Got it from Steve at SpeedtTech in the US - good people to deal with.

Oh yeah, the Serpent gaskets seem pretty good - they're the "correct" large size and decently strong, though none of them last long enough IMO.
We now use a combination of two different O-rings and they seem to hold together and last quite well.

If I recall, Motorman suggested that a certain pipe beginning with the letter "O" was not a good performer. At the time, I had to think hard before putting two and two together.

. . . unless he meant an Organ pipe.

Taylor make sure you do a back to back with the Nova pipe. Inquiring minds want to know

RD Logics and the RB Concepts V12 3 prt Turbo are a really good combo. Low and mid-range to spare.

Would you guys buy the legal or outlaw version?.......Fuel economy is an issue......The pipe will be used on a OS turbo,30% sidewinder fuel....

As a general rule, I'd expect the legal one to use less fuel.
We haven't tried the outlaw version. Our's is the legal one and it doesn't seem to have a fuel economy problem.

What is the part number on this pipe/header combo. The websites selling them don't call out a "Turbo II" and I want to make sure I get the correct one. ROAR legal of course. Thanks.

Hey Dennis, I've been running the TURBO 2 pipe 1/8th onroad, and was running the novamega pipe before. Immediately I noticed that the the tune is a bit different compared to others running Novarossi pipes. Is this because the chamber is longer? Also, Does this pipe come with the short or the long manifold?

PIPE COMES WITH THE SHORT HEADER AND THE PIPE ITSELF HAS A LONGER BAFFLE CHAMBER. SEEMS IT REALLY LIKES ANYTHING BUT THE R1WC AND 421 NOVA ENGINE. THE PIPE RUNS WELL ON THE 321. i NEED TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS BETWEEN THEM THAT i NEED TO CHANGE IN THE PIPE. tHWE TUNING WILL BE DIFFERENT BETWEEN PIPES BECAUSE THEY RESONATE DIFFERENT AND THE BACKPRESSURE IS DIFFERENT.
