I'm not sure wether that is the pipe i have but mine is EFRA legal too. I have to say this pipe is so versitile. It worked great on my rb. It worked great on my LL3. And it works great on my TZ, it is just such a good pipe!

Do I need a different header or is it supposed to be loose?

Thanks
You need to use the original Nova Rossi conical Header, the fit is really snug

The name of this thread should be changed to the "Official Pipe Thread".
It looks like we have some good dialogue on pipes going on here and I finally got some input on Vantage pipes. Thanks guys!

Didn't some guy placed 3rd in the ROAR Nationals this past weekend with the Vantage pipe? If the dude placed third, it should be a highly reputable pipe IMO.

The Skyline VR 12 PLUS was used by 4 of the drivers in the A-main at the Nationals last week and the 2nd place finisher in the Open class also used it. You should give the Skyline pipe a try. It's getting more popular by the weekend.

100% BETTER, big improvement from bottom to top "pure power" and good run time

I tried a few pipes today on my Sirio STI. The Sirio 2611 Touring, Skyline VR12, Mugen 2501, and the Novarossi 2630 with 6 fin conical header. As expected, the Sirio pipe worked nicely on this engine with a linear powerband and ok runtime. The Mugen pipe had the best fuel mileage and great top end but felt a little bit less willing to pick up out of slow corners. The VR12 on the other hand was a gun out of the turns and low-mid but seemed to run out of steam early on the 270ft straight. Finally, the 2630 pipe was crazy fast throughout the whole rev range. My shift point needed to be adjusted and it was really screaming down the end of the straight. It had the worst fuel consumption although still made time pretty comfortably.

Default max 2602 efra pipe

well... last weekend i raced using this max pipe for the 1st time into my stock TZ3 ( previous i was using nova 2630 ) what i can say is that it works great....good/maybe awesome power band from bottom,mid and top....the most critical difference is the mileage...less fuel consumption comparing to the other (maybe 10-15%)the engine idles good too....i overturn and broken something,for at least 20-30 second b4 my pitcrew pick it up and return to the pit the engine still idling sweetly
