ER charge pipe/ETS intercooler

Hey guys was hoping someone could help me out! I have a ER charge pipe on my 07 E93! However it is the short version I just ordered a ETS intercooler! My question is can someone help me and let me know what size and length silicone coupler I could use to replace the stock elbow! I would not want to purchase the Stett elbow due to I have 2 bungs for meth on the ER CP!! Kind of looking for something more affordable!! However I looked all over and can't seem to find it I just want to be sure of the size and length!! Thanks! Again!!

Doesn't the ETS come with all of the new piping to connect to charge pipe? I could be wrong.

My 5"ETS ic was direct replacement...... No additional parts needed. Everything you need should be there

Cool so it comes with the silicone peace to replace the rubber elbow pipe? The one with the metal ring?

The ETS includes the intercooler, hot side coupler, cold side coupler & lower charge pipe.

The ETS kit, as well as every other kit does not include the silicone coupler you need to go from the ER charge pipe to the ETS lower charge pipe

Shouldn't he be able to use whatever he is currently using to connect to the OEM lower chargepipe?

Yes, but I think he want to get rid of the stock crappy accordion elbow.

I guess I misunderstood what OP was asking. Carry on.

The OP wants to get rid of the stock rubber elbow. Im not sure how that can be done without buying a new charge pipe or a Stett Elbow.

Otherwise the ETS intercooler will mate to the stock rubber elbow.
