The best pipe selection advice I've seen and used with success was published some time ago by Motorman (Dennis Richey) in his forum thread. I will reprint it and hope Dennis doesn't mind.
It would be nice if Dennis reads it, if he could update this guide.
Hope it helps

Pipe Selection
I will give you a list of pipes ranging from torque biased to rpm biased in an approximated order. Torque at the top and RPM at the bottom.
1.- Sharp cone on each end long flat band center, single chamber = low biased:
RC 10 GT
Paris turbo ring
Fantom steel
NTC3 rear and side exhaust standard pipes
2.- Aggressive divergent cone = low-mid biased:
NovaMega TPO5
Novarossi 51604
Ofna one piece
3.- Moderate divergent cone = mid biased. This is the mid list, and these all act similarly. Good all around pipes neither bottom or top end biased:
NovaMega TP04
Novarossi 51603
RB X12
RD logic one piece roar legal
NovaMega TP02
4.- RPM top end biased not roar legal due to stinger diameter:
RD logic outlaw
RB X15 outlaw
RB X12 outlaw
5.- Moderate divergent cone, aggressive convergent cone = Mid top end biased. Roar legal hard to find now due to the fact that short rod rever motors are the norm stock. These were the hot ticket on the MT 12:
Picco 12 pipes
Novarossi 51601
Rex 52625
Now all that said, how to pick a pipe:
If the engine is a short rod rever you need a torque pipe to enhance the bottom end, because the engine will be biased and take over on the top.
If the engine is a long rod engine you need a rev pipe to help the engine unload on the top.
Another note; The stinger diameter has a dramatic effect on the top and bottom end.
Bigger = top end at the sacrifice of low end torque.
Smaller= low end at the sacrifice of high end revs.
Pipe length must be considered the same way:
Shorter = top end at the sacrifice of low end torque.
Longer = low end at the sacrifice of high end revs.
Engine expectations according to rod length
Very short:
HPI 15 FE
Rossi Pixi
Short:
STS RS
RB X12 and all the X12 derivatives
All Novarossi 12 engines except the MT
All Nova mega 12 engines
Mid length:
Picco 12 and 15
Collari 12 all
Long:
STS MT
Mugen MT
With all this you should be able to pick a suitable pipe for your car based on the engine it has in it and the track you will run on.

If Dennis ever has time (i know he's a busy man), he really should write a book. Or let us take a look inside that noggin for a small service charge.

Thanks Dennis, we'll wait with interest your updated "pipe selection guide" Meanwhile two questions: The Sirio engine drops into what category in terms of rod lenght, and the MMielke pipe what type is it.

I think that does not exist one unique system ... for example, my Novamega SX12RE EV1 works GREAT with RD Logics Turbo pipe system and with the TP04 Novamega system, but sucks with the OS 1032 pipe, wich works AWESOME with my RB X12 non turbo ...

hope this helps ...

Don't quote me on this but I once physically measured the length of the Sirio rod. It was very close to the Collari one as we wanted to swap the conrod into the Sirio...

The Yokomo Mielke pipe? I would guess it's more of a low end biased type because of the large volume. My 2 cents.

I just got a shark installed and it is the best pipe in the sense that it will hardly get dented and the stinger is not going to cave in! Performance wise its a decent pipe ... the in line outlaw has a huge diameter!

I love my Skyline VR12. My friend Uriah Murnan Is a team driver for Skyline and he loves the pipe. I am only thirteen so I like that it is only $50 too.
