Default Pipe comparison?

Hi,

Is there a difference in the performance between the black steel pipe to the chromed pipe? Or is it only their look.

Thanks,
Tom

You'll want that jetpro. Almost anyone who knows about the two will pick that chrome jetpro for performance

I have the black one and am very happy with it on my FG MT. It is well protected by the body and large rear wheel and doubt I could ever damage it which is why I chose it. I am sure the chrome larger one would give even better performance but would no doubt bash the thing if it hangs out beyond the rear of the truck or above the roll bar.

Hi thank you all,

It is an FG pipe in the pic, the thing is that I am pretty sure that the chromed pipe will be better and with higher performance, the issue is: does it worth the extra $$$? is there a big difference between them?

Sorry for the ignorance, but way does a pipe increase so much the power of the engine? Is it the pressure?
