Ask Derek (ForcefedM3). He might have some parts leftover.

If anyone is local we could always duplicate or modify any parts needed for your HPF kit. We could make the lower charge pipe in 2.5" and have it fit tighter to the body like the piping in our kit.

Can you make one that's the same 3 inch. But the lowest part is oval to circle when it starts going back up?

We've been making a 3" pipe for our customers. It's still very close to the body but keeps the mandrel bends and it's 6061 aluminum so it's super light. Check me out!

I need a new charge pipe. It's beat up from being low and scraping the roads.

Which size intercooler piping I would need for HPF intercooler?

I still prefer a 2.5" pipe for an under the subframe install to sit as high as possible on the E36 and E46 BMW's. We have a large number of cars out there with no issues. We also use stainless steel so if it does scrape(on a really low car) it doesn't blow a hole in it or split open.

If you are talking about just the silicone coupler for the compressor outlet to the intercooler pipe, you can get one here: siliconeintakes.com

There wouldn't be a change in tune if it was changed to a 2.5" pipe? Would it fit into a HPF intercooler outlet? And I assume we would need different couplers? How much, Mike?

You can do that yourself. Just drive it for a couple days.
