Smile Vishnu N55 Large and in Charge Pipe (Now Shipping)

Hi guys,
Finally shipped our first big batch of N55 Charge Pipes earlier today. Ended up making a couple last minute changes last week. This included:

-angle mounted methanol jet adapters (pointing upstream)
-a more durable scratch resistant semi-gloss powdercoat
-new clamps

More info and online order links HERE

And more pics:

This piece looks so much better than stock. Pending a dyno I think I'll probably be picking one up.

I don't understand why someone like Z Shift is able to retain the factory C Clips but others are not... Going with couplers is simple and cheaper but really, why? You may say its 'good enough' and won't blow off or whatever, but seriously. Who wants to deal with tighening down a silicone hose or trying to slip it on or off or deal with it at all when a simple factory c-clip will work fantastically. Don't cut the corners! Point is, c-clip CAN be designed better, do it! More things to possibly go wrong with silicone couplers.

I'll take a vband clamp or a quality silicon/t-bolt joint over the factory connector any day. But that's just me.

I have been running just a silicone on my car for 7 months at high boost and no problems at all. We dyno'd at 400 on pump, no leaks nothing! If you use quality silicone and clamps you have nothing to worry about.

We run 4 ply silicone on our race cars that push over 55psi with no blow off valve and the couplers hold just fine

This.

We run silicon couplers and band clamps on our diesel parts are they are pushing 60PSI on some models without any issues.
