Default Hattori or YB Muscle pipe?

Guys, does anyone know which of the following pipes gives the most power to the OS50 Hyper? JK Hattori 50 Pipe or Youngblood Muscle Pipe.

I have a Muscle pipe but was considering changing to the Hattori after hearing some time ago that the Hattori is better for power. Anyone tried both? Got an opinion?

Either one, the SB50 isnt more powerful, if anything it lacks over the mp2 but the mp2 really needs to run at 17K to do its thing the Hatori runs better over a wider range.

Thanks guys.

I'm running my Raptor at around 1950rpm which puts it at around 16,600 rpm I think, but it doesn't sound worth changing to the Hattori by the sounds of things (although David H seemed to put them ahead in the post).

I have an SB16 on my 90 which runs very nicely. Is there a problem with fitting the Hattori to a Raptor 50 as there was talk of clamps etc? Doesn't it come with the soft mounting points like the bigger pipes? Obviously I haven't looked into the SB50 very deeply. Just thought I'd ask about the Power / Running characteristics first.

Anyone tried both and got a firm favorite?

Actually the middle clamp is the deciding factor for me to get the MP2. The hatori has a flimsy clamp that you screw to the side of the helicopter's frame.

Oh, I see. Think I'll stick to the MP2. Thanks folks.
