VRSF Charge Pipe Review

I ordered my CP and Tial BOV through Tiago @VRSF on March 17th and received my order on the 20th. I paid for regular shipping. If the fast shipping was not enough, directly after opening the box, I had questions for Tiago, and he was responding to my numerous emails in less than 10 minutes. VRSF has absolutely tremendous customer support. After getting the stock cp and dv's uninstalled, the install was a breeze. I did have a problem with the o-ring that goes between cp and bov, but a tighter fit, is better than a loose one Once installed, I took it down the road and I did have issues with the hose connecting the cp to IC. That hose would not seem to stay tight. After a lot of stretching and a new clamp from Auto-Zone, I haven't had a single problem since installation. Great price, great shipment speed, great customer service, and a well performing product.

I got the same awhile back. Took two hours from start to finish at a hobby shop. All else on car is stock. VRSF was great with the questions I had prior to order and install. Great product and service.

So jealous. I just bought a VSRF CP as well. However, the dealership called and said the clamp that connects the CP to throttle body is missing and the only way to get one is to buy the OEM BMW chargepipe. (Clamp isn't sold separately) I wonder if I can buy a clamp at autozone like you did?

Also I agree with CS from VSRF. Tiago is amazing and has been a huge help during my ordeal.

The clamp I purchased was a t-bolt. In your case, you are missing the c-clip I believe, I just read your other thread. I have read somewhere, you could rig up a New clip like supplied on the stock cp with thick enough safety wire...the clip honestly isn't some over engineered piece of equipment, it is just bent thick wire.

Enter this ,[ bmw cp to throttle body c clamp ] into the Google search in "images" and you Will see a gold bent clamp a few pictures into the search. That is what you need just from your thread you posted.

You are supposed to reuse the c clip that was with the stock cp.

The dealership is telling me they cannot find it and thinks it probably fell off when the CP broke.

This is very common. It's also true that BMW doesn't sell the C Clip to the Throttle Body Separate either.

Aside from sourcing a C Clip somehow your only other option would be to get a Charge pipe, like ETS, which uses a silicon coupler and T bolt Clamp as opposed to a C clip style.
