It's a direct bolt-on replacement for your stock intercooler - no removing the bumper or modifying brackets or wrestling with plumbing. This competition intercooler kit utilizes a tube fin center core unit, for cooler temperatures and less pressure drop. The warranty will cover the part to be replaced or to be refunded within 30 days from purchase date. Not to mention it handles 21psi of boost all day long. Turbos appear to spool more freely creating better throttle response and boost delivery to intake manifold.
The hardcoat actually makes the aluminum stronger, further reducing the chance of failure. They were very easy to understand and included photos with each step, however step 6 in the removal process has a different intake air scoop setup than mine and my stock charge pipe had a sound generator attached to it that made remove a bit more challenging, which was not mentioned in the directions. This warranty only applies to the original purchaser and is non-transferrable. Ideal connection compared to the silicone hose and hose clamp connection found in all other aftermarket diverter valve upgrade pipes available in the marketplace. The top-quality driving experience and confidence are restored! This stage 2 features a 20% larger core than the stage one for further enhanced cooling! It then made its way to the 135i in 2008 and a slew of other models all the way through 2010. I am much more confident in using all the new power in my 135i.
Did you know that Frank used to live in Miami, Florida and he had a shop not too far from Active Autowerke. So nothing less than excellent there as usual. I didn't notice it before but with the much heavier duty Cobb charge pipe the stock diverter valves seem like they need to go as well. The Evolution Racewerks Competition intercooler is much larger than stock, providing more surface area for cooling air to pass through. The welds look to be good quality, and the oe-style connection to the throttle body was superb. If you want the absolute maximum power available, go with catless.
Easy to use and install in just a few minutes with an obscure engine bay presence. I used the meth bung for my pressure switch. Other intake styles occupy different parts of the engine bay and can interfere with other upgrades by different companies. So if you need an Active Autowerke software tune, Broad Stroke Associates can do this for you usually within the same day at their facility. Oh, another thing, received it overnight delivery at a minimal cost! During our research and development, the connection at the throttle body was looked over very carefully.
Our particular interaction has extended over many months and never have I felt that I wasn't getting first-class service. Having a hole in a silicone hose will definitely cause a boost leak as it will not properly seal. This Evo I intercooler features a bar and plate type that is great for owners with light modifications and is great for use on the street or track. This is just the best all-around intercooler upgrade we have seen for the E90 E92 335! Silicone and clamps are really high quality. Fitting is great, finish looks awesome and I was pleasently surprised with the shipment speed. They found one of my diverter valves to be leaking, so this ended up being a minor performance improvement for me.
That's some serious horsepower either way you look at it. Engines make more power when you're able to move as much air and fuel as possible through them. Multiple features with a lower cost helps to make the Simon3 attractive. Resists bent or dented piping. This is available as a download on Google Play.
The added turbo noises made me find a new love for this car and I look forward to any other products vrsf puts out! We have selected the size of our intercooler cores to match the needs of the N54 depending on what your needs are. This revised intercooler piping essentially was exactly the same as the previous years except for one change. This kit comes complete with silicone hoses, coolant lines, and installation hardware. This sound baffle is connected on the side of the factory diverter valve charge pipe which splits airflow. Airflow in a pipe tends to travel in the outer edges of the pipe. Before it came about, only expensive flash tunes were available. Just speak to an Active Autowerke Sales Associate and he can get you going.
Fully compatible with factory piping or aftermarket piping utilizing factory style connectors. I know that is pretty small but since it is a review I thought I would include it. The Charge Pipes are direct factory replacements that require no tuning changes. Results are better warm starts, with a crisper and a more responsive throttle. Complete kit includes new silicone hoses and clamps with instructions. Unfortunately, this is a common issue with this engine.
