cp-e Delta Core Front Mount Intercooler Kit - Titan Finish - 135i/335i N54
Reducing intake air temperatures means more power for longer
The cp-e Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) for the 2007-2010 E82 135i and E90/E92 335i & 335xi (and all 335is) set the standard for all other FMIC kits. The cp-e FMIC is one of the best engineered and complete intercooler kits on the market. The benefits of a larger intercooler will be seen by everyone, not just highly-tuned cars. The stock intercooler does an OK job for trips to the mall or un-stressed freeway driving. But it's shortcomings become apparent once heatsoak sets in. A larger and more efficient cooler won't have any problems keeping up with tough environments, including the track and boost upgrades.
cp-e used all of the available space in the front bumper for this intercooler, without requiring modification during the install. Their bar-and-plate design is what performance intercoolers need to maximize surface area compared to a tube-and-fin construction. Cast aluminum ends are stronger and flow better than stock plastic. cp-e's testing shows where their engineering is a huge success: improved thermal efficiency by nearly 25% and improved the pressure drop along the core by 33%. Under 14psi of boost, the cp-e achieved 180° of temperature drop between the hot side and cold side while the stock intercooler barely achieved 120°. cp-e also freed-up nearly 20hp at the wheels on the dyno that would normally be lost to higher temperatures and less pressure.
The cp-e fits both N54 and N55 models and comes complete for a bolt-on install. All hoses and hardware are included to connect to the factory turbo piping. An oil cooler is also available to address N54 oil temperature problems.
