MBRP CAC tube

I heave read a few complaints about fit and I know some grinding is necessary but the price is right. With MBRP15 code, I can get it for under $150 and it sure looks nice. Does it go in without having to remove the radiator support? Can anyone recommend this product.

They had a few issues early on, but that has since been corrected. We have not had any issues with them since. For the dollar spent, it is a great option that installs without too much hassle.

I just installed Elites pipe yesterday. Fit and finnish was great and went in pretty easy. I didnt remove the rad support to grind on it. I used a dremel and ground it down. Only took about 5 min with a grinding wheel to get it to where the pipe slid in. I did loosen the rad support to give me some wiggle room to get the pipe through, but that is still easier than completely removing the support. You can get it for $129 for the normal pipe or around $150 for the shiney ceramic coated. Just another option for you. Free shipping on orders over $100 to.

Yes a dremel worked well. Not as fast as other methods, but faster than taking the support off to be able to use an angle grinder.
