ar design: Forge Motorsport Intercooler & DDV Kit - best pricing PERIOD!!

Forge Motorsport N54 Intercooler - $899

Order Here:

This upgraded intercooler has been designed as a much larger and more efficient replacement for the BMW 135i & 335i. After considerable trials with different intercoolers cores, Forge found that the most efficient for these models, was a core of bar and plate design, and along with an overall increase in dimensions they have been able to improve the cooling ability and reduce the pressure loss across when compared to stock.

Our own testing was conducted on software tuned vehicles to ensure that they would be working their hardest and the results showed inlet temperature reductions of up to 60˚F!

Owners and tuning shops have reported back with complete satisfaction, not only with the increased performance but also with the faultless install.

The upgraded intercooler is supplied with all parts required for the installation and comprehensive instructions.

Forge Motorsport N54 DDV Kit - $285

Developed specifically for BMW’s all-new N54 twin turbo motor, Forge Motorsport adds another replacement valve application to their already extensive vehicle specific and universal valve lineup.

While virtually identical in operation to the factory Bosch style valves as used on many other turbocharged applications, primarily VW and Audi, BMW has utilized a very different type of valve connection mechanism that makes their product and Forge's replacement components very unique.

Starting with the world’s best selling direct replacement Bosch style valve, Forge's 007P piston design, has revised virtually every single component of the valve body, except the internal piston, in order to retain BMW’s factory connection mechanism yet offer improved functionality in every other possible way.

The entire valve assembly is precision CNC machined from T6-6061 billet aluminum alloy on Forge's Mazak CNC milling machines. The valve is an aluminum piston based design, offering significantly improved reliability over the failure prone OEM diaphragm valves, with no change to valve response time. Forge utilizes ultra high temperature Viton brand silicone o-rings for sealing and Mobil1 fully synthetic bearing grease for lubrication.

The valves are fully tunable for both boost holding capacity and response, by way of proprietary interchangeable springs and shims (washers to marginally adjust preload). By utilizing this method of valve tuning with different custom spring rates, the valves will retain the maximum range of piston travel and flow volume regardless of which spring rate is used. Valves with a singular spring requiring that adjustments be made by continually adding preload will suffer from decreased piston or diaphragm travel as the spring tension is increased. Though these types of valves may hold high boost levels under load, they will actually suffer from limited flow volume at throttle lift when the valve vents.

The hoses included in the kit are a custom made multi-layer fabric reinforced flexible silicone hose that are designed to allow compatibility with the stock airbox and charge piping setup without any permanent modification being required to adapt these replacement valves.

Even the included hose clamps are overkill. They are specifically designed for use with silicone hoses, utilizing a beveled band edge and a pressed in drive mechanism instead of perforated. They are even approved by NATO for international military use.

All told, this direct replacement valve kit will be suitable for a bone stock car to a heavily modified one. They can be installed on the car right on the showroom floor and they will last well past having upgraded you intake, exhaust, and ECU software. They are capable of handling an infinitely wider range of boost pressure, more reliably, than the OEM valves, and they carry an unlimited lifetime warranty and money back guarantee.

Kit Includes:
- 2 Billet Aluminum Forge Diverter Valves
- Black Silicone Hose
- Detailed Installation Instructions

Available in Machined Alloy or Black.
