AMS BMW 135i/335i Front Mount Intercooler
AMS' new intercooler gives your 135i/335i the edge over the competition. Your car's stock intercooler is a fraction of this size. Even with a stock vehicle, any time you step on the gas you are robbing yourself of horsepower, because your stock intercooler does not have the ability to cool enough air. It is running hot air into the engine bay, giving your twin turbo engine sluggish throttle response, acceleration and an increase in turbo lag.
Hot Air vs. Cold Air
Warm or hot air has fewer molecules of oxygen per cubic centimeter then cool or cold air. Hot air leaves your engine out of breath and gasping for more oxygen. However in cold air the oxygen molecules are tightly packed together, giving an optimal mixture to create a powerful and complete combustion. This allows the engine to perform to its highest performance without ever losing power. It is proven on 1/4 mile times that an engine will perform and will make a better time when the weather is cold and dry compared to times when the weather is hot and humid.
