Best Place For a VRSF CP?

Hi guys
I read that some VRSF CP's had some fitment issues, are these resolved? I don't want to pay my shop to install it just to end up with Boost leaks.

Anyhow, id like to get my CP in relatively quickly before I go to the shop. What are your experiences with the various vendors in terms of shipping speed?

FWIW, Mine went on with no problems. The coupler that connects the two pieces could have been a tad longer but still works fine. I bought mine direct.

(I recently bought mine so not sure with fitment issues from older units.)

There aren't any fitment issues with our chargepipes. We had a couple issues where customers tried to install a RWD chargepipe onto an XI. Aside from that everything fits perfectly

Hey Tiago what is a reasonable quote in terms of labor hours for a shop to install this?

I'd say 1-2 hours depending the shop's experience with these cars.

I would get it directly from VRSF... I got mine with a coupon code their website gave me for $208 shipped!!!

Installation is pretty easy as long as you take your time and have a friend to help...

Got mine cattless and ceramic coated from Mike @ X-PH. Got it in a few days and fitment was great. Reused the turbo/DP clamp but replaced the gasket and replaced the DP/mid pipe V-clamp. Shouldn't have any issues as long as the installer takes the time to fit it properly and align it up correctly. Turbo/DP gasket can be easily damaged if not seated properly before tightening it down.

Installed my VRSF chargepipe last night, fit great.

Save yourself a lot of time and cut the OEM charge pipe in half to get it out.

Not necessary as the pipe can slowly be pulled right up the top in one minute.

Hey Tiago, to clarify a few things, the increased turbo spool and throttle response results from having a consistent 3 inch diameter coming from the intercooler to the throttlebody? From what I understand the OEM charge pipe tapers to 2.5 inches and then back to 3 inches

We offer it with free shipping, price match and you get loyalty points

There is no issues with VRSF fitment as long as you pick the correct options (drivetrain and transmission)
