Default Stock pipe w/ big block

Has anyone used the factory pipe with a big block? If so, were any mods to the pipe needed?

umm if your going to spend all the money to upgrade your truck to a big block why are you going to leave a stock exhaust on? bad idea if you ask me.

and what truck are you doing the conversion too?

It's a revo. I didn't spend money on the engine, it is an old C5 I had laying around from my 1/8 onroad. The truck is just a basher. I realize the stock pipe is not the best pipe for my motor, but a 1/8 onroad pipe is too long for a clean, dependable installation, so I just thought I would ask. Any other affordable pipe header combo suggestions? Nate

well when you do a big block you cant just put the motor in and call it good. you have to replace about everything. most the time a differnt chassis, you need to upgrade your drive shafts and diffs. theres a lot more that goes into a big block than a engine.

There are many people who race Revo big blocks with no diff or tranny upgrades, so I will take my chances bashing and running up and down the street. I understand the whole drivetrain issue. I've been racing 1/8 onroad for a few years now and have a pretty good grasp of what is required. I asked a simple question and I am looking for a simple answer. I appreciate your input. Nate

I thought that the kit for bigblock conversion had exhaust included?
