Hi Terry,

I was finally able to install my charge pipe today but now I am getting 30ff code when trying to go WOT. From the sound I can definitely tell it's a boost leak and was hoping you had some feedback that could help remedy the situation. I don't want to over tighten the clamps as some of the parts are plastic and pretty brittle (i am sure you are aware of that). I noticed that when I installed the charge pipe to the throttle body the metal clip snapped into place but I still see a gap of about 3mm from throttle body to charge pipe. Could this be where I am getting my boost leak?? Tried to push this in as far as I could but it wouldn't budge. Also, one of the MAP sensor screws didn't want to go all the way down either so I had to use a washer to keep it snug. Could this also be a possible leak spot??

Any advice would be appreciated.

-Donny K

I just realized I didn't transfer the O-ring from the old charge pipe to the new one. Could that be the culprit for the leak??

That's going to leave a pretty big leak. Need the ORING!

Hi Terry,

Yeah...that makes sense. The oil residue in the old charge pipe covered the o-ring so I assumed it didn't have one. I will add the o-ring and re-test the car this weekend coming up and will write a detailed review. Thanks for the quick reply.

Got the chance to install mine last weekend and had a few observations.

Good Things:
-Black powder coating is really nice
-The welds appeared well done
-No burrs on any areas
-Silicone hoses and clamps appear to be high quality

Needs Improvement:
- The TMAP hole was too small. I had to use a dremel and enlarge the hole in order to get the TMAP sensor to fit. Measured 12.55 mm and the stock hole is closer to 12.75 mm.
- Struggled quite a while to get the main coupler on the intake manifold. Ended up dismounting the power steering reservoir so as to move one of the hoses away. Even with that it had to be in just the right position. I was able to move the reservoir back in place after securing the charge pipe to the intake manifold. Seems OK once in place. Good thing it is a hard powdercoat or it would have been scratched up much worse when I struggled to seat it.

Overall I am very happy with it. See pictures below.

I have a question about the meth bungs.... has anyone noticed that the meth nozzle is way too recessed in the CP? This has to cause atomization problems, anyone examine or modify the CP to fix this issue.

I'd personally grind them down for CM nozzles. Chinese guys are pretty tone-def when it comes to asking for fine details I've found. If we went forward with a production run of these we'd get that resolved. And good notes on the TMAP hole. I did a test fit here and it was fine but I did not test each one obviously. Maybe some variance unit to unit.

OK - this will NOT work on my z4 (2012). My CP has the fittings at almost 160 degrees apart, and the complete angle of the pipe is wrong. Here's a pic of someone elses so show you what I'm looking at:

and from ER:

So - looks like I have one of these for sale. In Dallas (Plano) if someone is local...

I'm in Fort Worth, but I don't think this will fit my 5 series. It looks like the one I just put on my 1 series but the diverter valves are on different places. Can anyone confirm?

Unfortunately these will not fit a 5 series either, in case anyone else was considering one. This holds true for most charge ***** designed for diverter valves.

I installed mine last weekend. I chose to grind the bung down so my meth nozzle would sit flush. With the nozzle installed in the bottom bung it put my meth line too close to the alternator. I am going to get a 90* adapter to eliminate the possibility of the line rubbing. Fitting the pipe to the throttle body was a bit of a struggle. It was a VERY tight fit. I definitely don't have to worry about it leaking there. I had no issue installing the TMAP sensor it was snug but with some oil on the o-ring it snapped right in. The connectors and clamps were all good quality. Overall I was pleased with the quality for the price.

Thanks Terry!

The little brass plugs for the meth bungs, should those be screwed all the way down to the bottom. I didnt want to over tighten. Mine are slightly recessed below the top of the meth bung.

Just tight enough. Don't over tighten it!

Sorry for thread bump but i couldnt see how to PM Terry. I bought one of these awhile ago and has been collecting dust in the garage till i tried to fit yesterday (stock diverter valve connection on the CP is now leaking). Turns out it doesnt fit despite grinding away with the dremel just wondering if its possible to sort out a return or an upgrade or something? Im not in the US though. Thanks

I installed mine a few months back. Had to emery the hole for the sensor but no big deal. Works great in my opinion. Throttle body fit was good. Hard to justify spending more for a bent piece of aluminum pipe for my purposes.
