Default Kyosho FW05RR w/ OS 12TG Q's

Gday guys,

Just a quick one today, will the kyosho part number VSW008 be the right exhaust/header combination for this engine/car combination?

Either that, or one of the OS tuned pipe/header combinations be a better idea?

Or can someone suggest another completely different solution?

Thanks!

Ash

I'd go with the OS header and pipe. You'll get more power from that combo than the Kyosho one.

I'm more worried about the pipe actually fitting than the power...

I just want to get the car going then worry about performance later.

I'm guessing you buy the pipe to suit the car, not the engine, correct?

(as far as the physical size goes)

buy the pipe to suite the engine and the power range you are looking for.

So, all the pipes for my engine should fit any car (in theory)?
