VRSF Upgraded Stepped Intercooler Kit - 2012-2015 BMW 228i/M235i/328i/335i/428i/435i N20 & N55

Replace your inefficient factory intercooler with a VRSF upgraded intercooler kit to get the most out of your N20/N55. Our 3 intercooler options were 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. 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 custom bar and plate core designs which utilizes a staggered and offset high density internal and external fin pack. Our cores have 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.

The VRSF Street Intercooler is a good, affordable option that will lower intake temps on a full bolt on car without compromise. With the Street intercooler you can expect to see an 11 degree rise during a 3rd gear pull on a stock turbo, full bolt on vehicle. In comparison, the OEM intercooler rises about 32 degrees during the same 3rd gear pull.

The VRSF Street HD Intercooler is comprised of a much denser 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 we recommend the Street HD over the regular Street intercooler if your budget allows. 

Installation

These are complete plug and play bolt on solutions and we include everything required to replace the OEM intercooler. All VRSF intercoolers feature tabs that allow the retention of the factory fan shroud. Our bolt on end tanks utilize the OEM intercooler piping as well as aftermarket chargepipes. 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.

Perfect fitment and easy installationReview by Dwayne

Bought this on sale which was already a win. Installation was pretty straight forward. Bought both the charge pipe and intercooler to avoid taking the bumper and belly pan off again anytime soon. I'm very happy with the fitment and craftsmanship of both products. (Posted on 12/1/17)

Since I've installed the new FMIC temps are down like I wanted. I couldn't be more happier with the results and I'd like to thank VRSF for providing quality products and great service!! (Posted on 6/9/17)
Great productReview by Anthony

After some stop and go traffic I'm usually about 15*-20* above ambient. This is just normal driving (no WOT pulls or anything).

If I quickly jump on the freeway after starting the car it's not unusual to see only a 5*-10* difference above ambient.

With my stock IC it would basically double those #'s.

For a WOT pull with my current IC I usually only see an increase of about 20* over starting IAT. Multiple back to back pulls (4+ pulls) get me about 30* above the IAT starting point. FYI these are logging pulls (2.5k to redline). What's cool (pun) is that with my IC you will actually see the IATs drop about 5* for the first 2000 rpm of a full pull

You can easily double those #'s on stock IC after a sigle WOT pull. As my buddy in his M2 did. It was bad to the point he had to stop doing the runs.

For a FBO car with a tune an IC makes a huge difference in keeping IAT down and from bad timing issues after a few runs.

I recommend doing the CP at the sometime. (Posted on 9/1/16)

Now that I have had the intercooler for over two months now I have had a chance to push it and drive it through various environments. I'm enjoying the benefits of the upgraded intercooler. (Posted on 8/8/16)
