Default Pipe & Manifold for OS .18TZ in a Kyosho RRR?

I'm looking at putting the O.S. .18 TZ (P) engine into a Kyosho V-One RRR.

I am unsure which exhaust combo will work let alone work well. I'm going for a balance between torque and fuel consumption.

These are what appear to be my choices.....

A) O.S. T-2050SC Mark Pavidis Tuned Pipe With Manifold (Welded Nipple)
B) O.S. T-2060SC WN One Piece Tuned Pipe With Manifold (Welded Nipple)
C) RB Concept Polished Exhaust Manifold .15-.18 (Revo/On-Road) made just for the OS .18 TZ engine- With unknown pipe

???

Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind, I just realized the to O.S. exhausts I listed above are 180 degree manifolds and I need a 90 degree. Looks like the RB manifold is it.

Any suggestions on a good pipe for it? How about the Novarossi EFRA 3005 One Piece Tuned Pipe (No Manifold)?

Ok, O.S. says the best pipe for thie engine is the "O.S. Tuned Pipe T-1040 L52 Left Side". So I will orde that tuned pipe.

They (O.S.) then said the header simply depends on what the car calls for.

So would the "RB Concept Polished Exhaust Manifold .15-.18 (Revo/On-Road) [RBD01801P]" that is made just for this engine be the right shape/fitment for the RRR?

Thanks!

EDIT: Ok check me on these 2 before I order one of these sets:

Spring Connect:
Header - "OSMG2608" T-1040SC L-52 – 12TG/TZ
Pipe - "OSM72106310" T-1040SC L52 Left Side Tuned Pipe
Exhaust Seal - "OSMG8871" O.S. Exhaust Seal O-Ring (2)


OR

Non-Spring connect:
Header - "OSMG2617" M1001 – 12TG/TZ
Pipe - "OSM72103051" O.S. Tuned Pipe T-1040 L52 Left Side
Joint - "OSMG8875" O.S. 15RX Joint Tube
Exhaust Seal - "OSMG8871" O.S. Exhaust Seal O-Ring (2)

It's better to order the non-spring connect right?

Damn that would have been sweet too with their HD1817. Dang it lol. Would have been about the same price.

I just did a search and every thread people are complaining about them cracking/fracturing too easy. I'll stand by my choice in getting the O.S. exhaust

Got my O.S. manifold and pipe Saturday. Looking at it I can't help but feel like I made a mistake by not going with the spring connect version. Something about zip-ties holding together my exhaust lol.

I think I might order up that carbon Vantage exhaust and give that a try too.
