Default !! READ !! All RB C6 owners. i need your input

I have a CEO MODS RB C6. I need pipe info. I normally run vspecs but got this motor in on trade. I have the fowling pipes to use.
JP2
JP3
OS 2050
OS 2060

What are your thoughts? I'm not buying a new pipe just for this motor so please don't tell me what pipe to go out and buy.
Thanks Guys

use a 9883

oops 9853 !

the other pipes will sap the life out of the motor..... if your using it in a buggy and want to de-tune it the RB 2045 works well......but if you want the motor to open up to its full potential the 9953 is the pipe to use...

Personally, and I think that most would with the matching pipe would agree, the 2045 pipe would work the best with the engine.

Sorry but the 2045 & 2020 work the best on my C6. Also I get more than 12 mins with the 2045 on a regulation tank with a 6.5 ventury.

I have had the standard C6 and still have a RBMods Extreme mod version............. a cheap 053 makes these motors rip.........had a $$$$$ 2045 and sold it, they were dogs with it.

S'up Super.........

in most race conditions my 2045 gave me 8 min + run time and when i set my throttle to 90% or higher i could still run with about anything down the straights. thing is though about any decent engine can be tuned to be as fast as the top engines. i wouldnt tune for that i would tune for a solid driveable power band

on the4 X-Dyno the RB C6 on the 2045 made 1.15 HP with a very weak power curve.... withthe 9853 the motor has a broad flat power curve and makes 1.45 hp...the TQ was also higher across the board with the 9853........... the RB 2045 is EFRA legal..so its a noise restriction pipe...a 9853 is not EFRA legal, and its designed for engine output, not noise restriction......I am sure the 2045 works fine, but its definitely not the most suted pipe to make the most output.... its obviously a pretty restrictive pipe.....

Well, I did miss that..

Why don't you go out and try all the pipes that you have then? My guess is that the JP2 or JP3 will be better than the OS pipes on the RB.

i dont care too much what a dyno says the way the car drives and the way that the power gets used by the driver means alot more. very rarely from what i see does the fastest engine wins races anyway.

The fastest driver always wins the races..wether he runs a RBC6 or a SH .21, driving skill is what wins the races.... a dyno is just a measuring tool that allows you to visibly see the output and powerband of engine and pipe combinations.... Its up to the driver to decide on the power output they are looking for to match their style and track conditions........But if someone is winning races with a RB C6 2045 combo, they will also win with a C6 9853 combo, they will just notice a little more power on tap..there wasn't a huge difference, the 9853 doesn't take anything away from the C6 over the 2045.

at least you are honest in how you evaluate them..on most other boards i argue this all i get in return is "numbers don't lie" which might be true but the never tell the whole truth either lol
