1 piece Novarossi Pipe. Downside, you can't tune to your liking because its a 1 piece

Is there such a best system? It also depends on the engine, gears and track you are running on to optimise the overall performance of the car.

jus my 2 cent worth....

yes the novarossi or the RD turbo pipe. they both run very well and I hear that some of the new RD's may be comming with the long and short headers which gives you a tuning option.

All depends on which you need...

Low end? Here the king is the RB X12 pipe, couple it with a RB 1700-193 header and cut it to get about 97 - 101 milimeters long.

High end? Here are many ways to do, but mine experience is limited to Nova pipes. Mine preferred here is the Novarossi 51224 pipe, lots of mid and high end, specially suited for big tracks with long straights and open turns.

Personally I run a RD logics Turbo outlaw pipe. The only thing with the RB an Nova pipes is they cost to much money.

Try the Golden Horizons pipe

it is a copy of the RB pipe but a few times stronger

everyone here runs them, and they are cheap as well
