Solstice GXP / Sky Redline Upgraded Charge Pipes
The factory charge pipes begin to restrict airflow around 5,500 rpms and the factory tune, as well as the GM Turbocharger Upgrade Kit (also known as GM Stage 1 Tune) take the flawed factory charge pipes into account. Both of those tunes are designed to taper off the desired amount of airflow above 5,500 rpms in order to work around the flawed design. Over the years many people have attributed the boost tapering at higher rpms to be a characteristic of the K04 turbocharger, but truth be told that the factory turbocharger is capable of much more power than many owners would believe.
If you would like the most benefit from installing these charge pipes you can pair these up with either our Stage 1 or Stage 2 performance tunes for significantly more power.
These Upgraded Charge Pipes will also work with the factory tune and the GM Stage 1 tune without throwing codes or hindering performance if you are looking to upgrade the pipes just for the sake of appearances too.
