Funny I just ask someone that question last night on the mugen thread. Go the RD Logics Pipe... Great Price and good product.

The RB V12 is similar to the NS but in my experience with it (limited 1 race meet!) it tunes a little easier, but lacks overall RPM compared to the NS. Appears to have a nice fat midrange.

As such I would recommend the RD logics pipe (turbo 2 style) (I have the THS branded ones, same thing) with the new shorter header. This will enhance the top end a little.

On a tuning note if you find that your RB is down a little on RPM add a .1mm shim into it and you will see a RPM increase.

ok, I was on the right track. I saw the turbo II and considered it as my first choice but wanted to look into other pipes before i made the final choice. I was also told that the Yokomo was a good pipe as well. AMG....what you recommended about the shim, was that with using 30%?

the new yoke pipe is good, now not only yoke selling it, mugen sells this pipe as well just under mugen package.
