You will probably need an extra length of silicone as well, if I remember correctly. Why don't you give us a call: I may have to cut you an extra piece to go along with your kit. Does your ER CP come with a silicone elbow connector for the intercooler flange?

Hey Eric -

Placed my order a couple weeks back. Just wanted to confirm that since I have a 2012 335is, I will need the n55 package, correct? My order confirmation number is 14746.

Regards,
Tony

Really? They called me yesterday to tell me that they didn't have the intercoolers yet because the shipment they were expecting was delayed.

I believe I was one of the first to hop on the group buy so I'm sure they're trickling in and sending them out asap. It just helped that I was one of the first and that I live within easy driving distance of Philadelphia.

I will say that it was packaged well and the craftsmanship is incredible.

We got them. We're finishing them as we speak and shipping as we go. If you haven't heard from us yet, you will: probably today.

Everyone who placed a deposit on or before last Friday: your intercooler will ship within the hour. They're all packed up. Just waiting for that FedEx man! You should have received an invoice from us today and FedEx will email you a tracking number soon.

Feel free to post any questions or PM me.

Thanks guys!

We have been experimenting with the thermal coating process for our intercoolers. It involves dipping the intercooler into a liquid bath and then baking it, much like a powder coating, except that the material is designed to enhance thermal exchange, unlike painting or powder coating. After doing some controlled tests in our dyno cell*, we have determined that the performance gains were not worth the substantial money and effort to do the coating. We'd like to market it, but it just doesn't change performance significantly enough to warrant the work. Anyway we have a couple of brand new coolers here at Helix, that have never been installed with this thermal coating on it, and I'm willing to let them go for $799 apiece. They are the same quality Helix intercoolers as always, just thermal coated, with two threaded bores drilled in the top plate which were made in the coating process (brackets to hold them in the liquid).



*We tested a MINI stock intercooler vs. coated, since they are really easy to remove and replace on the dyno, with a 4000 cfm fan directly on the core. During a red line pull, we saw an average of 1-2 degrees cooler with the coated core. Whelp, if this were a F1 team, that would be great results, but for $100+ in coating, it's not worth it.
