Default 52 vs 60 pipes

I have the OS 3 and 5 port engines and have been playing with the pipes, switching between 52 and 60 (size of the stinger). The only thing I can tell is the 60 one uses more fuel for both engines.

Is this it? I would think the compression would be different and I would get more power from the 60.

Still learning ....

I believe that it the inside diameter of the stinger. The 52 should be 5.2mm and the 60 should be 6mm.

If I am wrong someone will let you know.

I believe the 60mm is suppose to give better top end but with higher fuel consumption. Is this correct?

Thanks!

Yes the bigger the hole the better the performance. You will also consume more fuel.
