I ordered the ER chargepipe from Jeff, and as he states above, you need the OEM O-ring and C-clip to seal the pipe to the throttle body. However, when I look at the diagram on there is no mention of a C-clip, just the O-ring.

I'm very confused because when I look at pictures of people's charge pipes, they definitely appear to have C-clips on there. Why doesn't Real OEM have the part listed? Are c-clips and o-rings interchangeable or do they work in conjunction with each other? If I do need a C-clip can someone please provide me a part number? Appreciate the help.
Hey, I have a stock Chargepipe sitting in my garage if you want me to bring it. There is an O-ring AND clip. Unfortunately you cannot buy that clip without buying a new chargepipe from the dealer.

someone on another post suggested this:

But we're not sure if the throttle body clip is the same size as the Intercooler ones.

You do need that clip. If you lost that clip, you might want to get a Chargepipe that does not use that clip as the interface to the throttle body. I think the Vishnu ones uses a host and clamps.
