This is the charged piping. Hot, compressed air from the turbo’s compressor housing whips through here and into the intercooler to be chilled.
Looks like the charge piping is going from a 2.5-in diameter to a 3-in piping diameter at the intercooler’s inlet.
More Vibrant parts include a 3-in resonator. It was worth noting that the turbo is good for up to 900whp, although we doubt that’s the goal to be reached, given the size of the exhaust.
…along with an oil catch can, which was installed on the passenger side shock tower.
Stay tuned as we square off Project E46 M3 against a local E90 M3 six-speed!
