ETS Intercooler Piping for the EVO X (2008-2015)

Upper or Lower or Both

Price includes standard ground shipping within the lower 48 states.

We use and sell only ETS for intercoolers and piping. It comes down to value. There are some Chinese pipes out there that are cheaper. But the quality of the hoses is horrible and fitment is random. For the upper pipe often the support bracket to the radiator support will break off creating a boost leak. There are more expensive pipes out there too. Maybe they are cuter, maybe the company has a fast race car that they need to pay for. But the expensive pipes won’t make your car any faster. Here in “Kalifornia” we need to keep things on the stealthy side so we only offer the black piping with black couplers.

Mostly we recommend upgrading the intercooler pipes and the intercooler all at once. If on a budget, do just the upper pipe for now and the rest later. For the lower pipe and the intercooler install, the front bumper cover pretty much needs to come off. Might as well do them together.

ETS Upper Intercooler Pipe

The upper intercooler piping starts with a smooth mandrel bent 2.5″ stock turbo outlet pipe which connects to the remainder of the hot side piping.  The stock turbo outlet pipe is separate to allow it to be swapped out with the installation of the ETS EVO X turbo kit to come so that the remainder of the upper piping can be retained.  This ensures that you never have to “upgrade an upgrade” and spend more money on a new upper pipe when it comes time for a big turbo kit.  Making the connection from the turbo outlet pipe to the intercooler is a single-piece mandrel bent 2.5″ upper intercooler pipe.

The ETS Mitsubishi Evolution X Upper Pipe removes the restrictive factory hose which is 1.75″ after the turbo outlet and replaces it with a full 2.5″ upper intercooler pipe which helps with throttle response as well as reliability.  The factory hoses are prone to ballooning and blowing off under high boost over time.

ETS Lower Intercooler Pipe

The ETS Mitsubishi EVO X Lower Piping Kit removes the factory rubber hoses which are prone to ballooning and popping off under higher boost pressure over time.

From the intercooler outlet the 2.5″ mandrel bent piping continues around the core support, with only two smooth gradual radius bends in its entire length, to the lower intercooler pipe bracket before making a straight shot up to the throttle body. ETS 4-ply silicone and 100% SS T-bolt clamps are included for every connection to ensure that blown off intercooler piping stays a thing of the past.

Features:

  • 2.50″ Mandrel Bent Piping
  • Lower Intercooler Pipe Bracket
  • 4-ply Silicone
  • T-Bolt Clamps
  • Includes all mounting hardware
  • Does not block the oil cooler ducting like some of the competitor pipes
  • Works with GSR and MR transmission as well as the stock airbox and blow off valve.  (Direct replacement of factory unit)
