I ordered it yesterday to replace my modded OE pipe.

It's not going to improve performance, but it will look cleaner.

Yes. This is what makes all the other intakes louder than BMS; they come with an intake pipe that removes the resonator. BMS finally has their own add-on.

Will not be louder with the stock airbox. I have the William's which is the exact same silicone elbow and it made no change in sound with the stock box.

I didn't even consider the stock airbox lol. I assumed everyone was running an intake for some reason.

Bad news. I opened the package and found that the finish on the inside of the tube is cracking and peeling off in multiple places.
I emailed BMS to ask if they have a good one they can send me or if I should just return this one for a refund. Let's see what they say...

Update.
Terry at BMS looked into this and followed up with me.
He acknowledged that the one I received was defective. But, unfortunately the batch they got is already sold out, so he couldn't send another immediately. He issued a refund instead.
I still want one, so I'll have to wait until they get another batch.

Excellent customer service from BMS!

They did. And very quickly! Great customer service!
Crap happens. It's how a vendor handles it that matters. And their response couldn't have been better!

BMS got another batch and sent me a new one.
The fit and finish on this one is good. It's a keeper.
And, BMS customer service has been great!
