Turn up the boost with a tune and find your factory F10 535i charge pipe break apart? Fear not! The solution is here! Replace it with a higher flowing, stronger aluminum charge pipe. Made of 6061 high grade aluminum, this will never happen again, backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty!
Often ignored, charged intake airflow characteristics greatly affect throttle response, turbo lag and ultimately maximum power potential. Smooth bends and minimal obstructions are ideal. 6061 aluminum (lightweight) mandrel bent piping was used to ensure smooth transitions. The upper pipe features 3" piping to match up to the factory throttle body (factory pipe is 2.5"), ensuring maximum flow without obstruction.
- Increase throttle response and decreases turbo lag.
- Lightweight High Grade 6061 Aluminum Piping.
- Throttle body matched 3" piping.
- Precision CNC machined throttle body flange ensures leak free connection and retains factory style o-ring.
- Precision CNC machined MAP sensor flange ensures leak free connection.
- Optional Type III Hard Black Anodizing (for stealth and OEM look). Hard anodizing helps improve durability of intercooler piping. Resists bent or dented piping.
- Includes all hardware for complete installation.
- Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Many competitive products use a silicone hose connection for the throttle body connection. It is not designed for a silicone hose connection which is used by other brand diverter valve pipe upgrades. The throttle body lip is too short and there are no "beads" to prevent the silicone hose from blowing off under boost. Even though it is the easiest way to upgrade, it is not ideal. The best way to connect the new diverter valve pipe to the throttle body is to replicate the stock connection.
The ER 535i N55 Charge Pipe is available in 3 finish options: Mirror polish, brushed silver aluminum, or Type III Hard Black Anodizing. An added benefit of the Type III Hard Black Anodizing is that it hardens the aluminum piping and makes it even more durable.
Two 1/8" NPT threaded bungs (for methanol or nos injectors) are included. This allows quick and easy installation of methanol/nitrous injectors. Each 1/8" NPT bung comes with plugs so that you can run with or without the methanol injector. This is perfect for those who do not have the Methanol Injection yet but plan to do so in the future.
This chargepipe is for all 2011-2016 F10 535i/535xi, F06-F13 640i, 2009-2013 F02 740i, and 2009-2014 X5/X6 35i models. The factory pipe is 2-piece and this will replace the upper portion. It includes a new silicone adapter (not shown in picture). The lower portion is not prone to failure.
A new c-clip connector is recommended and sold separately.Notice of Emissions Non-Compliance.
