Performance and Size

Again, don’t be fooled by extremely large intercoolers. There are some options available that are 7inches or larger in core thickness. Bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to proper sizing and performance benefits of a high-performance intercooler. No one should consider hanging off the front of their “performance” car an intercooler that is more than ~30 pounds. When CSF decided on a proper sizing, the biggest intercooler possible was developed with a max weight of 30 pounds. Some larger options on the market are way over 40 pounds! Way too much to hang off the front of the car, the last place you want to add weight in a small performance sedan or coupe like the vehicles the N54 motor is found in. Also, intercoolers with thicker cores or options that say they have a “denser” core are not taking into account the negative effects on airflow into the rest of the cooling system. There is little to no true performance benefit if you have a cooling system with a massive intercooler resulting in very low IAT’s, but with very high water temperatures because of the lack of airflow, often resulting in the engine going into limp mode, especially when driving on the race track. 

Fitment

  • CSF’s new BMW N54 intercooler is the only TRUE plug and play solution compared to the rest
  • No cheaper silicon hose clamp system, only BMW style “Quick-Connect machined fittings
  • OEM mounting locations w/ fitment kit and instructions included 
  • Clears OEM crash bar / no modification to install with no cutting or trimming required.

Quality

When purchasing a CSF intercooler, you’re purchasing from a cooling system manufacturer that is an ISO-certified Tier-1 OEM supplier that has designed, built, and tested the entire intercooler in-house. Competitors source their cores from overseas factories, and either weld the coolers themselves (not factory level production), or simply purchase an intercooler from a supplier source. Also, CSF intercoolers are meticulously hand welded by expert TIG welders and finished in a semi-gloss black or silver finish that is much more durable to damage than uncoated intercoolers. Finally, each intercooler is individually packaged with hardware kit, instructions, and CSF logo stencil.

Fits E series N54,N55 . Does not fit Z4,535i.
