Default Source for Tuned Pipes for Pusher Setup/Engine ?

Wondering where to purchase those special small tuned pipes (with the exhaust reversed) that are used on pusher (prop) setups. My plan at this time is to use it on an OS 75AX or an OS 91 FX. Thanks. Bob

Weston UK has pusher tuned mufflers.

Jett offers the 60-90 size jett-stream configured for pusher use as well.

Here's the link to Weston UK.
http://www.westonuk.co.uk/index_161.htm

The US distributor is JD Enterprises.

You will want the Byron (pusher) version for a 91 engine.

the "normal" exhaust opening is closed off. Just exits aft.
