CTS Turbo Air to Water Intercooler Upgrade for S55 BMW
CTS Turbo is proud to offer our premium Air-to-Water intercooler for BMW F80/F82/F83/F87 comp with S55 engine.
The factory intercooler is made from plastic and is prone to cracking, and has an inefficient tube-and-fin core. Thus, it is not designed for boost levels higher than stock. This is a weakness we have experienced and decided to make our own.
This is a direct replacement upgrade for the plastic factory intercooler. Our engineers started with the factory part that was measured on our in-house CMM and scanned using our 3D scanner. After that a working model was created and optimized using CAD software.
Our proprietary cast intercooler end tanks have flow-directing fins on the inlet and outlet to make sure the airflow stays streamlined for maximum efficiency. High-density bar-and-plate core is at the center of it all; covered with CTS logo top plate. CNC machined fittings, stainless steel helicoils in the mounting location, high-quality hardware and silicon couplers come standard. The assembly is hand-welded in house and pressure tested before we finish it in a semi-gloss black powder coat.
This high-quality intercooler is available from CTS and our authorized distributors only! Beware of imitations that are purchased from overseas catalogues, they do not carry manufacturer’s logos cast into the core.
Benefits to upgrading the intercooler are lower AITs, decreasing the chance of detonation and timing pull and more airflow.
