It is time that you finally have the ability to upgrade your stock upper pressure intercooler hose to a piece that: 1. Fits and 2. Does not blow that damn temperature sensor out and leaves you with a huge boost leak.
Introducing the AGP Upper Hard Pipe (UHP). This kit completely replaces the stock restrictive rubber hose with a new 2.5" custom mandrel bent high polished aluminum tube, 4 ply silicone hose connectors, all necessary hose clamps, and one final key ingredient: a new temperature sensor that threads into the UHP. Using this threaded sensor, you will no longer have the problem of pressure leaks around the stock grommet, and it won't blow out under high boost applications. To this date, this remains the only hard pipe setup that fits perfectly and does not leak boost.
You have the ability to purchase this kit with any of the popular BOV flanges on the market. You can also choose no BOV flange for those wanting to keep the stock integrated surge valve.
If you're still running the factory turbo, and you need a block off plate, you can add it for only $8.
The UHP comes with the threaded temp sensor. There is no need to purchase an additional sensor. This verson 2 sensor kit uses an OEM sensor so you will no longer need to hardwire in the temp sensor.
The UHP with a BOV mount will not fit the stock airbox or the AEM SRI.
TIP Sensor information. The TIP Sensor uses that red vacuum line that you pulled out of the stock plastic pipe. We designed this pipe with an 1/8" NPT threaded bung for use of the factory red line. The pipe will have an 1/8” NPT plug installed so if you want to utilize the “red line”, you will need to pull out the plug and install an 1/8”NPT pipe fitting. Most people will not use this "red line" anymore, so you will just leave the plug installed or it can be used for water injection or an extra boost source.
This package also includes the AGP Lower Hard Pipe (LHP). Replace your factory rubber hose on the hot side of the intercooler with our mandrel bent high polished aluminum 2.5" Lower Hard Pipe. All multi-ply silicone and heavy duty hose clamps are included in this package.
Our pipes are made of .0625 16ga. 6061 aluminum tubing for the best balance of lightweight and strength. We do not include or recommend t bolt clamps in this application for two reasons: 1. T Bolt clamps are too wide to fit over the tight areas of the throttle body and won't properly sit behind the bead on the tube. 2. T Bolt clamps are not recommended for aluminum tubing as users tend to over-tighten and crush the tubing.
Our kits include high quality worm gear clamps that we use on every application including high boost diesel. They will not fail if used properly and our pipes and silicone will never leak. You do not need to order any additional items with this product.

Worked perfectly. Welds are good. Thank you AGP.
This kit was a perfect replacement for the factory hoses and I love that I don't have to silicone glue in my factory sensor anymore. Great job AGP and I will definitely be buying more stuff in the future
