As I really was under the impression that this engine was completely new, I did not dare to answer, but as it seems it is the same as the Mega ZX, I think you can see a difference in the crankcase, especially around the fuel ports.

I ran my Mega DSII engine's with the 2018 and 2033 exhausts, but after trying the 2052, even more power comes alive....

I don't think people meant to avoid your question, I'm not sure if anyone had an honest answer for you. But thanks for finding out for everyone.

Should I add a third shim if running 30%? .64?

please note that you might run it then with .85mm of head clearance.... this is to much....

You should run the engine with .6mm of head clearance.

To measure your head clearance, you can do the solder test, or put the piston in TDC, unscrew the head and head button, and measure the distance from top of piston to top of liner. (remove all shims)
Also measure (again, without the shims) the depth of the head button. These 2 figures should give you the headclearance without any shims.

Doug,

OFNA has not decided to bring any pipes in yet. In the mean time you can go with the Serpent Mega 2033 (part #203045). You can check it out here...

The Serpent Mega 2033 pipe set (#203045) is currently out of stock from Serpent itself.

I tried the 2052 pipe/header combo this past weekend and it was amazing. I've ran my DSII for about 5 or 6 months now with the 2033 and had no complaints but the power from the the 2052 is very surprising. Try it.
