This uprated intercooler has been designed as an upgrade on the 135 and 335 BMW models witht he N54 engine up to 2009. After considerable trials with different intercoolers cores, we found that the most efficient for these models, was a core of bar and plate design, and along with an overall increase in dimensions we have been able to improve the cooling ability and reduce the pressure loss across when compared to stock.
Our own testing was conducted on software tuned vehicles, to ensure that they would be working their hardest and the results showed inlet temperature reductions of up to 15 degrees centigrade. Owners and tuning shops have reported back with complete satisfaction, not only with the increased performance but also with the faultless install.
The uprated intercooler is supplied with all parts required for the installation and comprehensive instructions. as can be seen, in comparison to the stock intercooler, the Forge unit is significantly larger.
