OFNA 086 Exhaust Pipe with a Sweeping 180 Header

Post by malacus » Fri Jul 17, 2015 9:41 pm

The OFNA 086 exhaust pipe comes with a 2 tight bends manifold.  Would the performance of this pipe be benefited or hindered by the use of a sweeping 180 header?
It will be installed on a LRP 30X engine.
Thank you in advance for your insights.

Depends on the length. Longer header is more low end shorter for top. The bends in the 086 header will not hurt performance.

I run a modded lrp.32 spec 4 modded by Neal Smith from owner of THE NITRO SHOP. Per his dyno testing the the manifold has a lot to do with performance the long sweeping 180 manifold gives faster acceleration and bottom end less topend. The tight double 90 manifold give slower acceleration but more topend. I run a Novarossi 9886 pipe with a Novarossi 41032 conical manifold. The conical manifold give you back some speed to your acceleration. While giving you more topend.
