Jack claims your family with Gerhard. No wait that's Trevor's Uncle, right.

It'll be between 13.5 and 14.5, but you'll have to find the magic length from there. Should be pretty close there.

Ok about the same as the DA170 then. They develop peak power with a much shorter pipe but the midrange really suffers. I was told to try the 14" header on my 170 and it is fantastic. The midrange is better than on any can set up I have tried but with the extra power pipes provide.

Thank-you Trevor. That is enough information to check what I have now, and look into my upgrade.
I do like you analogy on turbines/toilets.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Thank-you Doug.
It may be next week before I get at this. There is a 100cc Extra on my garage bench that needs to go to it's real home (1hr away). It's starting to plug up my summer bench work. For the ones that slide into the Dungeon easily, if at all.
Hell, I would love to throw all those goodies together to get SukTwo flying.
