    Why You Need An Active Autowerke ChargePipe. (Pictures Inside)

    Hi guys,


    I have seen plenty of blown charge pipes in my time at Active including two of my own but this case was a little special so I decided to reiterate how dangerous these OEM Pipes can be.


    My customer called me a few days ago complaining about the car not making any boost and a check engine light on the dash. Unfortunately he was not able to make it into the shop for 3 days due to work and continued to drive the vehicle.


    Upon Arrival I immediately opened the hood and found the charge pipe broken and hanging off the throttle body which was no surprise. However while I was showing the customer what potentially could of happened if the plastic went into the throttle body I found the rubber o-ring stuck on the throttle valve which I easily pulled out with my fingers. This was a real shock to the customer to find out his stock engine could of been destroyed if this o-ring became unstuck and how important it is to switch over to our metal one.






    The car in these pictures is 100% stock besides a coilover suspension.


    You can see the charge Pipe broken in 3 main spots.

    How much is it? Seems like a no-brainer.

    Significantly less than a new engine.... And it's a "common sense" mod if you start really boosting up and/or plan on running meth
