ESS Tuning's charge pipes are constructed from steel reinforced, five layer silicone. The silicone construction allows for ease of install, where the steel reinforcement provides rigidity that is at home with both stock, and higher boost levels. Included are billet CNC machined adapters that further improve upon the OEM ABS plastic design.
The ESS charge pipes are slightly larger than the OEM counterpart, creating a need for the engine cover extension socket that is included. The engine cover socket raises the back of the S55 engine cover enough to accommodate for the larger outer diameter of the pipes, but not too much as to interfere with the underside of the hood when closed.
