Default Tips on a Sportwerks V1 Pro .21 Engine

I have a new Sportwerks V1 Pro .21 Engine here that I am going to use in my Matrix buggy when the weather warms up. What I want to know are the following:

1. what pipes work well with this engine? (086, JP3, etc)
2. I plan to run MC8s for glow plugs and 25% nitro Byrons, anyone have any other suggestions?
3. what are the characterstics this engine exhibits (more of a top end monster, etc)

Thanks for any info.

cain, i ran one of those 2 years agon and really liked it...unfortunately, it was my first engine and therefore lived a short but fast life i ran the stock sportwerks 053 pipe with the u-shaped manifold and i wasn't ever left wanting for power anywhere. their very first run of engines had some small issues (funky acting low end needle, the occasional bad bearing and premature rod bushing wearing out) but nothing out of the ordinary. i clutched it with mugen carbon shoes, 1.0 springs and a 14 tooth clutch bell. rb#6 plugs worked nicely in it as would o'donell 99's.
