    I didn't mention those brands as I do not know where theirs are made. However, ECS sells FTP Charge pipes which is a company based in Taiwan.

    I do like the look of T-Bolt clamps myself. Might be something we can offer :)

    If you're staying stock turbo with stage 2 tune, is there any reason to upgrade the charge pipe?

    one of the reason to change it is that the oem charge pipe is made out of plastic.

    Plastic is also a much better for Heat. Metal piping absorbs heat much faster and takes longer to cool...

    BoostLogic has one that is included in their turbo kit. Not sure if they are selling individually.

    It'd be nice if someone made a carbon charge pipe. Increased strength with no heat soak issues.

    Stock Piping is just fine. Unless your doing some kinda time attack and running your car constantly around Road Atlanta all day.

    I can't say I've seen reports on the Bx8 platforms but n54/n55 would have our plastic chargepipes crack even under stock boost pressure and even in the warranty mileage -- not talking about 100k engine bays. Depending on the severity of the crack, it might be as minimal as a boost leak or could be as severe to throw the car into limp mode permanently until fixed. I never directly heard of it but there was fear mongering on the forums on those plastic shards going into the engine.

    BP engineering

    General knowledge is aluminum is slightly better at heat management

    Titanium tends to be stronger and lighter

    It looks cool though :love:

    The issue with titanium is that if it is welded incorrectly you are going to get stress fractures. Durability goes to shit from contamination embrittlement. I’ve done a sizable amount of industrial titanium work and the number of places that handle titanium incorrectly boggles my mind.

    The picture posted of the titanium charge pipe a few post above is of poor image quality so I hate to comment, but I will say there are some spots I’d want to go over with better pictures before ordering one.
