The aFe SCORCHER Module is a simple plug-and-play unit that safely increases boost levels across the RPM range of your N55 turbo motor. The altered signals to your pressure sensor can result in up to 40 Hp and 80 lb-ft of torque. All in an easy-to-install module that has no effect on any other electronic accessories.
With naturally-aspirated cars, software upgrades can make a noticeable difference, but with BMW’s new focus on turbocharged engines and aFe’s expertise in tuning, software and mild hardware changes combine to provide seriously improved performance. Installing a direct plug-in aFe SCORCHER Module takes 30 minutes or less, yet it results in power increases that would require thousands of dollars on previous generations of BMWs.
The plug-and-play SCORCHER Module is constructed with all-weather, OE-style connectors for easy installation, and the aluminum housing has a black anodized hard-coat finish. Cables are automotive-grade TXL wires and are resistant to high heat and chemicals, so the SCORCHER is designed to stand up under pressure while continuously putting a smile on your face. The module itself is equipped with a blue L.E.D. light to signify that it’s receiving power - and delivering it!
Designed to provide nice gains and improvements even on stock cars, the aFe SCORCHER Module is optimized to take full advantage of other performance modifications. In order to realize the full power potential, we recommend combining your SCORCHER unit with an aFe intake, filter, and one of our free-flowing exhaust systems.
