Aluminum turbo intercooler pipe is an upgrade for F22 228i, F30 320i/328i, F32 428i, F25 X3 28i, and F26 X4 28i with the N20 or N26 engine.
Most people are aware of the needs and benefits of a hard pipe charge pipe on the "cool" side of their turbo BMW - but what about the "hot" side that runs from the turbo into the intercooler? Evolution Racewerk's turbocharger to intercooler (TIC) charge pipe replaces that rubber factory pipe that can break under high boost. This solutions uses a lightweight 6061 aluminum which is mandrel bent for perfect fit and minimal flow restriction. Replaces BMW part #13717597591.
Although there may be a small performance benefit to this turbo intercooler pipe, the main benefit is the stronger material and better reliability be replacing a fragile rubber pipe section with a stronger aluminum version. Rubber is a good selection for an initial install but heat and chemicals will break down and weaken the material over time. There are no such worries with an aluminum version and this piece also uses all of the factory connections to the turbo and intercooler. Precision CNC machining ensures a leak free connection to the turbocharger and intercooler.
