k5.9 with dynamite .31 gas exhaust discussion

Post by bigbigbrig » Thu Nov 05, 2015 8:57 am

I was looking around on ebay today.
I've been finding the dynamite .31 gas motor exhaust pretty cheap.
My question is that if the k5.9 did well with exhaust designed for the CEN 7.7 how would it do with a system designed for a .31 gas motor.
The general design looks the same as a nitro exhaust set up.
The point of this is to generate discussion.
Would it be worth trying.

I had the CEN exhaust on my 5.9, but sold it after running the 086 from Dynamite, never found the CEN exhaust to be that good.

I've not looked at the gas pipe, but don't see any reason it would do better on a Nitro engine vs pipes designed for Nitro engines.

Just my opinion though

My reasoning for this discussion was the new dynamite exhaust was designed for a .31 size engine. The K5.9 is a .36 and the cen exhaust that does well on the k5.9 is designed for a 7.7
I think most exhaust systems are designed around a .21 to .28 size engine because that has been the most popular size in the past.
