I have used the freezer method to work a dent out too, but even this must be done carefully. I have seen a cone shift in a pipe. It was a couple of weeks and nearly one more ruined engine before he figured it out. Just pointing out the risk.

I would stick with the Sportwerks 053 or 086 over the Ofna versions. The SW are thinner and should resonate better. The best versions of the 086 and 053 are the hardcoated RB or Novarossi. The hardcoating gives them some extra dent resistence which they badly need and they just seem to make more power than the thicker Ofna and SW pipes.

Default pipes

Check out the NEW line of pipes from "Dynamite" before you buy anything! Very nice looking and tough for a low cost.

is it true that engines with fewer ports generally have better bottom end than engines with more ports?

i have also found that engines with good bottom end, like a torquey big block like my Picco .27, does not need to be paired with a bottom end pipe. i made the unfortunate decision to pair my .27 with a JP-1 (i have a small track with no long straights, so you can understand my logic). sometimes i couldn't keep it from doing wheelies, so i recently bought a JP-2 to help smooth out the power delivery. this is with my truggy.

however, i have an RB S5 (5 ports) in my buggy paired with a JP-1 (also because i run on a short track). i may consider a JP-2 or JP-3 because i also have a good bottom end clutch setting. i'm not saying that my X1 does wheelies, i simply would like some better mid to top end power.

Try an RB2020 with that S5 you have in your buggy & you will sell all those Jammin pipes. For the others that commented on the cost of the NovaRossi pipes, you get what you pay for with the RB & NovaRossi pipes. I have converted many people at my track away from those cheaper pipes & they have all come around to thank me. I current am running the RB 192 header & the RB2020 pipe on all my RB's (S5,S7II,S7europa & WS7) with great luck on short & medium tracks. People at my track are accusing me of "doing internal mods to my motors to make them faster". They are all stock.

Cool

Which pipe do you guys recommend for an XB8 TQ with a Rossi P5 motor..


Also what would you use for pipes for an O.S. RG?? Looking to spend about $150.

Any advice??

Brian, aren't the Dynamite pipes just like the engines? Manufactured by SH, who also makes Sportwerks, and rebadged?
