Uhm.... maybe a great idea, I got several technical books. The two I'm using more on this days are two from a guy called Dennis Moore (a former GM engineer, I think) and are related to GM SBC and BBC (one on each).

Have other books, but can be a great idea to write a book (if you can spare time for writing). For sure that if you publish a book I'll buy one.

Default Exhaust pipe and manifold recomendations

I know that this can be a little off-topic here, but...

I have a brand new car (MTX3) and planning to go shopping for a exhaust pipe and manifold for competing (sorry, had an NTC3 and never cared so much for other pipes until now) for fast tracks.

My two engines are: Sirio 12 ROAR and RB 1700-215 (X12 'by Rody 3 port).

How about those in-line pipes? Which to choose

I was thinking of asking the same things. maybe someone should start an engine/pipe combo thread and Dennis could chime in.

Dennis in your opinion which of the motors is the best for a short track lots of grip and a big track in the 185-200 straight away. Turbo or non turbo does it really make a difference can you give me 3 port options and 5 port options

Thanks,

I have a Top/Novarossi TN-12 and I believe it is a long rod engine like the mt-12. The back plate doesn't have a flat spot to clear the piston like on the rs-12 and x-12. Also the parts listing calls for the 07600 rod and 08600 pist/cyl which is the same as the mt-12. So is this engine included in "All Novarossi 12 engines except the mt" or the "Mugen MT" catagories.
Thanks,
Dennis

Hi Dennis,

How about the Sirio and OS TR engine, which category do they fall into Short/Long or Mid Rod?

Opps, I meant 08601 for the pist/cyl number. That's what I get for not looking it up. 08600 is for the long rod (and maybe short rod evo2?) side exhausts engines, 08601 is for the MT-12 and TN-12 according to the NR booklet.

Dennis, what a fantastic post.
That's exactly the sort of info I need - and probably many others, also.
If this stuff was in a book, I'd buy it.

Now it looks like you've already written the first chapter, above.
Just write another nine, I'll proof read it and organise the publishing, printing and marketing.
You will need to commit to updating it every year, for two reasons. Firstly, this game changes so quickly, and secondly, this is your primary income stream.
The rest of the year you can spend with your family, racing and tuning the latest crop of engines for next years edition - oh, and put a fast one aside for me, please.

That was easy - I've just arranged your whole life in one paragraph.

Seriously, though . . . great post, thank you.

Cheers, Gavin

Thumbs up Great Info!

Thanks for the info Dennis. It seems like the more you answer the more questions will be asked but we are definitely appreciative of you taking the time and giving input! Time to go hunting for some of these pipes to experiment.

I ran a nova mega 2686 inline designed for .15's on a 5 port .12 collari. It is designed like the torque pipes but it has a large manifold and stinger and it woke an already fast engine up into a monster on top and bottom ends.
