VRSF 6.5″ Competition HD Intercooler Upgrade Kit for 12-18 F20 & F30 228i/M235i/M2/328i/335i/428i/435i N20 N55
Replace your inefficient factory intercooler with an upgraded intercooler kit to get the most out of your N20, N26 & N55 BMW. VRSF intercoolers are designed to be the best performing, direct bolt on intercoolers available for your BMW with special attention to quality and performance while maintaining a reasonable price. Each VRSF (FMIC) intercooler includes their proprietary High Density fin pack which results in higher HP gains compared to the other guys, mainly due to our incredibly dense internal and external fin pack. The VRSF core was engineered to offer a greater overall surface area for increased heat absorption as well as dissipation.
VRSF High Density Core
The most important component of any intercooler is the core. The core cools the charged air from the turbo before it enters the engine and the OEM BMW tube and fin intercooler is designed to support low boost levels and air flow. When tuned, airflow and boost levels are increased significantly. This causes the OEM intercooler to heat soak and reduces HP and increases the chance of pre-detonation.
VRSF remedy this problem with their proprietary, high density bar and plate intercooler core which utilizes a staggered and offset internal and external fin pack. The VRSF HD core has been carefully balanced to provide the the best intake temperature reduction while maintaining minimal pressure drop. The VRSF HD core is also much more durable than the OEM tube and fin core, with a better ability to withstand rocks and other debris.
The VRSF Competition HD Intercooler is comprised of an incredibly dense fin pack both internally and externally. It’s not uncommon to see intake temperatures drop at the end of a 3rd gear pull due to the Street HD’s larger overall surface area. You can expect to see an intake temperature reduction on a stock turbo, full bolt on car during a 3rd gear pull which is why the VRSF HD is THE best option for your BMW. Please note that the HD fin pack is now standard at no extra charge! The 6.5″ Competition HD is capable of supporting up to 800whp
