Replaces the Stock Rubber Charge Tubes
1.0 inch port for Blow Off Valve
High Pressure Grey Silicon Hose
Easy 20 minute install
Molded to Fit Like Stock
These great looking grey silicon charge tubes will help dress up your X3 with added performance features. Unlike the stock rubber hoses these silicon hoses are less likely to slip loose once installed correctly. The 1.0 inch port can be purchased with the optional plug, if you do not want to use a Blow Off Valve. You can also choose either our Black Aluminum or Turbosmart Blow off Valves (note when purchasing with a Blow Off Valve all hardware will be included to make a complete Blow Off Valve kit). We also have an optional T-Bolt clamp kit for added protection.
This kit takes maybe 20 minutes to install. All you have to do is swap your charge tubes for the new silicon units, if you add a BOV plug in the new boost/vacuum nipple, and attach your new blow off valve. The kit locates your optional new valve behind the drivers compartment access panel so it's shielded from flying rocks and right behind you for the best sound. We configure and test these valves at our shop so they are ready to run. No adjustment is necessary for the best performance.
When properly installed the charge tubes are rated to hold 30+ psi boost pressure.

Increased throttle response
Easy 20 minute install
Our PwrTune complete blow off valve kit with Turbosmart brand valve has that great off throttle "pshhhtt" sound and the benefit of improved throttle response. This complete kit takes maybe 20 minutes to install. All you have to do is swap your primary charge tube for the new silicon unit, plug in the new boost/vacuum nipple, and attach your new blow off valve. Yours will come pre-adjusted but may need some simple fine tuning with the easy to adjust knob at the top of the blow off valve.
This kit locates your new valve behind the drivers compartment access panel so it's easy to adjust and right behind you for the best sound. As you can see from the pictures the valve is also shielded from mud and debris. Although this kit is pictured in 'horn' outlet configuration the Turbosmart valve includes a hose nipple which can replace the horn and be used to attach a hose so the boost pressure can be vented anywhere you'd like.
