    HPI Savage tuned pipe?

    hey guys and gals (if any), I was thinking on purchasing the hpi ribbed tuned pipe with headers and wondering how much louder it would be compared to stock?
    I am looking for something with some gains and also a quiter pipe(meaning not too much louder over stock) so my neighbors dont shoot me. I saw some people saying they were good in other post far as power but have not seen anything about how loud it was. I wipp around in my yard in my cr85 dirtbike+hpi = Angry neighbors), so I would like something not too much loud over stock. Stock is pretty loud I think, but im just a noob with these trucks so help me out, recommendations would be greatly apprectiated. But there's a good deal on ebay for 34.98 shipped for factory hpi tuned ribbed pipe with header..good deal rite?...Would this be the right pipe for me or something quiter?

    ribbed is much louder. Dor a quieter pipe check out rd logics or ths pipe, they are about 50 bucks or so, more power and quiter...

    It is an AWESOME pipe, combine it with a motorsaver hi-flow air filter and you get a serious noticeable gain...

    That said, unfortunately it is LOUD. I personally love the way it sounds... It is noticeably louder than stock but it looks great and makes real power...

    if it the dual exhaust that is just pluming pipe stay away from them, bad for your engine and loud.

    RE: HPI Savage tuned pipe?

    Seriously, that thing KILLS power, and is loud as hell. To see what it sounds like take off your tuned pipe, just leave the headser. It HURTS your ears if you are near it...

    I heard the Hot Bodies pipe is quiter than stock and makes decent power... ...perhaps someone here has experience with this pipe?
