    S3 charge pipe

    Anyone got any ideas where I can get a de-silenced charge pipe? Are they commercially available or will it be a DIY job?

    If a DIY job, anyone got a spare one kicking about?

    Just something I want to do mate to be honest.

    The metal charge pipe that comes out of the turbo, and around the engine and then changes to rubber hose off to the first intercooler is the one in question.

    The 'lump' for the want of a better word, that is on this pipe directly after the turbo is a silencer (not unlike the one which is on the K03S).

    Long and short of it being that I want rid of it!

    You may get a bit of a boost leak from chopping the DV bit off mate ;P

    I'm going to cut the whole thing off and weld a piece of pipe in it's place and paint.

    It seems to defy the object of removing it when you leave the chamber where it was. A step in and a step out, pressure variations, not to mention the disruption to the airflow.... Takes away the point really. Although I love the noise of a blower on spool

    I chopped mine off but then that was due to having a slightly different turbo

    Im thinking aboiut taking my charge pipe off to get it polished up, is this just a simple bolt on, bolt off, or does anything need to be reset once refitting it?
    thanks

    sand, how did you get your baffles out, im assuming they are spot welded in place?

    if i did this i would much rather modify the original pipe rather than hacking away at it

    If I ever need to take the charge pipe off I'll probably do this but I'm not going out of my way to try and get the pipe out. I like a hassel free lifestyle

    Guys i wouldnt bother, same the time and hassle.

    The problem with doing this mod is that it leaves a large area as soon as air leave's the turbo, ive done it and wouldnt do it again unless i was going to weld a pipe in ploace of the baffle, thats why im currently looking for a charge pipe todo exactly that, that or get one fabricated without the DV hole in.

    It's not very hard to do, i just took a little bit off the tip then bashed it till the baffle broke up inside, it's quite tough though so got to give it some force lol

    why would you not have the dv hole in, where would you run that extra pipe to instead?

    I could machine up a gradual slopped bit of steel in the CNC machine that you could insert into the tube and tack weld it in place

    Just done this modification and found it easier just to insert 2.5" exhaust pipe into the end that replaces the baffle thus giving it a smooth run with no steps

    Is this like an alternative to drilling holes in the airbox? Seems like a lot of work for not much benefit.
