I'm curious.
but, I would need to know a bit more about the design intentions. I DON'T want a tuned pipe that goes all the way back to my horizontal fin.

Yes, I would be interested too. A little comment on pipe layout would be great.

The manifold mounts to the engine pointing straight out.The pipe mounts to the manifold and curves toward the front at an angle to clear the canopy.As soon as it gets to the edge of the canopy it curves again heading toward the back of the helicopter above the manifold.At this point the pipe goes back 3 to 4" past the mounting point of the boom and the stinger makes a turn down,around, and points back towards the front.This is where the silencer connects to the stinger.The shape of the pipe is like a "G" allowing the exhaust to be compact.Its similar to the G-pipe made by First One tuning but more compact.Hope this helps.

Thanks Chris, I presume that the material will be aluminum, and not the Stainless Steel as comonly used in the gasser cars. Sounds promising. Do you have a target price for these pipes?
