Thermal Efficiency is the name of the game and we came to play. cp-e? has always strived to be innovators in the automotive industry and we have created a product that separates our FMIC from all other solutions.
At the heart of the FMIC, we feature a 3? thick bar and plate design that is capable of supporting up to 750hp. We also provide replacement piping for pre and post-intercooler piping. The n54 intercooler is measured at 5.5? x 6? x 21? which is a substantial upgrade from the stock unit. We opted for this size to maximize surface area while eliminating the cutting required for the end-user to install the intercooler. Our FMIC posted a staggering 83% efficiency @6800 RPM whereas the stock unit was 58%. We could say our intercooler is 95% efficient but that isn't a relative portion of the test and we believe it's misleading.
In addition to this FMIC, we have also engineered an optional oil-cooling unit that is mounted on the FMIC to alleviate all notions of the N54 stock oil cooling not being sufficient under heavy driving..
With the growing need to provide qualitative data, cp-e? has made it a priority to do vigorous testing on our FMIC and provide the public with a full synopsis of how our FMIC performs under various driving conditions. To capture this information, we used our BlackBox logging utility. It's a telemetry logging system that uses both a 3D accelerometer and a GPS to indicate vehicle speed and position over time.
Additionally, the system features 8 analog input channels which have been populated with a series of temperature and pressure sensors so we can see exactly how the intercooler performs under real conditions!
Need more analysis? We've published white papers for all the technically savvy gear heads located in the link below. We feel that all information we've used to analyze this product should also be available for public consumption to assert our claims of having one of the best intercooler solutions for the BMW market.
Heat soak and overheating oil from your OEM equipment is a thing of the past. With the cp-e? FMIC and oil-cooling kit you can step into a new level of power and performance with your N54.
The ?Core? Front Mount Intercooler comes complete with all necessary hardware required for a complete and professional installation.
