N55 Charge pipe

Iíve read a lot of posts on different charge pipes for the N55. I couldnít find information on whether or not the ER CP has an advantage with the engine mount support bracket. Seeing that it is utilizing the C-clip connector to the TB, would this not remove some of the lateral play (if any)? Anyone with ETS or CP-E have position support issues? Is the ER CP pipe worth almost $100 more than ETS?

I have the BMS one I think it's the CT-S. Works perfectly fine. No issues since I installed it.

The ER and BMS CPs use the factory mounting which IMO is far superior to the silicone coupler style that is used on the ETS pipe. It is also much more expensive to make the pipe with the OEM style connection so that is the reason they are more.

The ER N55 CP starts at 245.00 or so, so its not much more expensive then the ETS.

I had ETS and it work great. ER start at $245 but if you want black then ad more $
For me the ETS worth the money for $199 shipped and i just ordered my second one fitment perfect and good for future IC upgrade if you want ETS IC too. ER are great product but ETS worth well the money spend
