2007-2012 BMW 135i/335i N54 & N55 Stepped 7.5" Race Intercooler Upgrade Kit

Replace your overheated factory intercooler with the VRSF 7.5" race intercooler kit to get the most out of your N54/N55. We designed this kit to be one of the best performing, direct bolt on intercoolers available for your BMW with special attention to quality and performance while maintaining a reasonable price point. Our intercoolers allow for higher HP gains, mainly due to their ability to keep intake temps down while preventing heat soak which is a common problem with the factory intercooler. This results in a more power and increased reliability with reduced chances of pre-detonation & knock.

Intercooler 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. Once boost levels and air flow are increased, the OEM unit is easily overwhelmed and can not keep up with the cooling demands of a tune running more than OEM boost levels. This results in heatsoak which will result in a power loss and a higher potential for pre-detonation in the upper RPM range. 

We remedy this problem with our ultra high density 1000hp custom bar and plate core design which utilizes a staggered and offset internal and external fin pack. Our core has been carefully tuned to provide the the best intake temperature reduction while maintaining minimal pressure drop. Our bar & plate core is also much more durable than the OEM tube and fin core, with a better ability to withstand rocks and other debris. This intercooler was specifically designed for upgraded turbo cars running larger twin turbos or single turbos. This custom core is 1080 cubic inches in total and is 134% larger than the stock intercooler.

Our 7.5" FMIC has been involved in many record breaking builds and is currently featured on the current world's highest horsepower N54 @ 861WHP

Finish & Construction

Our VRSF intercooler features 3D CAD designed cast aluminum end tanks for improved flow in comparison to sheet metal end tanks. Our one peice seamless cast end tanks are also more durable than comparable sheet metal or multiple peice end tanks. Every VRSF intercooler is finished in a beautiful, uniform, bright silver coating which helps protect the intercooler from corrosion and ensures your VRSF intercooler holds up to the elements, no matter where you live.

Every VRSF product includes our lifetime warranty & our "No Hassle" satisfaction guarantee which includes fitment & defects. 

Installation

All VRSF intercoolers feature tabs that allow the retention of the factory fan shroud. We include everything required to repalce the OEM intercooler, including custom molded couplers and stainless steel t-bolt clamps necessary for installation.

The race intercooler requires trimming of the black plastic shroud behind the bumper. The bumper does not require trimming. Each VRSF intercooler is hand finished and pressure tested to ensure a high quality, leak free experience. Our intercoolers fit both Left Hand Drive (LHD) & Right Hand Drive (RHD) Models as well as all XI models.

Features

  • Ultra High Desnity Bar & Plate Core
  • 134% Larger Than OEM FMIC
  • Cast Aluminum End Tanks
  • Easy install, less than 2.5 hours

Below is a 4th gear pull @ 35 PSI. This car made 790whp and the ambient temperature was 94 degrees fahrenheit. As you can see there is a minimal 11 degree rise in intake temperatures and the boost maintains steadily throughout the RPM range providing adequate flow for the PTE 6466 turbo.

Excellent quality, very high fin desityReview by James
Overall Rating
After doing a great deal of research I chose this intercooler because it features high density cores and has cast end tanks, which provide better flow characteristics than sheetmetal end tanks that feature sharp angles. Other than the quality of the intercooler, I was most impressed with how quickly it arrived on my doorstep - only seven days from order placement to arrival! Buy this intercooler and you will not need to upgrade again. (Posted on 9/21/17)
Nobody will argue that Buschur and ETS are top of the line products. VRSF's 7.5" HD Race is just as good as those.Review by dyezak
Overall Rating
I've driven modified turbo cars since 1995. Starting with DSM's and using Buschur FMIC setups (4 of them), moving to EVO's and ETS FMIC's (2 of them), then on to 335i's (3 of these) and ETS and VRSF FMIC's. Nobody will argue that Buschur and ETS are top of the line products. VRSF's 7.5" HD Race is just as good as those. I never looked at their lower end products, but the HD line is definitely G2G.

Keeps my single turbo IAT in checkReview by Shane303
Overall Rating
I run the VRSF 7.5" race intercooler in Arizona. This intercooler keeps my single turbo IAT in check so well, that I forget to look at it on logs... This is the THIRD intercooler I put on my car so do yourself a favor and buy the 7" HD or 7.5" race from the start. You will not need to upgrade any further.

Simply the greatest! Review by Alexander

We have tested the VRSF 7.5 in a TTE 550 upgraded n54 with WMI. The IAT is the best we have ever seen! It is so much better than the Wagner Evo 2 Comp. It works great! Thumbs up! Tank you and greetings from Germany. (Posted on 7/14/17)
7.5" Race intercooler installed on a BMW E60 535iReview by Mohamed
Overall Rating
So at last i can confirm that the VRSF 7.5" Race intercooler fits on the E60 !

All the steps are the same as the installation guide of the 7" FMIC , just a little more cutting on the fan shroud and drilling out the rivet for the ambient temp sensor bracket , which can be done easily.

Installation was straight forward and fitment is perfect.
