Default MVVS .49, mini or full pipe?

I am getting a Great Planes Patriot as soon as they are in-stock, yes a re-issue!!! and there was much rejoicing!!!

I am going to use a MVVS .49 engine for the Patriot, should I go with the full pipe or the mini pipe? How much increase in RPM should I see with the full over the mini.

Thanks in advance

bwillhite,
on mine a rear exhaust MVVS 49 i/m using a MACS pipe # 1140 with an APC 9x8 prop and 10% cool power, I'm getting 17550 on the ground . Just an awesome engine.
I'm comparing it against my DD and my Magnum.
I think it is a very good engine for any 4 lb plane
