The OEM diverter valve equipped on the N55 was never designed to hold high boost. Once the car is tuned the stock diverter pipe will begin to leak, losing your boost and your horsepower. Evolution Racewerks has addressed this problem with their new N55 diverter pipe.
Evolution Racewerks has finally released their N55 diverter pipe! ModBargains is proud to be one of the first to offer it to our customers. The Diverter Valve Upgrade Pipe is available in the same 2 finish. It is available in a mirror polish finish. It is also available in our Type III Hard Black Anodizing for the guys that want the stealthy, factory look. An added benefit of the Type III Hard Black Anodizing is that it hardens the aluminum piping and makes it more durable against accidental damage (like dropping the pipe).
On the factory diverter valve pipe features a sound baffle for the diverter valves. This sound baffle is connected on the side of the factory diverter valve pipe which splits airflow. This causes turbulence inside the pipe which slows the charge intake air velocity (speed of the air traveling inside the pipe). By removing this turbulence (by eliminating the factory diverter valve sound baffle), increased throttle response, decrease turbo lag and ultimately higher maximum power potential can be realized. Our Diverter Valve Pipe Upgrade eliminates this sound baffle and thus eliminating the unnecessary turbulence in the diverter valve pipe, keeping charge intake air velocity at it's maximum. 3"" 6061 Aluminum piping was used to properly match the size of the throttle body as well.
What are Meth Bungs?
Evolution Racewerks has added 1/8"" NPT threaded bung (for methanol or nos injectors) to their charge pipes.This allows for quick and easy installation of methanol/nitrous injectors that are used in methanol injection systems and nitrous systems. Each charge pipe comes with 2 meth bungs. Each 1/8"" NPT bung will come with a plug so that you can run with or without the methanol injector. Also, the 1/8"" NPT bung can be used as a boost source to connect your boost gauge or other devices to.
Complete Your Charge Pipe Upgrade with an ER Turbo to Intercooler Charge Pipe (TIC)
Take a look at your factory rubber charge pipe that runs from the turbocharger to your intercooler. Grab it and squeeze the rubber hose and you will be surprised how easily it collapses. Now, imagine how that charge pipe is under boost! Our new turbocharger to intercooler (TIC) charge pipe replaces that rubber hose with a new 6061 aluminum (lightweight) mandrel bent piping.

Now, imagine how that charge pipe is under boost! Our new turbocharger to intercooler (TIC) charge pipe replaces that rubber hose with a new 6061 aluminum (lightweight) mandrel bent piping. Often ignored, charged intake airflow characteristics greatly affect throttle response, turbo lag and ultimately maximum power potential. Smooth bends and minimal obstructions are ideal.
Airflow in a pipe tends to travel in the outer edges of the pipe. Hard piping like Evolution Racewerks' TIC charge pipe keeps the inner diameter of the constant and prevents it from ballooning or collapsing. The results? Better throttle response and decreased turbo lag! Pair it with ER's N55 Charge Pipes and have full metal hard piping in your entire intercooler system!
