No. Stage 1 will not generate enough boost to require a charge pipe. Had one on my 335is, stock pipe would uncouple from the throttle body @ 18.5psi. Do not have one on the 135is.

They had an issue with California not the Feds. Was easier for a small company to put up the notice than go to the expense of qualifying the unit. FWIW I have had no problems with the NC state...
