E90 N55 Filtered Air Pipe?

From my search, there appears to be no aftermarket alternative, maybe some of you can help me out.

I am currently in the process of going FBO, and to avoid cracked pipes in the future, my goal is to upgrade all intercooler/intake piping.

I ordered the VRSF 7.5" Intercooler kit, Chargepipe, Outlet, and Inlet, along with a BMS Intake. What I came to realize is that it seems the only thing left is the pipe labeled as #6 in the diagram I attached.

Does anyone know of an aftermarket/upgrade for this pipe?

Also, if I am missing anything else please feel free to chime in, any helpful input would be appreciated!

If your only concern is cracked pipes, then you don't have to worry because that pipe isn't pressurized. Just sayin

you can get an injen intake if youre that concerned about it, idk that you can find any options where they're just selling you the pipe.

No point in switching this pipe since it is used to circulate air at atmospheric pressure in the compressor inlet, meaning in no way it can crack.

While the Injen Intake replaces that pipe, it is also a fully metal pipped one, thus increasing the heat accumulation along the whole intake conduit.

Keep that in mind and proceed to what choice you think is good for you.

Good points, I'll leave it as is, thanks.

Another quick question, does the VRSF inlet/outlet require any modification? Or are they direct bolt on's?
