I wonder if i can run my K&N off that TIP???Yes. I installed the TIP with my cobra. 27won created an option to hook up to PRL intake, stock, or 27won. They are just fucking cool like that. Plus it was smart move to be able to sell their product to people that run other intakes.
It will take some time. This one needs a lot of patience. Having a variety of lengths of extensions will help out getting the bolts that attach the tip to the turbo is important. I had my undertray off at the same time so it wasn’t a big deal if I dropped a bolt. One thing I did was use a piece of tape or plastic inside the socket to help keep the bolt in the socket when trying to install the bolts.mine will be here in a few days, how shitty is the install?? i remember taking off the stock tip for the 27won DP install, didnt like it...
It’s a very tight fit, and it can be a huge pain trying to get the bolts in on the under side of the TIP. Visibility is basically zero and you just have to feel your way through it. I picked up a magnet on a stick that helped a lot when trying to get the bolts in or retrieving bolts I dropped. Good luck!mine will be here in a few days, how shitty is the install?? i remember taking off the stock tip for the 27won DP install, didnt like it...
Question for you - I live in Michigan so also going into winter right now. I have the 27WON RMM installed currently. In the colder weather, did you notice the NVH is much louder from the RMM? Is that why you remove it for winter?I can say this.
I do have the full performance upgrades from 27won. Up until about 58,000 km (before installing the TIP) i have little to no clutch slip on the stock oem clutch/flywheel.
This includes the following: (All 27won)
- catted dp/fp
- w1 turbo
- rmm (removed for winter will be going back on soon)
Installed the TIP yesterday and in WOT I'm slipping in every gear this was just enough to put me over the top.
The motor definitely feels smoother as you have less restrictive airflow to the turbo and out the exhaust. All components are aiding in a thorough powerband.
So very soon a new clutch will be going in.
Yes the stock turbo will be restrictive and will be very minor improvement.
I'll post more pictures in my build thread.
Any motor mount would be rougher on cold start especially in colder climate. 27won probably has the most nvh in colder weather but you get used to it.Question for you - I live in Michigan so also going into winter right now.

I'd wait. It's a very time consuming job. I did my downpipe 2 times. And I'm currently holding off on installing my TIP until I figure out what DP to go with. From here. I don't want to have to take everything any more then absolutely necessary.So I’ve got a situation here…
I have the TIP and the W1 ready to be installed on my 1.5 hatch.
But I won’t be able to get it tuned properly for some time. I feel like I already know the answer but what would you guys do, wait to install both parts imminently before tuning? Or go ahead and install the TIP for now.. it obviously has to come right back out to get the turbo in…
Highly recommend upgrading to rampage titanium studs if you plan to remove the DP more than once.I'd wait. It's a very time consuming job. I did my downpipe 2 times.

Every time stuff is taken apart you increase the chances of (damage, loss of hardware ect.)
Yes it can. KTuner has a basemap for the W1. I ran mine for like 2 months before I got the custom tune. Just don’t beat or drive your car very hard until you can get a proper tune and you should be fine.I’m tending to agree.
I feel like if I’m going to do a downpipe front pipe I should do the TIP, W1, and those all together when my catback exhaust arrives…
the money factor is kinda shocking but it’s almost like if I’m ever going to start taking everything off I might as well do it all at the same time.
Can the W1 be installed and run with no tune? Obviously there will be no where near optimized gains but CAN it be done
