Default Pipe recommendation for Novarossi S21P5XLT engine

HI all

I am going to buy a Novarossi P5XLT motor and wanted to know what pipe/manifold the experienced drivers would recommend for it.

I am racing at mostly small, looser condition tracks so top end is not my concern. I do not have an unlimited budget also if that helps recommendations. Thanks for all the help guys!

Novarossi 2096 pipe with a 41021 header. Good bottom and mid power with smooth delivery.

+1 on that. Ran mine for the firs time last weekend. Ran a 2058 before that and was really impressed. Put that Nova on and almost couldn't believe how much better it was.

9853 with 41005 is a great combo

Truth or buggy?and if so what brand because certain headers don't fit too well with brands. I use the 9901 super strong with 41021 header for power and to smooth it out I use the 2096 to smooth it out,gave me less wheel spin overall in low traction and also a tad bit more runtime.

Depends on the track(s) your running.
I would get the longer header if your running on smaller, tighter tracks where top end is not an issue.
And the shorter if your running on larger tracks. Keep in mind the pipe will play a huge factor.

9853 or Dynamite 053 and Nova 41005 header. You'll like it!

Is the dynamite 053 a dead match of the nova 9853?

If you are running a buggy a 2096 is what I would run. Truggy I would run a 9853.

9886SS with 41001 if you can still find them. after a shovel this is the easiest way to "displace" your track
