Default Sedan Pipe/Manifold Combos

What do you think is the best ROAR legal Pipe/Manifold combo for a .12 sedan? I know that track size figures into it so lets say the track has a 180 ft straight with an average infield. Also, other than not being able to adjust the length, what are the disadvantages & advantages to a "1 piece" pipe/manifold? Thanks.

RD Logics Turbo II, after all it was on the winning nats car last year. It has no equal. The new Turbo II hard annodized pro series pipes are on the way now. Big rush as we are flat out of Turbo II's at the moment.

PS I'm a squeek Biased.

I have just gotten the RDLogics Turbo II (KLR ver) pipe, to use on my new JP FX12 T-03. This pipe has the most effective looking header I've seen lately. It's so big in diameter, or volume! And it's shape is totally different from the other headers I've been using, it comes out, alot, away from the head, before it turns back and down, it has to be more free-flowing.

I've heard so many good things about it, I'm really looking forward to running it in later today.

Mo runs a Schumacher R12, like I do... none of these pipes will fit with out a lot of bending.
