    Welcome to the forum. Excuse my lack of knowledge about the Tanaka.
    If it is a 2 stroke, you could adapt a performance pipe made for a goped engine.
    It would probably require some cutting and welding.
    If you have a four stroke motor, try adapting a pipe made for a Honda GX.
    There is a subforum on this site dedicated to engine hop ups.

    Hey G, I've got an ADA pipe that was used in Tanaka 40 perfomance packs...it's not the wrap-around type, it's the "banana" pipe that cradles the engine. I will call you within the hour so sit tight.....scotto-

    Substantial....at least a poney and a half. A couple mph or so on top and better pull throughout the rpm range 250-10,000RPM.
