How to remove stock charge pipe?

Anybody have any experience removing the stock chargepipe or know of a detailed "how-to" instructions?

I went to look at removing the stock charge pipe (from TB to Intercooler) and im stuck at the clips on how to remove? Also, if there is a certain sequence to attack this? I did remove the bottom tray and it seems I may need to remove the inner fender liner (which towards the wheels, it is riveted onto the body. So if I remove the rivets and I need rivet in new ones in ...

Im so used to modding my E90, but the F48 is another story...

This is part #1 of the modding session... Still need to mod the boost pipe itself...

Check these links. That's what I used to remove the charge pipe.

The air pipe is easy to remove. The charge pipe is more involved and requires replacing rivets to the wheel wells and subframe, IIRC

Yes! i figured out the rivets the hard way. Had to go to the BMW dealer and bought extras and went to Harbor Freight for the rivet gun. This is quite the project... Got me the FTP boost & charge pipe. Don't see too many X1 folks doing this... Only see this done on the mini forums (similar to our B48) motor...

Appreciate your input and help!

No problem. Glad to help out. You'll notice that the FTP charge pipe is actually smaller in diameter than the OEM. I suspect this will allow for faster spooling of the Turbo. Boh of these pipes, along with a DP, and an ECU tune really transform the X1 into something deserving of an M-Sport moniker, IMO.

This will be quite a project to install!
