Default Pipe for new engine

I am going to buy the new O.S. .28 truggy motor and was wondering what pipes you guys run on .28's. I was thinking about a JP-3, but would like some feedback or opinions. Thanks.

On 28's the JP2 or JP3 work great. JP2 is a high end. JP3 is a low/High pipe. 28 have enough torque so a high end pipe works great. Last year, I found out the hard way. I had a JP1 on my 728 and I had great low to mid, but had no high. I swapped to the JP2 and everything was there! Life is good and I could run the entire powerband of that motor. My 928 runs great with the JP2. JP1's work great on 21's.

If you can get a matched manufactuers pipe, I would recomend that.

Yes that is the correct engine. I was thinking about the JP-2 for the same reason mentioned above about the torque. I had a v-spec in my buggy and since it had so much bottom end I used the JP-2 to keep the bottom end the same and increase the top end. It worked great with the v-spec and had a ton of power all across the board. I was thinking the same would hold true with the .28. It should have a ton of bottom end and need a little help on the top end. Any other suggestions? One sight I read was a statement from O.S. that says the Mark Pavidis edition pipe is the perfect choice but I can't find it anywhere.

I think Mark uses the OS 2060 tuned pipe. Fantastic pipe with the V Spec
