What Is The Purpose Of Charge Pipes?

A charge pipe is one of the most critical components of a vehicle. It is a stainless steel tube that can help you replace the factory-installed intercooler piping of an internal combustion engine. These aftermarket charge pipes are better than the pre-installed ones as they are made of more substantial materials and are connected to the diverter valve (DV) or the blow-off valve (BOV). 

It is useful for the following reasons:

  • To eradicate the risk of breakage of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) charge pipe.
  • To minimize turbocharged air pressure loss.
  • To increase the airflow from the turbo to the intercooler.

Charge Pipes ultimately improve the overall engine performance of your vehicle. Thus, you must upgrade your car with a high-quality charge pipe to minimize the flow and boost the reliability of the twin tube. 

What does a charge pipe do?

When driving your car down the road, it is imperative to understand that it generates tremendous heat inside the engine.

Heat acts as the worst enemy of a turbocharged engine. Thus, your car’s engine uses an intercooler that cools down the hot turbo gasses before they recirculate in the engine intake.

Your mechanic will connect your aftermarket charge pipe to the intercooler. This setup allows the air to flow from the turbo to the intercooler, the charge pipe, and eventually to your car’s engine via its intake valve. Therefore, the charge pipe typically channels or carries the turbocharged air to the engine.

On the contrary, stock pipes are generally weak, restrictive to airflow, and do not offer as many benefits as an aftermarket charge pipe. The best quality charge pipe should be capable of resisting heat, cracking, bending, or wrapping. 

Why upgrade to an aftermarket charge pipe?

Aftermarket charge pipes minimize the pressure loss of turbocharged air. They maximize the airflow, thereby improving the turbocharged performance of your car’s engine.
The factory-installed charge pipe does not offer the benefits that an aftermarket charge pipe provides. 

Here are a few more reasons why you should upgrade to an aftermarket charge pipe:

  • It boosts the efficiency of your turbocharged engine.
  • It will offer you a more robust charge pipe and a reliable machine.
  • It will help you improve your vehicle's sound if you upgrade to a blow-off valve. 
  • It is easy to upgrade and serves better functionality. 

What are the features of an aftermarket charge pipe?

If you are thinking of replacing your factory-installed stock pipe with a high-quality aftermarket charge pipe, here’s why it will be beneficial:

  • It is a better replacement alternative to your OEM.
  • It offers increased airflow.
  • It has stainless steel-aluminum tubing.
