Default RDLogics New Designed 1 pc Turbo II Pipe

RD Logics One piece Legal On-Road Turbo II .12 Pipe (High Performance)

Our Original Turbo pipe was the choice of Atsushi Hara’s championship run at the 2003 ROAR Nationals held at Revelation Raceway. Rather than resting on the laurels, we chose to improve the performance. We enlisted Dennis Richey (Motorman), one of the more renowned and recognized engine modifiers, to help us take the Turbo pipe to the next level. After fine tuning and thorough testing, we are now ready to release our TURBO II Pipe. The Turbo II is smoother, more powerful and more responsive from the original. This is a must have for the brand new nitro season.

LET ME TELL YOU THIS BAD WAMMER JAMMER ROCKS!

It makes power like right friggin now and revs even better than the origional. Fuel mileage went up some too. Everytime you pull the throttle its like you set a grenade off. Man its been hard not talking much about this pipe.

It has been a pleasure working with RD Logics and its only going to get better.

Thanks for the pipe work... Will it be available for the NTC3? What about the diff and drive pinion gears for the NTC3? Any progress?

serpent
you can get it either way the L at the end indicates legal

John there is a plan to get the redesign into the NTC3 pipe but it will be a while for sure. The current pipe works pretty good as it is.
Gears and pinions, was discussed and is tabled for the moment until the new engine is launched.

by the way if you guys havent tried the RD logics sedan body you should. those things work good and they are significantly more aero than the rest of the stratus bodies. They're alot like an Alfa on aero and have better steering than most stratus bodies. very similar to the new mazda body.

Will this pipe work well with all engines? I kinda remember when the Turbo I came out they said it worked really well with the modified and 5 port engines. I took that to mean that it was specifically designed to optimize "high power" engines. I have a whole range of engines and I'm just wondering if this pipe will be better than the older Turbo pipe for my "older" engines. I have an X12, MT12, OS TR, MR12, RS12T5 and now a Mega SS 5P.

Great work Motorman and RDLogics!

The legal turbo1 pipe was designed for 3 ports and the illegal was recommended for the outlaws.

Either runs very well on any engine I would recommend the old or new ones of either type for any application you have listed. They all have a little different characteristic.

In fact I have tested the turboII outlaw pipe on a bigblock 15 Rb in an Impact and I like it on that engine as well.

check the RD logics website for the dealer network. There are alot of shops that handle RD. Pipes should be shipping soon as the dealers place orders. They are just hearing about to I am sure. Oddly you will find it on the whats new page. Ken you gotta fix that.
