Engine failure ? (picture attached)

So last night i was driving in the high way (sport mode)..i was in 3rd gear going around 60kmh, decided to gas it harder from 2000rpm to maybe 4000rpm and suddenly POP.

After that noise the gas throttle is not responding as usual. The turbo sound quite weird it feels like it was leaking or something like that. Whenever i tried to accelerate its like the power is leaking, so i decided to go slowly until i arrived at my home luckily it was only 10 minutes away.

Once i parked the car i smelled this burnt smell. So decided to open the hood and check what is going on..this is what i found (pict attached)
Im going to tow it to a dealership tomorrow.

Anyone have any idea what is going on?

no need to worry... your charge pipe broke lol.

It's a common issue with our cars... especially when running more boost. They should be able to warranty the part and the car will run fine once the new piece is in. If you have a JB4 or something I would probably take it out for now.

I recommend you upgrade to an aftermarket one for a couple hundred bucks. They are not plastic like the stock ones and will not brake under heavy load. I run an ER charge pipe and love it... Well built piece.

Good luck.

Oh what a relief. Thank you for the information! I would definetely look for an aftermarket. Any brand suggestions?

Also how long does it take to change the charge pipe?

No problem! Good luck.

I run the ER charge pipe in anodized black. I love it... well built piece!

VRSF just came out with a CP recently... they are a reputable brand as well.

I'd say 1-2 hour swap. The actually piece isn't bad to swap out, but it's hard to take off the bottom clamp by the intercooler... so car needs to go on a lift. I had a local shop do it because I was in the process of moving and didn't want to deal with the install.

It nearly always cracks in the same place.. wonder if some silicone reinforcement tape/wrap around the lip would give it more life as a pre-emptive?

It shouldn't cause any issues.

Honestly even if you look right at it, the piece looks almost OEM if you get anodized black or wrinkle black color. I would be more worried about an intake or exhaust work then a CP.

Don't even try to reinforce the OEM chargepipe....lol

Someone tried and it still exploded from the inside, plastic just does not like boost. Which is why the aftermarket ones are better. You can try all you want to reinforce it, but it'll still figure out where to blow up in another spot. The OEM chargepipe is a design flaw where someone decide to cheap out.

Don't worry about warranty work, on my 11 e92 CPO had a charge pipe on for the life of ownership and had plenty of service with it on. They actually recommended it.

^^ Talk to Mike ^^ They usually have them and can get them to you in a hurry if needed. I got my ER chargepipe from them, and even had the dealership install it. Although I swapped mine before there was a failure.
