Default exhaust mod

a cheap exhaust mod for the standard pipe disassemble the pipe and remove the cone drill 3mm holes approx 120 degrees apart towards the larger end of the cone. If you can get them on the angle the exhaust gas flows this will help all round

will not be very cheap if you do it the wrong way though
you're aiming for top end w/ this, right? did it once,... not very satisfied w/ the result, making single-chamber instead

If you want more performance

get the kyosho tune pipe and option header

The black tune pipe is great I use the IFMAR legal piple and the chrome header. This just has so much torque. Looking to sell because I want to buy an FW-05R

this mod improves mid to top i know of people that have drilled 4 holes at the smaller end and it still improved. At the end of the day if u cant afford a new performance pipe then y not experiment with the original. some people like it some dont- every mod is all to do with driving style-i feel an aggressive driver will prefer this mod

The lenght of the header does make a difference but you have to be carfull changing the lenght too much will get out of the engines sweet spot and the engine will not gain any more power.

If you are after torque try the option chromed header.

MOD the standard pipe is a good ideal


I drill mine out about a year ago. Gave a little better performance.

Drill out the center hole so that it is to the edge of the cone. Then start with small holes in the baffel. Also put a new pressure line before the baffel this will make a big difference.

i wont be able to mod it as i really dont know what im doing i know what you mean though to drill through the baffle to make it a high flow muffler like punching out a Cat convertor on a real car. but yea ill just leave it as that as my suppler for the VoneS has tuned it really well and now it flies for a GS-15R and i dont want it going to to fast as i orginally stepped down from a VoneRR to this car so i could learn how to drive ! all i goto do now is make the 2 speed click in!!! haha! can anyone tell me how many threads are out from that little grub screw ? from their VoneS 2 speed. thanks

the adj on the 2 speed will depend on engine tuning/revs just screw the adj screw all the way in then run it back it off 1/4 turn and repeat till u get the desired shift

With the GS15, I noticed the difference almost everytime I did anything to it. I just don't think the change from having a gasket to not having one would be anything to write home about.

With your 2 speed, just when you think you're close, go to 1/8 turns versus 1/4 turns. You'll appreciate the finer point when you run at a track with a variety of turns and you get the chance to run them at just the right way [for ya].

It's on the biggest rear gear and you'll have to rotate the gear [with your thumb] unitl you see the open and then keep rolling it [roll back and then forward slowly or you'll be rolling forever]backward until you the hex screw opening.

Essentially, find the opening then roll the shaft until the hex can be accessed from the opening on the spur gear.

he gave it to ya for free? and tell us what color is the head of the motor? and we'll tell ya what series it is unless he has changed the head. but theoretically the gold head is series one and silver head is series 2 but if you got a blue head then he has changed it to a aftermarket head. Also another way to tell for a newbie is the tank if its got a primer, the button you press so that it flows the fuel to the carb. You can get body shells on ebay or through your local hobby shop.
