3" Elite Cold Side Pipe install.

I just installed my 3" Elite cold side pipe yesterday. Fit and finish was top notch. I went with the ceramic coated and it looks great. It went in pretty easy. I didnt have to remove the radiator support. I was able to grind on it with it on the truck still using a dremel. Pipe was a tight fit but went right in. Overall install time was about 45 min. So far I notice a little quicker spool up and a very little drop in egt's driving around town. I will let you know if EGT's drop more while towing tomorrow.

looks good.. about how much do you have to grind off the rad support in order for it to fit.. i'm thinking about getting one of these.. just to improve the flow... i dont really tow anything.. i cant even really justify getting it.. but i want one.. haha

All I had to grind was the pinch seem, so about 3/8 an inch I would say. I would do it just for the faster spool. It isnt a HUGE increase in spool, but it is noticeable.

Can you post a pic from the front where you had to grind the rad support.
