    I dropped the radiator support when I did mine and it definitely helps. It can be done without dropping it but I think it takes more effort that way, it's easier to just drop it and get the extra clearance.

    Just out of curiosity, I wanted to hook up the MAPtap and run my Synapse valve off true vacuum for a few days just to see what difference it would make. I grabbed these pics a few days ago when I was making the changes.

    The CP-E MAPtap is actually a pretty great little adapter. Install is super simple, fitment is just about perfect, and since it uses standard 1/8NPT threads I was able to keep my push lock vacuum line fittings! My BOV vented exactly like it should have so the MAPtap was definitely doing its job. Overall, a very nice alternative to the symposer delete kits for tapping into a true vacuum source.







    Make sure you install the silver screw BEFORE installing the MAP sensor otherwise it won't fit.

    Updated the first post with some more pictures of the CP-E pipe after a week of driving with it. So far, it fits perfectly with absolutely no rubbing or fitment issues of any kind. Really sad that I spent so much money/time/effort on that JBR pipe when the CP-E is perfect out of the box.

    Well, I sent JBR a formal notice requesting a refund for the purchase price of both charge pipe kits ($398). Let's hope that they can be reasonable about this and process my refund without any unnecessary grief or headache. I will be sure to update this thread with the results of my refund request.

    Well it's been almost a month and @[email protected] has yet to even acknowledge my request for a refund. Not sure who to contact or how to even get a response out of them at this point. Such a disappointment.

    @psilynt bummer about JBR's lack of a response. Not cool on their behalf.

    However, do you have any complaints on the JBR Hot pipe? I picked one up new/used for a steal of a price, but haven't installed it yet. Should I look elsewhere?

    I wrote a short review of my thoughts on the JBR hotside here. The short version is that I ended up removing and replacing the JBR hot side due to their mounting bracket design being quite flawed. The design allowed the pipe to sag and bang around.

    Finally got to speak to someone at JBR after 2 months of trying to contact them for a refund through both email and phone. I got to speak to James himself, whose apparent only interest in contacting me was to chew me out for painting his company and products in such a negative light. He clearly started the conversation out with a bone to pick, he interrupted me numerous times, cursed at me, made sure to call CP-E products "garbage", and eventually hung up on me when I gave the ultimatum that we were going to talk about a refund or the conversation was over. I tried multiple times to give clarity around the issues I had but he refused to hear any of it. When I offered to send him datalogs to prove my claims, his response was, and I quote "datalogs don't mean ****, you could manipulate them". He obviously had absolutely zero intention of issuing any sort of refund and was quite simply just upset with me. I wish I would have thought to record the call because I am absolutely blown away that the owner of a company would behave in such an offensive manner.
