N63 Charge pipe size?

My Passenger side charge pipe seems to have an ever so small cut in it.
So I want to have the hose replaced/changed. Before removing the clamps from the intercooler. Does anyone know the inlet size for the charge pipe or the Turbo side? I I intend on replacing the charge pipe with couplers on each end and a hard pipe in between. Similar to the m5 setup.


I know the clamp for the intercooler is 72mm(2.83") So I'm assuming the inlet is 2.75". But guessing on the turbo outlet size, I Think it is 2.0"

I know they dont make any options like they do for the m5 (https://www.x-ph.com/burger-tuning-b...th-meth-bungs/)



Let me know if anyone has anymore info on this, or has it been done before. Or is it a waste of time and try to source a stock charge pipe.

Thanks in advance.

For those that are interested.
The intercooler side is just below a 2.5". Closer to a 2.25" but a 2.5" coupler with a clamp will seal.
On the turbo charger side its 1.75"
Im still going to play around with the idea of changing it out. We will see.

I don't think there is room in there for the new ICs. They appear to be closer to M5 sized. The Stock N63 is tight fit, the Alpina/Dinan ones are ~25% larger and take up all the extra room.

The N63Tu Alpina ICs are probably the most ideal setup due to the molded/cast ducting in stead of chargepipe.
