MTC Motorsport BMW M135i front mount intercooler and Decat pipe for Early N55 engines.
The intercooler and Decat will fit plug and play with the following vehicles with N55 engine:
BMW M135i 2012-June 2013 only
For July 2013 and onwards cars please see my other listing as the downpipe changed.
The decat downpipe is a great modification for any car here are some of the reasons why:
Better throttle response.
Relief of the turbocharger due to lower temperature and less exhaust back pressure.
The cylinder charge is increased, which improves performance.
Car feels a lot more free and responsive with this installed and has increased power by 10-15BHP on test vehicles.
Not to forget the sound is incredible.
The bends are mandrel bent so keep the maximum shape and internal size when being done.
The intercoolers have been tried and tested and are on a few vehicles already with absolutely fantastic results. The temps compared to the standard intercooler are so much lower.
The standard intercooler and the MTC intercooler both had intercooler intake temperatures of between 135-140 degrees through 3 runs.
At the other side of the intercooler into the engine the standard intercooler temps were between 75-80 degrees whereas the MTC intercooler temperatures were in the high 20's over all 3 runs which is absolutely fantastic!
The MTC intercooler features:
Massive 5" core Intercooler with flowed cast end tanks and 4 rows extra at the front to increase the surface area and keep those temps down!
I added a fin to the inside of the casting on the intake side to direct some of the airflow up through the top 4 extra cores.
Weighs in at 11.5kg and provides near 100% more volume and 90% more surface area than the standard intercooler.
Dimensions are 520mm X 215mm X 145mm, a massive increase on the standard intercooler.
Exactly the same dimensions as the Wagner intercooler.
Competition core provides the best cooling properties.
Intercooler is powder coated in satin black with machined alloy ends left bare.
Proven to handle over 550bhp as I have a car running this power with my intercooler.
The intercoolers are a direct fit and wouldn't say it was a hard job. The downpipe is also an easy fit and probably the easiest Downpipe we sell to fit.
As good as if not the best intercooler and downpipe kit on the market for the BMW M135i at the moment.
Any questions please send me a message or give me a call before you spend more money on the same product just because of the name.
We now also sell the 304 stainless steel Lambda sensor spacers to prevent the engine light coming on in most cases. The eBay item number is 254129889439 if you want to buy one or 2 of these along with your decat pipe/pipes.
