Why do you need to upgrade the N54 charge pipe for your 335i? The OEM BMW charge pipe is a ticking time bomb for any N54 335i running higher than stock boost. Its plastic design will adequately hold the boost on stock settings, but on tuned cars it is prone to bursting. In addition, the OEM diverter valves are another component not designed for high-boost and can leak boost, limiting the power your 335i can put down. Don’t wait until yours breaks to upgrade this critical component of your N54!
The ARM N54 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 ARM N54 Charge Pipe has an integrated blow-off valve flange designed for the 50mm TiAL Q BOV (BOV sold separately). Most importantly, it will ensure that all of your boost makes it into the engine to maximize power output from your 335i/xi. For those of you looking to retain the OEM Diverter Valves check out our N54 Charge Pipe with OEM DV’s.
The design of this charge pipe will fit the stock intercooler or any aftermarket intercooler that bolts up to the stock charge pipe.
