That extra piece is useless, you won't need it anymore.

Looks like I'm all set with the CP install but I did have one last question and that was regarding the OEM vacuum hose/BOV connection. I can barely get the OEM vacuum line onto the Tial nipple. I'd say I'm about a 1/4" if that on the nipple. I tried heating up the line for additional movement but this thing isn't budging.

EDIT: I went out today and purchased a larger diameter vacuum hose but I'm not sure if I can pull the OEM hose out of the manifold without damaging something. Any advice?

As M3 Adjuster will attest, my charge pipe exploded during an autocross this morning. Is the ER pipe still the best aftermarket solution? The stock pipe literally separated just below the clamp, so there was no way to fix it without a replacement part.

ER plus CP-e and AA (I believe) all attach to the throttle body using the same c-clip as the factory piece -- as opposed to a silicone coupler like the other designs.

I have the ER.

The ER CP will address that issue, go for it. The problem in that photo isn't the C-clip blowing off, but the plastic splitting.

Correct, the c-clip is still fastened. As many others have reported, the plastic pipe just doesn't tolerate the boost and simply breaks away.

Thanks for the responses.

ER is great. They even customized my pipe to angle the BOV flange a bit more upright for a better fit with my DCI's. Great customer service.
