Another Charge Pipe gone bad

Hi all! This is my first post here, just bought a 2014 435xdrive a few months ago. I was driving yesterday on the highway ( first time out since I put the m performance brake kit on ) and went to pass a car, hit the throttle, and then pop! Im not super familiar with these cars yet, but kinda figured what had happened. The drivetrain malfunction came up so I got off the next exit popped the hood and saw the charge pipe cracked and off. Then restarted the car to move it to an open area to be towed and a transmission failure came up. ( I would assume the trans failure is just the computer reading something wrong and putting it a limp/safe mode?

Any recommendations on a charge pipe?

Thanks for any input, I've really been enjoying all the info shared here

any of the aftermarket ones are fine really.

find a vendor that has one on sale or that will give you a discount. do not pay full price.

I recommend purchasing a charge pipe from Mike at Extreme Powerhouse. It's my one stop shop for all of my performance parts and I never pay full retail price. Great prices and service! I bought the FTP charge pipe for my 435 and have been very happy with it. I am running a Stage 2 tune with no issues.
