I think the 2050 is a great all aroung pipe for top and bottom, I think the 9886 is a top end pipe, but I may have it backwards it may be a low end

The P5 has tons of low-end, so if your track is pretty big I would go with the 086 with waller adapter. I dont like the 086 its a fuel pig.

My friend went from an RB 86 (I believe) with his SBK01 to the Jammin pipe (the one with the really beefy stinger that'll never break off or dent..lol), and his buggy FLIES now. It's way faster than before. Amazed both of us...Better on the top end and the bottom end.

Im currently running an OFNA 063 pipe that came with my 9.5 MBX pro and it has INCREDIBLE bottom end.I am looking for a pipe to smooth out the power band and rev a little higher on the top.But I dont want a fuel hog either.

Try the 053 then its a mid-range pipe and is good on gas, I havent tryed the JP-1 pipe yet (big stinger) but my friend said it has awesome top and is good on gas.

i was running the 053 pipe w/o the power adaptor & w/ the power adaptor, and i think the bottom was good enough even w/o it. however, when i put on my 086 pipe w/ power adaptor, i got the top end i was looking for... but now when i hit the triple, i had to hit right on or i'd short it by a scooch. i've heard some good things from the jammin' pipe, i'm gonna give that a try next.

btw, this was @ revelation, which is kind of a small track, but has one long triple. for kz, i think the 086 w/ waller would be a good choice.

i do like my p-5 (it's my 1st novarossi, the rest are rb's), but i think my ws72 has a little more @ the top. i haven't gotten a chance to test, maybe next week.
