I have a mugen mtx with a Gutted CVEC Pipe.. i hear stuff about the Novarossi pipes being the best for the MT12... What do you guys think is best? Also is gutting the cvec bad or good?

Also i dont care if its not race legal.. This is jes for bashing

I only see your car, not the pipe , The cvec pipe is good on power and TQ, my friend has one back then when his rs4 is stock, he keeps up with other rs4 that has only a 2 speed, no pipe. After he got a 2 speed, the car just flys. The nova pipe looks good, and has very good performance. Thats what I have on my Mugen. Even though I haven't ran the car yet, ppl at the local track has it, sound good and look good. Too bad the cvec is not race legal, o well Everywhere has to have a rule, if not, it wouldn't be any chall. to anyone.

True, It's a V one R, But still, I rather have that purple brace to hold the header than the spiing. I have a hard time trying not to bent or mess up the sping. Also the spring cost 3 bucks for one, so it u mess one up kiss the 3 dollar good bye The Brace is also handy if you don't have a set of plier in you tool box, you can just use what ever screw driver to take it out. Of course You guy have more than 3 screw driver in your pit box right??

Yes, it's a Serpent Impulse. The brace does not hold the header on, it just provides support for the chassis. You will still need the spring.
