    Just go ahead and sign me up for the preorder. Does your shop have an extra room to sleep in? Wife is going to divorce me over my infatuation with PRL :bat::spaz:

    @PRL Motorsports do you recommend ceramic coating the aluminum elbow and titanium piping?

    There is no need to, that is why we chose these materials because of their heat dissipation properties :)

    Will powder coating this piece affect the performance?

    Most likely not as long as the powder coating isn't too thick. Too thick of a layer and it might trap some heat. It would be best to leave it bare, but I doubt you would see a major decrease in performance if you powder coated it.

    Thanks to @PRL Motorsports all my planning to do all this at one time is going to happen. This will be my 2nd time taking the bumper off and don't want to take the bumper off to many times since clips and so forth do wear out.

    The only PRL charge pipe kit and titanium turbo inlet kit (complete with hi flow intake system) in the wild for installation this weekend and testing with upcoming custom Hondata tuning...

    I think this is why people get rubbed the wrong way with you, you seem to have to mention on every product testing that it's "the only one" or "gifted to me" etc. It's kinda like saying "hahaha peasants only I can test a product". You can post about testing new stuff without all the extra attached. IDK just an observation...

    :topic:

    Can't wait till this is officially released!

    Looks great.

    Will the PRL Turbo inlet pipe kit be compatible with an Eventuri intake and their Silicone tube for those of us that already have the Eventuri?

    Will we need to remove bumper to just install the new turbo inlet pipe pieces.

    I was referring to the curved piece that goes underneath. It’s a tight fit as it is there. I knew the actual straight pipe piece wouldn’t need bumper removed lol

    That piece can be removed with the bumper in also.
