Charge pipe for diverters?

Anyone know of an upgrade to our charge pipes to work with the diverters. I ordered the forged diverters, but i dont think they come with the piping. Ive noticed the stock pipe is not as big as my AA bov pipe, and its pinched a bit. Any company make this pipe to work with our diverters?? thanx dudes

All of the intake piping from the turbos is pretty much the same size as the charge pipe so i dont think upgrading it will do much of anything. I simply got a 2 1/4" samco tube with a 45 degree bend in it and removed the flimsy rubber off of the oem charge pipe and put that one on. It is much more durable and does not pinch. My oem rubber tube was pinched more than 50% beause the piping from the spearco FMIC is longer than oem and caused the bend in the tube. Marty at MSDS Inc. found the pinch and suggested the samco tube.

Here ya go...
www.silhoses.com/distributors.asp

if the link does not work, go to silhoses.com and scroll to their distributors section. They are a Samco dealer.
I got all of my Samco stuff @ SEMA, they swapped me their stuff for some of our stuff

The pinched hose , if not dealt with, will eventually crack itself open .
