i need help choosing a intercooler

I got a e90 335i, jb4,dci, res delete, 2nd cat delete, and downpipes. i want to buy a new intercooler, but i do not want to spend more than 750. I want to buy the vkmotorsport one. i sent vkmotorsport the money already for the intercooler, but havent heard anything back. The email and phone number on their website dont work either. What do you all think i should? if i get a refund, and deal doesnt go through with vk, whats my next best option??

ps-im new to this forum!

Call Mike at ETS. They offer a 5" which requires no cutting and a 7" (which I have) that requires minimal bumper cutting. Great quality!!

Just find one within your budget and it will do its job. I personally run an ETS 5" and it works great.

VK is out of business. Not sure why their website is still up. He will give your money back though.

im in the same boat only unlike some others i dont mind if i need to trim a little for fitment, my goal is greatest performance. but at the same time i dont really want to spend more than 800 MAYBE 850 shipped on one!

oh and jeff can get you setup great btw! right now he has me trying to decide between AMS and a 7" ETS

ER, ETS, AMS, Helix are all good choices. Just depends if you want to cut the bumper, budget, and if you want an integrated chargepipe.

AMS makes a really solid intercooler. If you wanted to get the big boy, spend a few extra dollars and get the AA race intercooler

i pulled the trigger on a ets with the group buy! i live in az where the temps hit 115+ during summer months ( we have 8 month summers). i didnt want to cheap out and get lower results with the godspeed, so i went with a solid and well known product!
