Re: Which Franspeed pipe do I go for?

Jim have a look at the scootering test on TS1 pipes. That should give you a good idea. Knowing you I would say go for the Franspeed Race but your right 4.6 probably wont be suitable. John will have a good idea before dynoing where the engine will make peak power so will be able to advise you what t...

JB should have a fresh batch of both pipes in early next week so I'll pick his brains then and book in for a dyno session.

That's pretty much the same setup as the TS I'm putting together. I'm going to run it with my RS clubman.
I'd rather a expansion pipe than a clubman - kinda goes with the style of the scooter !

I took my T5 down to JB and we dyno'd it against a Taffy and a Scorpian and guess what won? - Harry's pipe. Even JB was suprised/impress...
