on the track is quite a different matter, but it makes for an interesting comparison nonetheless.
