    4.6 big block exhaust upgrade

    You can upgrade to a side exit pipe. In fact most performance pipes are side exit for truggies. Just turn the tip down and the pressure nipple will be on the side. Tons of trucks here set up that way.

    Steering linkage adjustment

    I have had issues with front bones popping out as well both reg and shd when the orings wear out. I put some small plastic bushings in the cups to take up the slop. I run them in the front of all 3 of my savages now. No more popping bones.

    ZR.32 Spec.4 engine in a Hpi savage 21?

    I have a stock .32 and one from neal. Both run great on the ofna 086 or nova 9886 pipe. That engine is a torque monster so a low end pipe 053 or jp1 will make it a wheelie monster that will peak and fall quickly. The top end pipes will shift the power curve towards the middle to upper rpm range.
