NOT FOR SALE IN CA.
The wait is over. With over a year of development and testing on a stable of test cars in different racing conditions, we're proud to introduce our new Competition Series Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC), the ultimate intercooler solution for your 335i and 435i!
Independent testing (by customers and shops) throughout the years have shown that time and time again, our intercooler cores have outperformed our competitors. We've even had competing companies utilize our intercoolers for competition instead of their own! The independent test data below shows that our FMIC is so efficient in cooling that it has cooled intake air temperatures (IAT) to almost ambient (outside) temperatures. We also did extensive testing on the proper size to use to effectively cool the hot charged air as well as fight off heatsoak (when the intercooler cannot transfer heat away faster that the heating building up from the hot intake air). Heatsoaking is not an issue at all as shown by the consistency of the IAT staying in the same temperature range throughout the WHOLE RPM powerband. Also, our FMIC recovers so quickly after a full throttle pull that once you shift, it recovers completely. This is why pull after pull, our FMIC does not heatsoak. Beat on it all day long and the IATs will consistently stay the same. Our Competition FMIC is just what it is called, designed for competition. Other brand intercoolers may be adequate for short period pulls like the 1/4 mile (with hours between runs to cool down). Our intercoolers are designed to withstand the rigors of harsh racing conditions like road racing where you are at full throttle for long periods of time, sometimes behind other cars blocking direct airflow needed to cool down your intercooler. With countless test and competition laps around our local racetracks in 100+ degree weather, heatsoak is not a problem on our 135i Time Attack race car. With it's size and ability to support over 600hp, it is most likely the "last intercooler you will ever buy".

The heart of the ER Competition FMIC is the massive 20"x11"x3" (26"x11"x3" with end tanks) featuring our famous high density bar and plate intercooler core. It features 660 cubic inches of very efficient high density bar & plate core (35% larger) versus the factory 425 cubic inches of less efficient tube & fin core. Through extensive testing of different types of intercooler cores (tube & fin, bar & plate) we developed our own high density bar and plate core. What's different about our bar and plate core you ask? Fin density. Why is this important? The fins are the main heat transfer surface. More fin density = more actual surface area. What does this mean in the real world? Most quality intercooler cores utilize around 12-14 fins per square inch. Cheap quality oversea cores utilize around 8-10 fins per square inch (some even lower) which explains why they perform so poorly even though a large core is utilized. Our Evolution Racewerks cores are 18-20 fins per square inch. What this means is that compared to a cheap overseas core, we can get the same efficiency in roughly half the core size. Now imagine if they're the same size!
The Basic Kit consists of the intercooler assembly. This replaces the factory intercooler.
The Standard Kit consists of everything included in the Basic Kit but adds the Charge Pipe Kit. Increase throttle response as well as decrease turbo lag are the benefits of the new Charge Pipe Kit. Ease of installing methanol injection kits or a boost pressure source are an added benefit. Charge Pipe is discounted in the bundle. For more information about the Charge Pipe Kit, click here.
The Full Kit consists of everything included in the Standard Kit but adds the Turbo to Intercooler Pipe Kit (TIC Pipe). Increase throttle response as well as decrease turbo lag are the benefits of the new TIC Pipe Kit. With the Full Kit, ALL the factory rubber and plastic intercooler pipes will be replaced. You will have full hard piping throughout your system. TIC Pipe is discounted in the bundle. For more information about the TIC Pipe Kit, click here.
