You need to ask yourself a few questions before we can suggest you a pipe!

1. you need bottom end torque or top end speed?
2. for what kind of car
3. what kind of track?

as far as I know, Novarossi makes some good pipes, for example 51601 is a high speed pipe, 51602 is good torque pipe, 51603 is kind of in between the 2. 51220 is made for 15 size engine and it is a high speed pipe, I was told there are a few top notch driver using 51220 pipe so that means there must be something right about that!

Hope this help!

I'd go for the inexpensive Associated pipe.

i will be running a mid size track with about 120 ft straights, and a couple chikains and 45 degree turns and a couple 90 degree turns, so i guess this is a mid size track. i have a trinity reflex car and i am not sure of what to get top end or torque . if i went with a top end i can gear it for my punch right or how does that work?

One of the best ways to find out what kind of pipe to run at your track:

LOOK AT WHAT THE FAST GUYS OR REALLY GOOD VET GUYS RUN AT YOUR TRACK.

If you are new to GP then a high speed pipe (top end) may actually be better because it is usually the initial acceleration that catch a lot of people out. With a top end pipe the acceleration is tamed a bit more and to a starter that can help with better driving. Unfortunately, the only real top end pipe I have is the NR 51223 which is a .15 inline pipe!

To be honest any pipe is really for fine tuning the car. In general the mid to top end pipes will have a longer initial tapered section and will have narrower bodies, were low end pipes have fatter bodies and shorter tapered section.

Having seen Manitcore Paris turbo ring pipe run I quite like it... price is fairly reasonable in the States.... you could try that (this pipe does not follow the usual rule of the tapered sections).
