- Charge Pipes
When it comes to turbo charged engines that come from factory with restrictive plastic charge pipes, you most definitely will have to look at upgrading your charge pipes when increasing boost and look at maximizing airflow. Under heavy load, the OEM charge pipes are prone to break, which in the best case scenario slow you down or just require you to replace them. Worst case, debris is going into your charge air cooler or turbo causing damage.
There are multiple variants from silicone, aluminum to carbon fiber or titanium to name a few. Powder coated, polished, chromed or painted to your personal liking.
If you plan to run Methanol, Alcohol or even Nitrous Oxide in the future, you may want to look and option for charge pipes that provide a bungs to inject and or read/boost and avoid having to upgrade once again down your modding road.
