Sorry to bump an old thread but I can't create one yet. Does anyone know of a parts shop local to Austin? My charge pipe blew up and I need to buy an aftermarket one.

Don't know any that would stock an aftermarket CP for an N54 engine - they would most likely have to order it from the vendor of your choice. It's possible that Cobb might have one, but you might end up better off ordering one with fast shipping via an online website. ER is one that I had very good luck with.

Evolution Racewerks...they have some very good equipment, including chargepipes. I had one of their "sport" oil coolers on my previous E92. Another good source is Extreme Turbo Systems, but there are several good vendors, all of whom have online stores. I really can't think of anyone that would stock that kind of part, since there are several versions depending on your car's model year, etc.

Thanks. I went ahead and got a charge pipe from ER. They rushed it out just in time to get it today.

I've got a brand new in the box Ultimate Racing Charge Pipe with the Tial BOV fitting (I don't have a BOV though).

It's this exact one here: http://www.ultimate-racing.com/xcart...&cat=32&page=1

I'd be willing to let it go for $200 if anyone was interested.

I have the ER charge pipe installed and it works great. I'm just running stock DVs though. The trick is if you lost your C-Clamp, it's a pain to get a new one. You either have to find one used or buy an entire stock charge pipe assembly for ~ $197. Another option would be anything that uses a silicone coupler instead of the clamp.

Along the same lines, does anyone know where to get E85 in Austin? I searched online and saw that there was a station off Parmer and I know there's also one in Buda. I live downtown so if there's anything closer, please let me know.

Also, does anyone have a coding cable I can use to do the Alpina tranny flash? (That sounds really dirty)...

I'm at Midtown Commons at 183/Lamar, so northside works for me. Thursday is as good a night as any..

PS - MS6 to 335i, your location still says Plano.

Also, anyone have a DCAN to USB cable I can borrow for my Alpina flash?
