Default Tuned Pipes

Is there one company in general that anyone would say has good pipes, for .12's i mean, or would you say its just best to get a pipe from the same company the engine came from, namely engines form novarossi, os and especially which pipe to use on a jp engine? it seems i may be able to save up for a REAL competition car this summer so i want to learn all i can before i really settle on anything.

The Mugen pipes are very popular amongst the guys running JP engines, apparently these pipes are giving excellent performance.

I don't base a pipe on performance....I also factor in how its built.....I don't need to have some newbie t bone me and ruin a 70 dollar pipe....or worse,knock me out of a race......

I'm going to give the new CVEC pipes a try....supposed to be real sturdy....

I'm using Kawahara ZAC pipes for my JP engine.
I think JP, Max or regular Nova 52607 will work good also.

We found the best pipe suitable for every engine is Skyline VR12. We tryed on stock REX, Palmaris BRB REX, Palmaris Bi-metall REX and Palmaris BRB JP FX12, we tryed on belt driven and shaft driven cars, compared back to back with everything else available, the best pipe so far.

Yeah I got to see the pipe and car in action today. Also saw them sitting on the shelf at superior. They definently look way more sturdy and I like how the stinger shoots straight out instead of bent. Because that seems to be the problem with why the bend a lot. At least in that direction.

I should know I bent the crap outta my RDlogic that way today. I bent it back and thought....I want to try the CVEC soon.

The Skyline VR12 pipe is the best built pipe I have seen, and among the fastest there are too. I only use the Skyline pipe now, as far as build quality, power, and price it is unbeatable. Can't wait to try the new chassis.
