Default Losi 8 rtr tuned pipe questions

I have a very expensive pipe I baught couple years back for my savage 25, I just hardly ever run that truck. Would that pipe be ok for the Losi 8? What size engine is the 427 that comes in the losi 8, is it a 27?

it is a .27, i doubt it would be a good pipe for one reason.....the 427 is a gas hog......and what is the chances that fuel milage was considered in the design of a pipe for a monster truck mostly for bashing, id say it would have awsome power, .......i bet it would scream for about 4 1/2- 5 min.....what can it hurt to bolt it up and see what happens but i would time my run......

Ive run the JP-2 and the dynamite 053 and so far i think the dynamite has a slight edge on top end.
