ADD "ARM" Stencil?:


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 (DME) 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.

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 !


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!

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 to almost 50% 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.


The ARM 5” FMIC is the first ever intercooler upgrade for the E90/E92 335i that has been engineered with CAD designed CNC aluminum connectors for you to utilize either the OEM intercooler hoses or the ARM FMIC Hose Upgrade. Opting to utilize the OEM connectors will make for a faster and fully reversible install. While upgrading your 335i to the massive ARM 3in. intercooler hoses, you will be giving your 335i maximum airflow by removing any restriction the OEM connections may have on the charged air.

5 of 5 5” FMIC May 26, 2020
Reviewer: Kevin Valdez from El Paso, TX United States  
Great product noticed a difference right away. Had some install issues with the O rings provided, but after a quick email I was given multiple ways I could fix it. And one of them ended up working out, great product so far very happy with it and would happily tell all my fellow 335i friends that this is the way to go!

5 of 5 ARM 5’’ Stepped Intercooler May 13, 2020
Reviewer: Drake McMurtry  
This intercooler has been the absolute best upgrade for my BMW 335i. The car pulls harder and more consistently than ever thanks to this intercooler. All at a price that’s more than reasonable. The intercooler arrived quickly, in fantastic packaging, and even with free shipping. I highly recommend this intercooler to anyone with an N54 going FBO. The lower IATs will transform your car.

5 of 5 Fast free shipping!!!!!!! April 26, 2020
Reviewer: Bryant Ramirez from Phoenix, AZ United States  
I ordered this intercooler and also some parts from a company that starts with VR and ends with SF...... I ordered parts from the other company on the 15TH, I ordered parts with ARM on the 20th. Both free shipping, except with ARM I got it in 2 days across the opposite coast, and it was the 22nd and the other company BARELY shipped out my product. Thank you for the awesome customer service from ARM, and freaky fast and free shipping!!!!! WILL be repping this company and not the other company, seriously great job guys!
