    The first pipe is the one manufactured for reed motors.

    Re: 550 reed half pipe

    Yes the top photo is a reed specific half pipe. It has the lord mount, is slightly fatter at the bend and I believe 1" shorter/longer. Can never remember which. The piston port specific pipe is more fluent in the bend area and no lord mount. Either pipe will work on either engine however as they will bolt right up. There's just a slight difference in performance using the correct pipe. As stated, use the correct gaskets and if installing the reed pipe on the reed engine, it is stated in the directions from Factory to change all three gaskets as they are a different thickness as the OEM ones and need to be equal throughout the exhaust.

    I got the right gaskets. I ordered all three from the factory performance company there cheaper from the link above but I like having the right stuff.
