Charge pipe

So I finally hit the limits of my charge pipe. Started getting boost leak codes/limp mode recently in hard acceleration. Anyone local have a decent aftermarket one theyd wanna sell me? I don't have a preference on brand or bov/dv at this point. Just want to stop getting codes.

On a very slight tangent, any experienced modders have recommendations for brand and preference with explanation on bov vs dv?

Thanks guys!

How do you know it's the chargepipe? Did you do a pressure test yet. You'd be surprised on where is leaks from.

My leaks were the IC couplers and box seals (rubber o-rings in CP). I fixed them all easily.

I can see where the charge pipe is loose on the intake (? - toward the firewall) with the crappy o-ring clamp. there is at least a quarter of an inch of movement where the rubber pipe is moving on the aluminum facet.
