BMW F30 F32 F22 F87 228i M235i M2 328i 428i 335i 435i N55 Intercooler

Brand: Active Autowerke


The testing in our graph above is raw data from our dyno that was logging intake temperatures on a bone stock car versus the same car minutes later with our intercooler installed. The temperature gain on the stock car is 55 degrees versus only 22 degrees with our intercooler installed! Notice that at higher RPM the oem intercooler lacks the capability to keep the charge cool as the temperature ramps up exponentially with RPM. So even with a starting IAT higher than that of the stock car, our intercooler managed to keep temperatures cooler and more consistent all the way to redline.

Part Details


Install the Active Autowerkeu00a0BMW F-Chassis N20/N26/N55 intercooler for nearly factory-like fitment and experience the meaning of sustainable BMW power in a compact package. The factory intercooler may be adequate for the stock power, but with raised boost comes more heat to dissipate. To overcome this...a larger intercooler is the answer.

 • Unlike multi-layer gauze filters which can fray and release fiber particles into your engine, The Active Autowerke BMW M3 Filter uses two layers of tightly-interwoven cotton fabric. The 3 main benefits to woven cotton are the fact its thinner, holds oil better, and is stronger. Since its thinner, it allows better air flow without sacrificing filtration. The cotton holds the oil more evenly, and the medium is much stronger. Unlike gauze, you cannot wear a hole in woven cotton by rubbing it, and there is no way small bits of cotton can rip off since its interlocked with another piece.

 • Direct OEM like fit with superior quality

 • These filters are coated in steel mesh for extra strength and durability, because of this, Green filters are much more dent resistant.

 • These USA filters offer fully seam welded, powder coated, laser cut steel housing with pre-assembled rubber seals on our intake housings.
