PROFILE
A FMIC upgrade is one of the best modifications for the 335i/xi, because not only does it yield an average of 25whp and 27wtq but it does so consistently. How you may ask? When you increase power with an ecu tune for example, you are increasing boost pressure and ultimately heat in the engine. When the ecu (tcm) detects too much heat it will actually pull timing and limit the amount of power it the engine can produce in order to avoid damage to the engine. What an intercooler upgrade does for your car is keep the intake air temperature in the ecu's "safe zone" allowing it to maximize all the modifications you have on your car.


DYNO PROVEN
We tested our N54 powered 335i with all of our performance upgrades:

-3" Catless Downpipes
-N54 Charge Pipe w/TiAL bov

-And of course our 5" Stepped FMIC.

In addition, we were using the infamous Burger Motorsports JB4 to turn up the boost and manage the pertinents on our beloved N54. The results were impressive, a massive 408.8whp and 480.4wtq !

LOWER IAT's
How is that extra power made? The temperature of the charged air going into the engine, or IAT (Intake Air Temperature), is a key metric. This factor is so essential because the temperature of the air going to the engine can drastically alter the performance of the engine. The higher the IAT is the less power the car will make. In an independent test the oem intercooler reached a very high, power-robbing temperature of 151 degrees Fahrenheit. The same car equipped with the ARM 5" Stepped intercooler was able to keep its power up with a very cool 106 degrees Fahrenheit. That's an impressive 45 degrees cooler than the oem intercooler!



DOUBLE THE SIZE OF OEM
ARM Motorsports 335i/xi FMIC increases cooling efficiency and power on your N54 or N55 equipped 335i/xi by using a 5" stepped core which maximizes intercooler size 20.5" x 5" x 8.25" (almost 100% BIGGER than oem!) without the need for irreversible cutting or trimming to your bumper. It retains all the oem crash bars and bumper pads as well.

The 5" stepped core is constructed of a bar and plate design and will allow for consistent performance. It reduces heat-soak and minimizes the chance of your engine reducing boost and timing due to high IAT.

30 MINUTE INSTALL
Because the ARM Motorsports FMIC utilizes the OEM style connections installation is one of the easiest for a 335i/xi with an average install time of around 30min wheels up to wheels down.

Fitment / Performance November 21, 2017
Reviewer: Chris Jennings from Bradenton, FL United States  
Installed Intake, FMIC, and Downpipes this weekend. All fit rather well and are holding up to the Stage 2+ tune. Great parts for the price!

2012 N55 335i FMIC Review November 16, 2017
Reviewer: John Friskney from Arvada, CO United States  
First, I received my order 2 days after I ordered it with the free shipping. The black color looks amazing and all of the welds are precise and the mounting points are cut to precision. The ARM FMIC slides right into the place of the old IC without any cutting or modification of the bumper or liners. 35 minute install max and a breeze for anybody regardless of prior modification experience. Make sure to have a set of torx bits, there are 2 T25 bolts holding in the stock IC. Finally, this FMIC does provide amazing results, in my case, I am at altitude (5280 ft) and it was about 65℉. I did 5 3rd gear pulls from 2k rpm to 6500 and averaged the temperatures out. Stock IAT starts at 95 and ends at 136. ARM starts at 78 and ends at 90. ARM ends 5 degrees cooler than the stock starting temperature. I am not sure on specific horsepower gains, but this intercooler provides harder, more consistent pulls, with lower temperatures. Amazing product overall, and for the price nothing can beat it.

Intercooler/ charge pipe November 3, 2017
Reviewer: Mark Sanders from Lower Hutt , Wellington New Zealand  
ARM did a custom shipping order to New Zealand for me instead of the ridiculous freight cost many other companies use. Intercooler and charge pipe arrived quickly and both were easy to fit. Many thanks for such a professional service.
