Default Tuned Pipe Help Needed

I made an error when I purchased a new pipe for my MTX3 off ebay. It is an RDLogics 61900 tuned pipe for trucks is what it says on the box. (my mistake)

I am wondering if I can just replace the manifold an d all will be ok, or will I need to replace the complete unit?

As it is the manifold has the pipe sitting on the ground when all commected.

Thanks for all your help RC Tech

Sean

Should be fine if you change the header.

Excellent this is what I was hoping, are they all the same or will I need to get an RDLogics header for Touring cars?

Now this one is a real NovaRossi Manifold and looks to be a perfect fit as I am using a NovaRossi engine in my MTX3 but it is twice the price of the first pheader I showed.

Turns out it was only good for a .21 size engine.

So now I am just looking at the NovaRossi header.

Ok well I ordered the NovaRossi header today so I should see it early next week. I was able to start my car for the first time this year todat though (on the starter box) as the truck header has the pipe sitting on the ground. Man this thing just screams to be run LOL, everything went very well as I let the engine iidle threw a tank of Nitro just to be sure all was good. Very very smooth idle.

Cant wait to that this seasons racing at my local track
