I'm not going to use the header because I have a one piece RB set. When I purshased it I didn't know anything about exhausts. Now when I've read some info on the net I think that I need a pipe that is for high rpm because RB's are better on the low-mid end and to compensate I need that kind of pipe am I right or ...

Probably you installed the fuel tank backwards... when you open the tank lid, the inner of the lid should face forward the car.

Pipe selection will be determined by your local track or which kind of tracks you frequent.... But an all around pipe is the Nova 51604 or the RD Logics Turbo. Probably Motorman can shed some more light about this, many time ago gave a list of pipes that is constantly appear by other threads.

I've put the tank right it's my battery pack that's causing the problem. Because I've made it myself from single cells and wraped it with tape it can't fit the holder. So it hits the tank when it is all together. I'll think of something . One of the reasons I bought this kit is because I know if I have some questions or problems I can ask here and there is always someone thats willing to help. So thanks

What size cells are you using? The stock storage area calls for AAA in a 3+2 Config hump.You can also trim the battery plate at the lip edges if its a tad too tight just so you don't trim it too much as to weaken it. The Ready Made Packs are Nice but if you build them right you can build 4 for the price of 1 premade.

I am using the 3+2 hump AAA config and without the tape there is some space between the cells and the holder. I have to put just the right amount of tape so the cells are covered and can fit in. My pack is 800map and give me quite good running times so I don't think it will be wise to buy a premade one.

be sure you make something like this. I make up my pack myself with AAA size cells and the pack fits into the holder perfectly.

You may get what you pay for, but in the STS, its almost half the price of Nova based engines. When you add to that the very cheep rebuild price, you can have a D3 and rebuild it 3 times before you have spent the same ammount on a nova.

Sure, the STS might not last as long, but actuall running cost is much less. And, open up the exhaust port a little and you have yourself a very inexpensive competative club engine.
I only paid $145.00 for my mt/12 3 port & $200.00 for the mr/12 5 p torbo.
