Wow finally an affordable charge pipe.

All current charge pipes are a rip off.

I believe the Vishnu does not use factory c clip either.

For what its worth that methanol bung will not work. It's way too tall. It needs to be 1/4" or shorter to allow a proper spray pattern.

Nice China knockoff.... And that meth bung will never work. Inside doesnt look to smooth either. But probably wont create any huge issues.

Yeah I don't think it will be to bad but I feel as if it will create back pressure. I'm gonna get it installed soon. Since you work with pipes I take it you know that it won't cause issues ?

Just look at the difference between the ER CP + the CX Racing CP





While they are both pipes, you'll see how the meth bungs & the TB connection are significantly different. I've never been a fan of the silicone pipe to connect to the TB since that's just another weak spot for a boost leak to develop & while I don't run meth, you've got 2 reputable people commenting on how the CX Racing meth bung is no good.

Yea it sucks spending $300 on a piece of metal when there's a $100 option out there, but you're gonna be even more pist when you find out that "budget" option doesn't even work

I've heard negative things about the stock TB connection and how that can leak during higher boost and that a silicone TB connection is a better option.

IDK about the N55 platform, but very simple logic:

Metal TB Connection w/ Rubber Gasket > Silicone TB Connection w/ NO Gasket
