Default need k & b 7.5 tuned pipe

Im looking for a used (in good condition) tuned pipe for a k & b 7.5 outboard.
If anyone has one they are willing to part with or knows someone who has one I am very interested.
Thanks
John

John, watch ebay. Just saw two end last week. One was a Garcia and the other a Aerotech J-pipe.

Hey OB Nut

What is the best pipe for complete top end speed? Any links?
Would you happen to know make/model of the tunnel in my gallery?

Thanks a lot,
Ryan

As for pipes, everyone has their opinion on what works the best. I've got a good collection of Garcia OB pipes. Recently picked up a Cooper 3.5 pipe waiting to be tested. Just bought a Rossi OB with a Rossi pipe on it. I've never run a Rossi or used a Rossi pipe, it will be interesting to see what this motor/pipe does. Also on order are SPP carbon fiber pipes (3.5 and 7.5). HTB makes the Silver Bullet pipes, which the new 3.5 HP pipe is supposed to be the new pipe to use.

Off hand, don't know what your boat is. It's not a Dumas Hot Shot. Give us some clues.. ABS, fiberglass, wood?? Any more pics without the cowl would surely help.

In case it makes a difference, its a Lap Cat II with a K 7 B 7.5 that I have had for years. Looking for more performance.
Thanks
John

I believe the Dumas Hot Shot is made from wood, this is ABS. I bought it used and have currently owned it for three years. I was able to dig up a few gear setup pics.
