And one can over pay for something that is of equal or better/worse quality. Just as some have engine issues, some will have aftermarket CAC problems regardless of the cost of the item..

Also, buying the name doesn't make it better as we are now seeing the radiators by the same company.

That is correct no lubrication needed. I believe they are multi layer silicone.

The Rudy's is multi-layer silicone also but without the Mishimoto name/part number imprint. The tube in yours looks identical to the tube in mine. Maybe same Chinese company made them for Mishimoto and Rudy's? hummmmm

I would not be surprized if they are from the same factory.

No doubt, Larry. I like Dirt. Just keeping the peace, brother. I just thought it was interesting he didn't need lube for the pipes. Mine were a b!tch.

I finely broke down and ordered my kit from Rudys. I guess I'm on borrowed time.

What I should have said was, that is why you bought that life insurance policy.

Another comparison is I installed the AFE kit back in 2017, and while I wouldn't say it was easy to install the couplings, I don't recall using any Windex or other substance to help. The AFE kit is also around $300. I paid $295 two years ago, and it's $308.75 on Amazon now.

If I had to do it again, I'd go this route. That aluminum piece and the one piece silicone pipe.



No doubt Mishimoto makes good stuff. So you didn't need any lubrication at all to get your pipes into the boots? Nice. They have to be silicone, correct?

No doubt you get what you pay for and the cheapest isn't always the best. I do like that lifetime warranty though. We didn't get that with the Rudy's. Opinions are welcome here and very common. No worries...
Yes, I'm going with the H&S one that looks identical to the SPE pretty much, I've had great dealings with HSM in the past with parts and service, they have even pointed me in the direction of other brands and manufacturers when their product line didn't fit the needs of whatever we were looking to do.
