D&D pipes are $230 less but make 7 less HP would you spend the extra 230 for the 7HP gain? Also the speedwerx operate at about 200 rpm less so they would probably be easier on the motor.

I know the D&D pipes are a good dependable product anyone have any experience with Speedwerx?

I bought a Speedwerx can last year but they recalled it. It took them awhile to address the problem, so I got my money back and moved on to another manufacturer. On the other hand, I've heard their pipes are good, and yes I'd spend $230 to bolt on 7HP...in a heart beat!

When I can afford it I think that I will go with Speedwerx. Pipes should put me in the low 190's add the Torqueline head and I should have a nice reliable 200HP sled.

A good friend of mine has the HPC pipes on his T-cat. They are rated at 19hp. Right now he is using the stock silencer amd they are not loud at all. Have a real nice sound to them. He paid $650 for them.

I am sorry I told you the wrong brand on those T-Cat pipes. The brand is CPR. He's made pipes for Black Magic for years and just started selling them himself. His name is Jeff Simon.Here is his website.

These pipes have been extensively tested on the T-Cat and he can tell you the exact setup you'll need for max performance.also these pipes perform the best with the stock silencer.

I picked up a set of D&D pipes from my local dealer for $550 + shipping. No one could touch the price. They don't make the biggest HP gains but they will add 10-12HP and I dropped some weight off the front end. Once I get it dialed in with the Heavy hitters it should be making good use of the 185 or so HP it makes. I know that if I was trying to make some big HP gains I should have gone with different pipes, but I haven't ever really been unhappy with the amount of power the sled had stock. Main reason for the swap was weight. Between the pipes and can I dropped 20lbs off the front end.

Cool!! Just wanted to correct myself so you didn't end up with a dead end search for the other ones.

Thanks,
I actually talked with Jeff before I bought my pipes. He would have been my next choice. It was obvious talking to him that he knew what he was talking about.
