Default can someone tell me the difference btwn these pipes

Hi all,

I am getting back to offroad after two years. I have the following pipes on hand, can some one tell me the difference btwn them. I am running OS vbz.

OS 2050
Nova 053

Also, is there any diff between the pressue nipple facing toward the front of the car and the rear of the car? i. e., does the length of the pressure line make any difference?

Thanks in advance
Lots of RC Stuff

The JP2 is a top-end pipe, JP3 is an "all-around" pipe same with the JP4, but the JP4 has better mid-top end and better run-time. The Nova 053 is a bottom-end pipe. I don't know about the OS pipe, never heard of the model.

On that engine nothing comes close to the 2050 pipe in my humble but most accurate opinion. It really makes the v spec fly. I know people that run the jp3 but it's a fuel hog & lacks the pop the 2050 has. 2060 os pipe works real well also.

OS 2050 has super bottom & still spins very well in the high RPMs.Some like the JP-3 with that motor also but I didnt & its alot thirstyer than the OS pipe,its a all around pipe & I do use it on all my other motors. My friend runs a JP-4 on a speed & says he likes it & seems to run like other JP-3/v-spec combos but its really creepy to tune, You cant hear it if other cars are on the track it sounds like .12 motor in a 1/10 scale truck. JP-2 is more of a mid to topend pipe & 053 is more of a bottom to mid pipe. Pressure line does make a difference,I run between 7-9" on all my motors.
