Talking VRSF F Chassis 6" Stepped Core Intercooler Now Available!! N20/N26/N55 Engines



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

Replace your inefficient factory intercooler with the VRSF upgraded intercooler kit to get the most out of your N20/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.*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 design which utilizes a staggered and offset high density 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.

Finish & Construction
Our VRSF intercooler features 3D CAD designed cast aluminum end tanks for improved flow in comparison to sheet metal end tanks. Our CNC'd, 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 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
This is a complete plug and play bolt in option and we include everything required to repalce 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.
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.

  • High Desnity Bar & Plate Core

Here's a 2-4 gear pull

Ambient is right around 75 degrees, the pull starts at 89 degrees, drops down to 82 and ends at 86 degrees. It's difficult to say without back to back testing but I'd be willing to bet this is hands down the best performing intercooler currently available for the F20 platform.

These intercoolers fits on regular F20 bumpers or just on M-Sport bumpers?
