N54 Charge Pipe

Just wondering if anyone has ever used one of these before:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intake-Tur...cAAOSwq19XC04S

Seems like a cheaper alternative to the more expensive items and seeing as its just a metal pipe was wondering if there would be any issues with running it.

Has anyone tried it?

Don't scrimp on a charge pipe. If you are FBO then defo get an Evolutionwerks Chargepipe.

EBay one looks ok to be honest. I know everyobe says buy quality but they are probably all made in China or Taiwan anyways and branded afterwards. It's a metal pipe not like buying a fmic or dv

I have no idea the source of the part you are buying, how well it's made etc ?

The ER pipe I know is a quality item, that is all
