    It makes assembly/disassembly easier, plus getting to and underneath the heat shield without having to take off the 2x12mm bolts on the compressor. I see what you mean with wanting one whole piece, though I don't mind it, I welcome the design because I hate those compressor bolts and the black gasket lol. The outside finish on the titanium is immaculate. Looks real good in person.

    Had some pulls from last night and I could go from vacuum to peak boost in 3/4 of a second. I made sure to start the pull at 4500rpm where I have my tourque set to really kick in. Below 4k it's set much lower, so it doesn't ramp up the same as if I had them set to at least 480nm

    I agree with you, I already have the eventuri intake so I think I’m gunna wait for eventuri’s CF inlet pipe.

    I suggest rampage for your needs or keep stock one cause you’ll be going through a lot of different intakes :p

    Lmao so I can sell you the rampage for dirt cheap :)

    I just this thing now with certain mods...the least parts to assemble the better...although can be a pain during install of course.

    I imagine the install of this is easier than putting the factory one back on

    I finally got around to installing mine. I was so happy after a long install, but then I realized I forgot to add the gasket.....how essential is it? I’d hate to have to take everything apart again.

    Looks nice! It's very essential. You don't want to risk having a leak after the MAF.

    I won’t drive it then, I’ll take it all apart tomorrow and add the gasket.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but the rampage inlet will work with aftermarket intake options as well as the factory factory intake? That’s great and all, but the whole point is to increase the diameter, right? As much as I dislike the d-bags at PRL’s lack of customer service department....It seems like it’s currently the best option. They seem to be smart enough to bead roll the ends, too.
    Ditching the bolts for studs is easy and will make the install a breeze.

    i did notice a faster spool so it’s definitely helping out.

    Dang man. I personally have had great experiences with PRL's customer service. I have the Rampage inlet pipe and it has an increased diameter compared to stock and it works with any intake. You don't need a bead roll with the inlet pipe since it isn't under pressure. I have a PRL HVI intake and it fits like a glove with zero chance of leaking or coming off. With that said, I think the PRL inlet pipe is an awesome piece of kit. I've considered picking one up to compare with the Rampage.

    Honestly, I’m glad you’ve had good experiences with them. I’ve been using their stuff on three gens of civics without issue until recently. I’m also not really looking to debate the bead rolling, just a personal preference.
    Anyway, did you get the inlet pipe with the tube designed for the HVI or stock?
