Charge pipe question. PLEASE HELP

You can ridicule me as much as you'd like. All I ask is for enlightenment as well. I have an 09' 335d(North American version) I'm preparing for a JR 2.8 tune. Which includes deletes,ATM exhaust,a wagner evo 1 ic and turner intake. I've read that I need a charge pipe. AA or VRSF brand. My question is: all I can find are charge pipes designed for relocated intake, which I haven't done or is that what an aftermarket intake is? A relocation?


Like I said- you can call me every name in the book, but please, help me out. I can't move forward until I figure this out

I assume you mean these? the standard pipes are prone to leaking boost hence need to upgrade especially when adding upgraded parts and tuning

So just the connections need to be upgrades, not the pipe itself?

I'm not sure you can do one without the other

Doesn't the EVO I use stock clip connectors?

Yes. Evo 1 utilizes stock clips. All over the forums, everyone is referencing "charge pipes" so here I was, looking for the actual pipe when it's the connecter that's the problem. Solution is an intercooler(ATM) that not only utilizes a more secure connection, but also, provides those connections. Although the ic is a couple hundred more than wagner, you end up saving $ by not having to pay for the upgraded ATM turbo outlet, elbow kit, sales tax and shipping fees. At least I think I'm on to something. Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm about to cancel my wagner ic order and get an ATM

Make sure you can find an ATM in stock before cancelling anything..
