Why do you need a charge pipe for your 335i? The OEM BMW charge pipe is a ticking time bomb for any N55 335i running higher than stock boost. Its plastic design will adequately hold the boost on stock settings, but on tuned cars its failure is inevitable. Don't wait until your driving home in limp mode to upgrade this critical component of your N55!
The ARM Motorsports N55 charge pipe is designed to handle the highest levels of boost. Constructed of 6061 aluminum, the ARM N55 335i charge pipe connects to the throttle body using a precision CNC machined connection which is secured by the OEM metal C-Clip. It also includes an upgraded O-Ring for a secure and leak-free seal.
The ARM N55 Charge Pipe is engineered to optimize airflow between the intercooler and the throttle body. To further increase the performance of your 335i, there are two hookups for either methanol or nitrous which come pre-capped. For reconnecting your factory TMAP sensor, there is a CNC machined flange for perfect fitment with new bolts to replace the course threaded factory screws.
The design of this charge pipe will fit the stock intercooler or any aftermarket intercooler that bolts up to the stock charge pipe.
Vast improvement over the stock pipe that exploded! I did have to shave the original screws that held the maf sensor as the originals were longer than what the new pipe was drilled for. No biggie...quick turn with the old dremmel and all was fine. Was also a little concerned that this did not have the mid mounting screw and bracket...but it fit fine with very little wiggle on the pipe. All in all only took about an hour to get it in. I recommend it.
Item was delivered on time and quality is as to be expected
Was gonna buy this through Amazon but it ended up being cheaper buying it directly even with 2 day express shipping
This charge pipe is excellent quality and fits perfectly. The wrinkle black finish is a great touch as well. Don???t waste you money on all those other higher priced competitor CP???s, get ARMED!
Awesome quality and fitment i was worried about making this purchase because my charge pipe recently failed at 10k miles and i needed a replacement fast but i did not know where to purchase it from but I'm super glad i got it here
