Default gas mileage pipes

I have a .28 (rb rt28) and its ridiculously overpowered. I was hoping to improve gas mileage and am not worried about losing power as i have to much already. Whats the most restrictive pipe out there?

I would say a 086 pipe. What size restrictor are you running this will help mileage too, a 6mm works well.

i have a 6mm carb restrictor and i've gone up 2 teeth on the clutch bell.its a little more drivable but still crazy powerful. i hear the grp pipe is a restrictive choice but i have never tried one or heared the collective opinion on it. maybe i will try the 086 though.
