Performance Basics 1: Get That Charge Pipe Upgrade!

Performance Basics 1: Get That Charge Pipe Upgrade!

Getting your hands on one of earth’s top technological marvels has got to be one of the most awe-inspiring feelings in the world. BMWs are smart, elegant, and sensational. But what derails it from its beauty is its charge pipe. The brittle, failure-bound, plastic charge pipe. Surrender it to heat, air, environment, and oil and watch it pop in no time, whether at stock boost level and especially higher.

Not the cleverest idea.

Unless you want the towman doing the driving for you tonight ;)

 

Charge Pipe

The charge pipe or, as some prefer, the chargepipe, is part of the piece connecting your intercooler with your engine. It serves the function of transmitting charge air into the car engine. Relentingly, the factory plastic charge pipe cracks under continuous pressures, causing boost leakages and breakdowns.

That is why an upgrade charge pipe scores big points. Besides improving throttle response and stunting turbo lag, it acts as a preventive maintenance item for future mods. Thankfully, you can let Masata solve these problems for you. With Masata’s generous investments in research and technology, the Masata charge pipe is easily one of the best decisions you can make for your Bimmer.

Perks of Masata Charge Pipes:

1. Long-term performance

2. Lightweight

3. Large diameter

4. Superior insulator

5. Lifetime warranty

Masata’s best features are its long-lasting aircraft grade aluminium body, OEM mounting system, 1/8" NPT meth bung, and CNC machined flange. Aluminium is a good conductor of heat and thus cools itself, conserving the pipe from corrosion. Besides that, it is lightweight and far more durable than plastic. What more, the charge pipe’s large diameter creates room for more and cleaner airflow.
