I am not sure about the TT pipe, but the MP5 "Stick Banger" pipe makes better midrange power than the standard MP5 with the TT53. I was much happier with the new pipe especially with mid-range power.

I just did back to back testing today with the above mentioned pipes. I went from an MP5 to the Redline 3-d pipe. I noticed a significant power increase. I ended up around 6 or 8 clicks richer on the main and about 10(give or take) degrees richer on the low needle than with the MP5, but the midrange and top end seemed very powerful. The engine "cleans out better' on pitch pumping stuff, and seems less likely to bog. I cant give any reference to the MP5 SB, as I havent used one, but the Redline pipe is a definate improvement for the TT53.

I'm running the MP-5 on my Redline and am honestly thinking of going with the SAB-50 from Hatori. The MP-5 seems to bog on the top end an I've heard better reports from folks using purpose built Redline .53 pipes.The only people who truly know where the edge lies, are those who have gone over.

The SAB 50 runs really well too. One of the guys at the field is using it.
We have 2 53's on Redline high flow pipes,
2 on Outrage pipes,
1 on the Hatori.
1 of mine formerly on an MP5

I have flown them all, and I can tell you they all work really well.
My gut tells me that the Redline high flow is slightly better, but that is on my own machine, and I just switched.
be sure to add your opinion of the Hatori if you go that way.

BTW where are you flying in Livermore? at the field on the north side of 580?

The TT pipe worked the best for me and the Align pipe is tuned for the 50 which was lacking some for the TT53 as the 53 needed more flow to make the hp come out if it.Oh what a feeling 3D Flying can be

If you're asking me I'll have to pass to SC Raptorman, I dont have any experience with Align pipes at all.

I didn't try the mp5 but I went from the Funtech A-385, that I thought it was a very nice combo, to the Redline pipe and its like a day and night! The pick and midrange power with the TT pipe is awesome! The engine recovery is by far faster...

I am running the 53 with a MP Stick Banger pipe. Althought my motor is not screaming at all it has a ton of power. In fact my motor runs the best if it runs real cool. Most of the time when I check the temp if I am even close to being over 170 degree farenhiet on the motor it just completely has no power.
Another guy I fly with has a 53 with the high flow pipe and he runs his motor at a much higher rpm and leaner setting. If you ask me I would rather have it running cool and constantly making power. In fact most time I only have to give it a click or two either way depending on the day. I'm very happy with the Stick Banger pipe. Oh and my head rpm is not much over 1950.
Carpe Diem!!!
