Help: E82 N55 Boost pipe/charge Pipe

Hi guys

Does anyone know where or who can supply a N55 E82 Boost pipe made from aluminium. This is the pipe coming from the turbo to the intercooler.

Cheers

When you place your order,.... make sure you select "BOV type" as None-N55. You will see the drop down menu. Happy hunting.

He is talking about something else, if I am not mistaken.

It's called the hot side intercooler pipe. And no. No one makes one. All of the aftermarket intercoolers either use the factory connection, or they use clamps and a rubber connector.

I'm pretty sure TW make those... They don't show one on their website but Peter@TW showed me what he made up for his M2 killer project(N55 engine)... Ask Peter if he can get you one. They won't be cheap though. Plus TW can ceramic coat the pipe for added performance.

I must concur that the "hot side" intercooler stock pipe is a weak part made out of rubber, and is not up to spec compared to the rest of my upgraded intake parts (ER FMIC and ER CP).

Im curious as to why has no FMIC manufacturer are offering a sturdier replacement for this part bundled in their FMIC kit...

My intercooler came with a replacement. It's a piece of reinforced Silicone that connected the intercooler to the metal pipe coming off the turbo. I know I connected it to a piece of metal pipe because i sliced my finger open on it lol.

Edit, I see the piece you are referring too. To my knowledge, no one makes a replacement. Though it looks like it would be easy to produce. you can see it here with the factory intercooler connector.

I stand corrected - my recollection was that the stock pipe off the turbo was plastic or rubber. I vaguely remember that it seemed weak and I was careful when tightening the sturdy T-clamps (supplied with ER FMIC) onto it ...

I've also been looking for a replacement for this. The OEM part is also ridiculously expensive for some reason.

I too am looking for a replacement. I continue to have a leak on that side under high boost (23-25 psi)
