If you plan on doing those mods.... I would recommend the Charge Pipe upgrade for sure, no question asked.

Do you guys feel an increase in performance or power when installing an aftermarket charge pipe ? Thanks in advance.

No power gains should be expected from an aftermarket chargepipe, unless yours is leaking of course.

Once you tune and increase boost, the stock one may fail more quickly as it was designed for lower pressures, so this is where an aftermarket one can come in handy.

Agreed. I have an ER Charge Pipe, and OCC is on the way. Just search around of pictures of stuff people have found in theirs and you will be convinced to get one.

It prevents oil from getting into the pressured turbo plumbing,which can lead to couplers coming off during boost.

It will extend the life on your engine as the catch can will collect oil,moisture and blow by gas to keep the intake components clean.

I dont think so. The only way to extend the oil change intervals is using a quality fully synthetic oil, like Castrol Edge, Red Line,Royal Purple,Pennzoil Platinum or similar. I personally use Castrol Edge With Titanium. I do my oil change intervals in my 135i, at 3/3.5K miles, but you can go to 5-6K miles and you will still be on the safe side,I just like my oil to be always as fresh as possible,it all depends on your driving style.
