Default Pipe for OS 12 Speed Motor G4S

Hey all
I have just brought a Team Magic G4S and OS 12 Speed Motor for it. Does anyone know of a suitable pipe for this combination?

Cheers

Skyline VR12+, Novarossi 52606, or Novarossi 51610 with Novarossi 41616 header (6 fins). That would be my picks.

Are there OS Pipes to suit the motor? I hear the Rossi ones are a little on the expensive side

Since the OS Speed looses some of the monster torque of the basic TZ in favor of more top end, I've found that the best pipe is the original OS speed pipe.....it is expensive, but worth the performance, plus it is EFRA/IFMAR legal...the Skyline isn't.

I thought that the Skyline was legal but the outlaw version was not?

Maybe it is ROAR legal, but for sure it is not EFRA/IFMAR legal, it does not have an homologation number stamped I.E. EFRA 2630, like the Novarossi. or 2607 like the Picco, etc.

Skyline pipe is the pipe to use and very durable.
It is ROAR approved and pending EFRA/IFMAR.
For us its legal so long as it conforms to any of the international bodies mentioned and the JMRCA.
main issue is 5mm stinger.

I'm having a hard time figuring out all this legal and non legal stuff. ROAR legal and not IFMAR. IFMAR and no EFRA...

makes me get a big headache, but I don't plan to go into any international, european or national events soon.
