You need to give everyboby the real story dan.
I gave this kid a nearly new os 55 engine, GAVE, he installed it in his heli, ran fine with his align 50 pipe, more power than he ever had, his words, ran fine for a couple of weekends, then he had a fuel starvation issue at the field engine would not rev above about 30%, couple of folks there said looks like your clutch was slipping, I have seen and had slipping clutches dan your clutch was not slipping.
Then i get a pm that there is something wrong with his 50 pipe and he needs a 55 pipe because the engine won't hold a tune.
Well i said your in luck because i just bought another pipe for my ys 56 to see if there was any more power to be had, you can have the one i am running now.
That GP pipe you have now dan ran on that 55 for me for at least a year making plenty of power and then has been on my 56 pulling 620 blades with no problem, both engines held a tune.
Just because some idiot told you the GP pipe is not the correct pipe for the 55 you now assume that because your engine is not running right it is the pipes fault.
Pipes are made the way they are for a reason by people way smarter than you, you had a fuel problem and hurt the engine, FIX THE PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE.
By the way, pipe wet sanded flat on glass with 600 grit paper, need only a tiny amount of silicon, you have way to much silicon on that pipe, try a new plug first.
