My iats are under control now and I feel much more comfortable pushing 21lbs of boost. This is perfect for someone looking to upgrade a tuned or heavily modified N54! Well, their calls for an upgrade have been answering by Wagner Tuning. With a larger core and more surface area than stock your intercooler pressure drop is reduced and cooling dramatically improved. The only question is fitment. All in all I am a happy camper and extremely happy with the switch. I asked if it was too late to upgrade to 2.
It required minor trimming for it to fit into the bracket where the oem intercooler was held and a few inches off the fan shroud. By design, it is a pull-type valve only. Staff arrived and made me feel welcome. The install is very straight forward. Durable Couplings: Allow for expansion, movement, and extreme vibration between two hard pipes while reducing the possibility of connections coming apart or having your hard pipe or other equipment break. That is the only thing I see could have been added to the installation manual. I opted for the free shipping and received it in 6 days West coast.
Developed on our in house dynamometer with the assistance of our ecu calibrator, our design is a result of many revisions to provide the perfect balance of supporting backpressure matched to a perfect calibration of the turbocharger dutycyle tables. The Cobb design incorporates a thicker cooler with a super-sized 5. One of the F30 335i's most significant weak-points is its stock intercooler. This means that boost pressure keeps it closed, meaning no boost leaks upwards of 100+ psi of boost. Arm Motorsports does a excellent job on making their products.
It was about a month wait for it to arrive since when I ordered it, but it was expected since they were on back order. Awesome welds—stack-of-dimes across the board! In this 3rd gear run with boost peaking at 18psi, which is 2psi higher than the stock intercooler run, it starting at 95 degrees and ended at only 97 degrees. Previously my intake temp rose from 120 — 152 degrees in one third gear pull. These often break, even on cars running factory boost - we often replace the plastic piece with hard aluminum Evolution Racewerks charge pipes when cars come through the shop. If you want everything light weight than get a bike!! The 3rd gear run started at 93 degrees and ended at 126 degrees, a huge increase of 33 degrees Fahrenheit on 16psi of boost, and certainly restricting the amount of power this N55 could have been making.
Shipments refused by you the customer and returned back to DieselOps will carry an automatic 10% restocking fee deducted from the total credit owed. The standard option included is our journal bearing turbo and dual ceramic ball bearing is offered for a small fee. Tiago went above and beyond to get me my parts in time and was willing to do so even though the original expected delay was due to inclement weather and no fault of their own. A Dinan intercooler is much larger than stock, providing more surface area for cooling air to pass through. It comes with all gaskets, hardware, has a polished finish, and fits perfectly which makes installation a breeze. The step is a thicker bar and plate core with an additional set of rows on top that takes advantage of un-used space in the nose. The hose clamps are designed specifically for silicone hoses, featuring beveled edges and a pressed drive mechanism.
So we also designed a custom throttle body charge pipe to include with each turbo system standard at no additional cost. And that helps maintain your boost levels and performance! The 330d and 325d is same nubers. If the diverter valves fail, you lose precious boost and horsepower, rendering your upgrade worthless. A must have for a tuned E60. Our price match guarantee is for that exact situation! We hope to work with a new tuning software company, upgrade the fueling and go back for more testing. Note: This coupling kit fits aFe intercooler with tube 46-20152-B Only.
Thanks again for a great product! Customer is responsible for shipping costs incurred to return products. It's a direct bolt-on replacement for your stock intercooler - no removing the bumper or modifying brackets or wrestling with plumbing. The kit also clears the factory intake airbox. I did a lot of research on diy installs before I attempted to do it myself. Please wait for shipment instructions before shipping any cores, many cores will be sent directly to the manufacturer. Pull after pull the car still feels strong compared to the stock intercooler where it would feel underpowered after pulls.
Forge Motorsport discovered the perfect combination for your N55 with this bar and plate design intercooler. In our eyes, the best intercooler upgrade is one that not only works but also installs with a minimum amount of fuss. Even in 100° weather, it still performs the way it should. If you are interested in a kit, please let us know. I recommend everyone to shop here for their N54 needs! The instructions provided where easy to follow.
Factor in greater boost levels and other modifications and the more heat soak will put you out of the running. For anyone looking to run larger upgraded turbos above 850whp, we recommend our 7. I ordered the wrong charge pipe with my intercooler, but at first thought they made the mistake. Hard anodizing helps improve durability of intercooler piping. This is just the best all-around intercooler upgrade we have seen for the E90 E92 335! With the design of our throttle bodies, the tolerances that this part is manufactured against is key. If it's too hot the engine computer will reduce power to safer levels. One of the first things to fail and cause a boost leak are the factory boost diverter valves.
Resists bent or dented piping. Its a bit tight to get to the clamp to cut but it can be done. Quick and easy connection and disconnection to throttle body. Thanks Tiago I can feel the difference in performance and would recommend this product to all of my family and friends. The old intercooler was reading around 64 degrees Celsius from the intercooler to the intake with an ambient outside air temp of 11 degrees Celsius. Additionally the M57N and N2 engines suffer from carbon buildup on the faces of inlet valves an in inlet ports, this has a direct impact on an engines ability to consume air and evacuate exhaust gasses efficiently and will have a direct bearing on the power producing capability of the engine. Customer support was excellent, Tiago was very prompt and thorough with answers to any of my questions.
