Default Are people running the Alpha 2090 pipe?

Anybody running the new Alpha 2090 pipe with the little extension thingies?

Is this a good investment? Will it work well on most engines?

its a real nice pipe. gives you adjustment other pipes do not have. it has a longer header than the other Alpha pipes. it smooths out the power and gives good run time. i dont know how well it would work on other engines, works well on Alpha engines. i match the exhaust stinger with the carb restrictor so that it has the same airflow going in as going out.

Well my two new engines are an Argus A52 and a Nosram 21RR(identical to the LRP ZR21X, which is a Picco P7 Evo 3). They say in the Argus thread that the SH 3033 pipe is best, which I don't have - and can't readily get ahold of. I already have the best pipe for the Nosram/Picco - the 2063, but am always keen to experiment. I would really only invest in the 2090 if I heard it was particularly awesome on the Argus, AND that it was good for a wide-ish variety of engines.. Already have too many pipes... Was just wondering if this thing is a one-hit wonder..

The best pipe for the Argus is the 0801.

Well, same deal.. Not available here.. Am planning to try it with a NR 9901/short header. Am breaking it in now with a JP-4.. In any case, I haven't heard of anybody trying a 2090 with the Argus...

the Argus is a Orange head alpha with different crank... the 0801, 2081 and 2090 will all be great pipes for them, its all driver preference.... personally i like the 0801 best. but others love the 2081.... however, the 2090 will probably be best on run time depending on driving style... ive tested all these pipes on Alpha engines which are close to Argus and they all work great.

2081 - more low end power but least run time (probably good runtime on a tight indoor style track)
0801 - good all around power and good runtime
2090 - smooth power and great run time

That's what I thought too.

Lance from RCRenew has tested both and sells both. Straight from his site: http://rcrenew.com/pipes.html

A-Plus F-0801
"The A-Plus F-0801 black hardcoated tuned pipe puts out great performance on the Argus A52 .21 engine. It provides excellent fuel mileage, punchy bottom end and screaming midrange and top end! Great for truggies or drivers who like explosive bottom end"

SH 3033
"The SH 3033 pipe provides a smooth power band on the Argus A52 .21 engines, great for buggies, low traction surfaces or drivers who prefer a smoother bottom end power delivery.While providing excellent fuel mileage the 3033 has smooth bottom end power and screaming mid and top end."

You can pick up both pipes from plenty of online retailers including ebay. You shouldn't have a problem finding them.

I'd put a 2058 on a Argus before any other...tested all the different pipes and nothing runs quite like the 2058 IMHO...

I've got the 2058 and like it. Good to know if I never have to buy another pipe when I try different mills.

Default Alpha 2090 pipe

We tried the 2090 on our S852 this weekend at the TNT cash back race in Shrevesport.

We have been running the 0801 pipe for about a year and decided to run the 2090, Hunter ran the 7.5 mm stinger end and said it really smoothed out the bottom end and let me get into the throttle a little sooner, also appeared to be mileage increase

So please look into this as we found it to be very good.
