Seriously, go with at matched pipe.

I've found that when there is an engine manufacture that also makes pipes, they always are the best options for their product.

I also run a S3, and my pipe is the rb 2045.

I tried a few other pipes, before I decided to match it up, wish I would have just done this first. From now on, this will always be my first course of action.

I agree with you, fortunately the 053 and 086 are Nova pipes (makers of RB) just copied by others. The 2045 is one of the best for that motor under the later IFMAR rules but here in the states, we can still run the good old 2 chamber pipes. If you just have to have a match, you may still be able to find an RB 9886.

I definitely would not run a JP pipe on an RB. It was well documented that JP pipes tend to make RB's run hotter. 2045, 086, 053 would be the better choices a S3 has plenty of bottom so you would probally want to run a 086 or 2045. Keep in mind this is a S3 don't try to get a ton of top end out of it. It just does not have alot of top but its a beast on the bottom.

x2 plain and simple. you can make it work but wont be smooth. 086 or 053. great price and perfect match. 2020 or 2045 will be strong pipes but wont get the runtime of 086 with stock long header

The 053 and the JP-3 pipes both work well on this engine.
