RD logic pipe are pretty good. Some people like AH10 on the forum use them, and they like it. I like the price and performace that it can get.

I got a nova pipe inline pipe, it is soft, but not as soft as RB i think. I ready have 2 dent on it. I don't like to use a coupler because someone will always t-bone me and cause a coupler blow out. So I got a inline instead, it was strong enought to hold both pipe and header in place. About the Frozen pipe fixture, will any chance the pipe over expand?

yeah a little bit. depending on the material used for the pipe. my old reb pipe bloated up real bad. the seprent pipe kind of expanded a fraction. if you freeze it several times it will changed shape

I tried freezing a couple of pipes with water overnight for 12 hours. The first pipe, Paris Turbo ring that exploded and ripped apart. The second pipe a novarossi didn't do anything, NONE of the dents got pushed out even a mm.

I'm thinking of getting a new pipe for my nrs4. It has a RB c12 turbo on it with a dynamite header, along with a cvec. Im wondering what pipe would work best at mid-top end or just top end. Only thing i like about my cvec is that it is loud and has a great sound(sounds like a low gargling sounds ). Also how does the thickness of the manifold(header) help sound and power . Any opinion would help good, bad, and/or the ugly.

u can match the port size of the manfoldd to the exhaust port if the port on the manifold is smaller then the one on the engine just get the good old dremal out and get rid of some alloy till they are the same size and shape this makes the exhaust flow smother and faster and it goes faster and sounds a bit louder

Umm.. Having a thinner or smaller bore header gets the exhaust out quicker and more efficiently making it more of a high speed header. Thats why high speed pipes are always shorther and thinner than tourque pipes. Don't Drill, leave it the way it is.

Yeah the manifold(header). I should get a slight boost in top speed. im running the cvec so who knows. with my current gearing on my nrs4, i have the 2nd gear 20/37 so speed isnt a problem. But i do like my engine running in top condition and anything to help it would be great. I finally got the hang of tuning. And from what I heard tuning a RB isnt too easy so im pround of myself . Since i only bash knowing the speed of my car isnt too important. I just like to have fun. Well I do race my but but his r/c cant touch my nrs4 . Ah well im just rambling on. thanx again
