Speaking of dampers, is it possible to get the front or rear damper as a unit? If yes where, if not then where can a get a damper casing?

I use both a associates pipe and the standard rex pipe.. I have a inlinerb x12 in my sights now.


To ah10:

Where did you get your 50225 pipe from. I wanted to go with that but couldn't find it anywhere.

My understanding is that "turbo" pipes have a larger internal diameter on the stinger than is allowable under ERFA, ROAR, etc rules. They allow higher exhaust flow and therefore get more power, but are also noiser. I run turbo pipes on turbo plug and non-turbo plug engines, so I know they do no harm to the engine and performance is excellent.

Excellent! yeah I run a .15 turbo pipe now. I like teh feel. Someone was telling though becareful of the back pressure. That due to the bigger stinger it may not be creating enough. Not sure how true that is.
