I’m looking to buy a HPV/KPV #4 exhaust. I currently have a #2 (Hortsman 2) on my kart and I now understand I’m leaving off some HP’s with this pipe. Where can I locate one of these pipes for my kart? Thank you in advance.
Just to note, the 4 pipe isn’t really that much faster. It gives more top end and mid-range but reduces bottom-end power. Plus, it requires you to spin more RPM and wears out engines quicker.
It’s fun and it sounds cool, but as far as actual pace, it it’s only a tiny bit quicker than the 2. The 3 pipe might be a better compromise, as it doesn’t really reduce bottom-end that much but gives more top-end and doesn’t require a bit jump in RPM to get it to work.
Thank you for that insight, TJ. With that advice I guess I’ll be looking for the 3 pipe. I find it interesting that I really can’t locate one on the internet.
Going to be hard to find one now that no one runs HPV anywhere. Best bet is probably going used, I know people used to have quite a few used spare pipes sitting around. I personally got rid of all mine long ago.
That’s why I thought it’d be a lot easier to find since no one is really running them. I’ll keep on searching and I’m sure I’ll find it.
It’s kind of dead but maybe the EKN for sale forum? Put something up in the wanted to buy category?
