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 items as the downpipe is different.
The downpipes and flanges are machined from T-304 high-grade stainless steel and are tig welded in house to deliver the best quality.
It will provide a sharper throttle response due to faster spool of the turbo alongside noticeable power gains and a much more aggressive exhaust note which sounds truly amazing.
It produces lower temperatures and less exhaust backpressure due to the relief of the turbocharger. The cylinder charge is increased which contributes to maximum performance.
There is also a substantial weight saving in comparison to the factory catalytic converter.
We have tested this product and found increases of around 10-15bhp.
Professional installation is recommended as some exhausts sit slightly different from others and can be tight although the feedback we have received from this product is that it is very easy to fit.
The pipe will come in brushed stainless.
We have tested our intercoolers on a few vehicles and found they have absolutely fantastic results. The IAT compared to the standard intercooler are reduced massively which means you get consistent increased performance.
The standard intercooler and the MTC intercooler both had intercooler intake temperatures of between 135-140 degrees through 5 runs on the road.
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 5 runs.
The MTC intercooler features a massive 5" competition core with flowed cast end tanks and 4 rows extra at the front to increase the surface area providing the best cooling properties.
We have 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.
This intercooler weighs 11.5kg and provides near 100% more volume and 90% more surface area than the standard intercooler.
Dimensions are 520mm X 215mm X 145mm which is a huge increase on the standard intercooler. These dimensions are the exact same as the Wagner dimensions.
This intercooler is powder coated in satin black with the machined alloy ends left bare.
The intercooler is a direct fit and there are some great videos on YouTube to follow. However, professional installation is recommended and should take approximately 1-2 hours.
We would go as far as to say this is the best intercooler on the market for these models.
We supply lots of other performance upgrades for these models so check out my other items.
