It was ok..It's been awhile. The car had a little push. I think when I get a few of the newer parts the car will be really good.

Has anyone tried the VR12+ with OS 12 TZ 3port? Any comparison with OS 1040? THx in advance.

One of the skyline drivers used it in vegas, it was really good. This pipe works great with just about any .12 out there.

I'll be running the VR12+ w/OS .12 TZ 3 Port this weekend. Based on what everyone has been posting, this is the pipe to get. All the top racers are using it and even the guys in the RRR thread speak very highly of the V12. VR12+ is a proven winner (see the Las Vegas Grand Prix 2006 results, post #536 ), so you can't go wrong. Just get it!

Ken: Got the package yesterday. Thanks for taking care of me!

Just want to say thanks to Skyline for providing me with the new VR12 Plus pipe at the Vegas Grand Prix . The pipe performed perfect with my TZ. Anyone running an OS and wondering if this pipe works , the answer is YES. Thanks again Ken Li.

I was using the VR 12 PLUS with an OS 12 TZ in Las Vegas. I think it worked perfectly for the motor and I easily made 5 minutes running around 230 deg.

New pipe is looking good! Are you guys using one or two springs to attach the header to the engine? Any advantage to just using one?

For you V-ONE RRR owners, the tuned pipe exhaust flange on the engine exhaust port side is small enough so that it doesn't touch the belt. Also, take note of the difference in header curvature between two one-piece pipes.

i use 2 springs for the manifold and it seems to help extend the gasket life and reduce chances of coupler springs stretching

I always use two if possible. You just never know when a spring is going to break, but it's usually when the car is on the track

You can ask Peter about that, he has experience in that field.

The RDLogics header looks like the original one. When they brought out their TurboII pipe they had a shorter header similar to the Skyline. The neat thing was we didn't loose much on the bottom with the shorter header.

The RDLogics spring is really tight - almost as if I were trying to kill my engine by strangling it. The Skyline spring is a lot looser - but I'm not sure if that's by design. Putting two springs is not a problem, because I have more than one V12Plus, so I have two of the same spring. I was just curious as to what other people are doing.

The spring is to keep the manifold in place and still have some play in case the pipe gets hit. I think having it too tight does more harm than good. 1. the spring digs in and creates a groove on the manifold hole, having to drill another hole when it gets too thin. 2. Spring hook snaps and breaks sooner. 3. Pushes and puts too much pressure on the gasket
