It depends on the powerband of ur engine and the layout of the track ur car is running.

the Vantage Racing pipe and header (inline pipe) are really good for racing. Light weight, strong, and proven performance.

If your running on road, the Skyline VR-12 is the one I recommend. Very smooth powerband. Check them out at SKYLINERCRACING.COM.

The Skyline VR12 pipe certainly seems to be getting very favourable feedback from those using it

I'm running the Skyline VR 12 pipe and header. The performance is great, and I'm not just saying that, not to mention it's a very strong pipe.

i've used other pipes out there for my sedan that are great but not very strong. the skyline vr12 is not just great in performance but very durable also and that's why i like it.
