I decided it was time to upgrade my SMIC since it gets so ridiculously hot down here and I have some minor damage to my stock IC. Eurojet was having a sale so I picked one up for $370 shipped. I don't like replacing things unless theyre broken and I'm wondering about this pancake pipe BS. Since I upgraded the SMIC would it be retarded to not replace the pancake pipe? I feel like the pancake pipe probably performs just fine and it's just a gimmick to get me to buy another piece of piping. I'm looking to the vets for this one. Thanks.
