Default tuned Pipe Help

I have a Sonic 500 with an OS 46 AX and Mac tuned pipe. Is there any info on adjusting the pipe and where to put the pressure fitting?

The position of the pressure fitting is not super critical. The one shown on the pipe in the picture is about 6" from the piston. this is for a .40 size engine, should not be too much different for a .46 size pipe. If possible try and get somebody who can weld aluminum thin wall tubing to put a blob of weld at the fitting position. This will give some thickness for the fitting to screw into. The pipe wall is too thin to support a thread. Even with a nut both sides the wall will eventually fail and the fitting will blow out.
