But now it is broken in it is pretty darned impressive Does not seem to be NS12 fast yet, but at least as good as the modified RS series..........
Good to know. Where would you say you feel it is lacking? Low end, or top end?

It is the top end. The exhaust port is only 4.0mm tall and at BDC the piston does not even completly unblock the lower portion of the port.

THS is the same but they are more expensive than rdlogics at my lhs so just pay attention when purchasing

rdlogics.com is a great place to order from and the shipping is very fast

They are like $20 plus cheaper then ordering from RDLogic direct....there is no reason to order from RDLogic unless the entire world is backorder of this pipe....

Also, get the TURBO 2 pipe instead....that is the LATEST one and should be better then the 1st gen. Also figure out legal or OUTLAW...if you are local race and using 5 ports TURBO engine...do the outlaw, I have to follow ROAR rule book so I picked the standard T2 pipe.
