Default k6001 in.ine pipe vs novarosso2630,os max1040,skyline vr 12+

anyone tried the K FACTORY K6001 in line pipe?what about its performance against other well known pipes,like novarossi,os max,sirio ,skyline,ninja,crf, etc...

http://www.the-border.com/product.ph...&cat=75&page=1

it looks very nice to me and it's at a reasonable price,but what about the performance?i know that k factory makes qualiity hop ups.are they the same good in the pipe-exhaust systems?

The Kfactory pipe is not up to teh standard of the pipes in your list.
Very lacking on the top end.
Nova/JP 2601 and Skyline VR12+ is about teh most popular pipes to use and seem to work exceptionally well and most engines.
Alternatives would be Nova/JP 2630 or Mega 2607 and the Sirio pipes.

Maybe you are right razorr.i'm searching for a second pipe,besides the sirio 2611 i own,and i was thinking about the k factory one,taking in mind that k factory is a very good brand for aftermarket quality hop ups,but in this case i'll probably go for a skyline..

The better decision would be either the Skyline or the Nova 2630, based on my experience.

I like my Novarossi 2630 better, but it costs a ton more on average.
