Hello all,
Earlier this week my lovely 30k mile OEM turbos blew their oil seals. I have since purchased VVT stage 2+ and await their arrival. I currently have a mishimoto intercooler, which connects just like stock with the oem c clip. VVT does not currently offer any hot side charge pipes/ outlets that fit with the OEM intercooler connection. I was informed one will be released soon but this is a timely matter as it is my daily driver and I need it back ASAP. A quick google search comes up with PSP aluminum outlets but they are not released yet either. Does anyone know of any hotside pipes that will work, does anyone offer an adapter?
Thank you all for your advise.

I can't imagine anyone will offer a solution to fit the stock style IC fittings. It is rare on upgraded N54 ICs.

My advice would be sell you IC and buy a non stock style connection IC. Plenty of them on the market. You might want a better IC anyways with upgraded twins.

You might be able to hack together an adapter but I can't imagine it would be worth it...or as reliable as you would like. Every added connection point is another point of failure/boost leak.

If you really want to keep the IC you have one idea would be to cut off the stock style connector and weld on a small piece of pipe to connect to the hotside outlet pipes on the market. If you can't do this yourself the price a shop will charge probably will not make this worth it, even though it is all of 20 minutes of work tops. This is still a bit mickey mousey but it would work.

Best of luck. Let us know what route you end up going.

Yes sir. We made pretty much every Intercooler adapter we could think of a couple years ago...

Left to Right:
1) OEM Circlip to 2.5"
2) 2.5" to 2.5"
3) 2.5" to 2.75"
4) 2.5" to 3.0"

All CNC'd in-house from T6061 and anodized black. As they are not on our website you'd need to email [email protected] if interested.

Thanks,
Rob
