Does anyone have Corksport TIP on their car and how is the fit and sound. Thank you. Tony
I am running the Corksport TIP. The fit is fine and the sound is... well, noisy. You will now hear the turbo spool through the metal pipe. It sorta annoyed me in the beginning, but I got used to it after about 2 - 3 weeks. It STILL annoys the wife. For the price, remove it if you still are not happy after a month or two. And yes, I did notice an improvement in accelleration after install.Does anyone have Corksport TIP on their car and how is the fit and sound. Thank you. Tony
ALL of the TIP pipes on the market for use with stock turbo have a tapered design. The diameter at the air inlet side of the TIP is larger than the diameter of the turbo inlet, it's impossible not to have a tapered design. If you are using a CAI or SRI you will have an even larger diameter pipe before the TIP and need for even more tapering.the cp-e TIP is flawed by design. not to comment on their other pieces but the TIP has a tapered connector and a tapered TIP itself
How?by design it wants to come apart with vbrations,
I don't know what you guys had, but the one I have is a single piece of aluminumn tubing with beaded edges. No welds anywhere. I will be happy to provide pictures. Think about it, there's much more time and effort to weld a piece together then cut a tube and bead roll it, why would it be produced with a weld? Was the one you guys had used or repaired or something?the design itself as well as a very ugly weld on the connector make for huge leaks after the MAF
From Cobb's website and description of their own product.COBB uses straight connectors and a consistant diameter TIP which by simple engineering is a better design.
