Description

As with all intercooler hard-pipe kits, the stock rubber hoses to the intercooler are replaced with solid pipes to eliminate distortion under boost. But the devil is in the details, and that is where similarities end. The COBB EVO X Intercooler Upper Hard-Pipe Kit consists of single piece pipes made from mandrel bent aluminum tubing. The results are weld-free pipes from the turbo outlet to intercooler inlet without unsightly mid-pipe silicone hose couplings that can disrupt flow or potentially blow off under boost. The pipe diameter has increased from the stock 2.375" to 2.5", enhancing flow even further. The By-Pass-Valve (BPV) gets its own hard-pipe from the cold side of the intercooler, maintaining the factory location and orientation. Retaining this connection from the cold side ensures that cool air is fed back to the intake system when the valve is in bypass mode, preventing overheating of the air-charge post turbo. The BPV is located using a unique COBB logo bridge that connects the BPV hard-pipe to the hot side hard-pipe. The COBB EVO X Intercooler Upper Hard-Pipe kit is one of the very few that will fit with the factory air box in place (or the optional COBB SF Intake) as well as the stock front engine cover. The kit is completed with high quality COBB silicone hose couplings and heavy duty T-Bolt hose clamps to eliminate those embarrassing hose blow-offs than can occur when demanding the most from your EVO X.


Why?

The COBB Intercooler Upper Hard-Pipe Kit comes a great looking powder coated finish and now fits on GSR, MR and MRT models! This kit replaces all upper intercooler pipes and the BPV pipe with weld-free single-pipe aluminum tubing. This uncompromising kit has the most comprehensive list of performance enhancing features available. Add the precision fit and one-of-a-kind appearance and it is clear that the COBB Intercooler Upper Hard-Pipe kit for the EVO X is unequaled.

Mitsubishi Upper Hard Pipe Kit for Evo X is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks cool Purchased this kit for my Evo last week and installed it today. The kit fit pretty well, follow the instructions and you'll have it installed in 1.5 hours or so. Toughest part of the install is loosening the stock hose clamps on the intercooler as there's not much room for you to get your hand in between the radiator and the from bumper/grill. if you take off the front grill you'll have a much easier time. I can hear my evo breathing better, and can hear the turbo spooling quicker. Car is more responsive to the throttle and seems happier with these pipes installed. I also installed the Cobb high flow drop-in filter. Purchase with confidence, great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Awesome! I bought this as a Christmas gift for myself, I was amazed at the beauty and quality of the piping. It does have fitment issues that I wasn’t very pleased about, but I made it work. First off, the mounting holes on the radiator support don’t match up so I only used one bolt. The COBB fabricated bracket that bolts the hard pipe and bpv pipe was a pain to get together and bolt on. After the install, it turned out good and how awesome it makes the engine bay look. I did notice a better response throughout the power band. Even though it had fitment issues, I’m quite content with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good buy Material quality is great, couplings are really strong, powder coat is quality. I know the previous review talked about how the fit wasn't good. If the hard pipes are put in place, then the couplings, but don't tighten anything down, it does fit. You have to loosen the bypass valve clamp from the intake, so it moves freely. Also, it helps if you are replacing the intercooler at the same time - that might be why I could get everything to fit. Basically I put everything in without tightening anything. Then I put the bridge on, bolts in but not tight. I kept moving everything around little by little until things lined up. The only things that will not line up under any circumstances are the two tabs that mount to the front radiator support. They are welded on well, they are in the wrong locations - there is no way to make them work. Because of the way this installs, I would not call this a simple install until the tab location thing is fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality part, easy install Bought the Cobb UICP kit 6 months ago and the install was easy if you put everything in loose, then tighten the tbolt clamps down to 55 in- lbs. Great bov sound and better initial boost surge at lower rpms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite as expected I bought this upper hardpipe as another addition to my stage 2 evo. I liked what I read, and with the track record Cobb had, I figured it would be a great buy. The materials are excellent, as I expected from Cobb, and I was excited to put a new addition onto my car this afternoon. However, while I had all the parts and followed the instructions, things didn't quite fit as I had hoped, and how they're pictured. I tried to move some things around, or put them in in a different order, but I couldn't get things to fit right. I could only get one of the bolts that hold the hardpipe near the front bumper on, because if I put both in, there was no way I was going to connect the other end to the turbo. The pipe that goes to the BOV, also fit well, but didn't align properly. Because both of these, I couldn't get the bling Cobb logo that holds the both pipes together to fit. I love the quality, but the fitment just wasn't there on this product for me. I might rip it all out and try and redo it, but I have my doubts on getting it to fit properly, which is somewhat frustrating.
