    MBRP charge pipe review.

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Ordered a MBRP hot side charge pipe from an ebay seller named MBRP1996 based out of Canada. Parts arrived today and I'm pretty unhappy with the quality. Flanges look like they've been cut with an angle grinder, one of the welds is subpar and looks like there's some slag in it, and the charge pipe was full of metal shavings. I've had to flush it multiple times with water to try and shake them loose as they are magnetic and stick to the pipe. I can only imagine what would have happened if I didn't check.

    The quality of this piece looks like an eBay chinesium charge pipe sold for $25.99. I wouldn't recommend one for the price and would suggest literally any other brand. Im going to use it because it will work after all the metal shavings have been flushed out, but it's very disappointing. I can only imagine what their exhaust quality is like.

    Didn't get pics of the metal shavings, there were loads. That may be okay in an exhaust system but in a charge pipe it's unbelievable.

    Installed the charge pipe today, gear clamps provided cannot hold the needed torque without stripping. Ended up having to reuse the stock ones.

    At least it looks nice. Wouldn't recommend.
