Default Matching Pipe for OS TZ 12

Any body has any experience with tuned pipes for the TZ 5 port? The 1040 seems hard to come by at my LHS.

Any suggestions?

You can also use the skyline VR12 plus pipe or any novarossi 2601 pipe to get good performance.

Unless you're trying to get the 1040 directly from your LHS, you can always try Towerhobbies. They have it in stock.

Anyone knows/tried if the OS1040 is a better choice than the Skyline or the Nova?

I've used them all on tz3. (nova, vr12+ and 1040) The 1040 was better. Also gave me longer run time. I could easily get 5.5 to 6 min on a tank with this pipe. I'm not sure about the 5 port.

True the 1040 is a perfect match for the tz you can also try the 2601 as well. I have tried both and the results were great.

i've never had the chance to use the 1040. but have tried out the nova 2630 and max 2602 with my TZ3. the max were better. good runtime too.

Wow, thanks for all the great responses.

Do I need to use the OS manifold as well? Reason is my LHS only stocks the pipe but not the entire set.

Yes, I know I can get it from Tower but I like to go to my LHS every now and then because they help me a lot, especially on nitro. Won't be in the hobby without them.

One more question. The OS 1040 has a 52 and 60 version. What is the difference and how do you choose between the two?

I have try 6mm:

- Skyline v 12 pipe
- JPL pipe
- Rb turbo pipe

All very gd... the feeling for the skyline n JPL pipe is about the same... but when i use rb turbo pipe... i can feel that the engine is running smoother!

If you can find the RB X-12 pipe it is just as good on the low end but better on the high end than the 1040. But you have to use the header the x12 comes with or use the JP middle header (6 fin I believe). That combo will get you straight but that also depends on your clutch and the tune.
