Default Good pipe for low end

I just purchased a Mugen MBX-4 XR that came with an RB C4 engine in it. I have to say that it is a very fast engine, unfortunately, the local track I go to is kinda small and I need some low end. So my question is, which one piece pipe will get me more low end?
Also, once this engine dies (and who knows when since i got it used), i plan to swap engines rather than doing a rebuild. I was suggested a L. Collari engine by someone at my local shop and was wondering if anyone else has any experiences with these. The price is about $100 less than another RB or an OS. Or maybe just some other suggestions on decent engines that dont break the bank

The Pipe for the RC10GT is a good low end pipe with the one without the hanger end being a bit better than the newer one as far as bottom end.

Uhh, no comment.

Anyway. I use a RB 063 pipe, its a great pipe. I belive ofna offers a really cheap version of the same pipe for like 50 bucks, I'd go for it. Its called the ofna 063, so.

The Ofna 063 is a great pipe, I couldnt tell any diffrence from my RB 063. The 063 is low end, 086 is top-end and the 053 is mid-range.

Aww crap,
My first thought was, well aren't we a bunch of @%#$&^&*,
But then I actually read the post and, uh, noticed the uh, 1/8th scale reference and realized I'm the @%#$&^&*.
Sorry guys,
Kiiski

today i was at the LHS and saw a RD Logics one piece 1/8 scale pipe. The guy there said it was good for mid-range. Anyone use this one and if so what gains did you see? Is it worth getting over an Ofna 063?
