Thumbs up HPF Enters the 135i/335i Market With Their New 335i Intercooler - VIDEO and PICTURES

HorsepowerFreaks Sponsors E90Post.com

For those that don't know who we are, I wanted to introduce myself since I am relatively new to this forum. My name is Chris Bergemann and I'm the owner of HorsepowerFreaks. We are proud to be sponsoring E90post.com and look forward to working with the E90post forum and their staff to introduce many new projects and applications that we will be bringing to market over the next several years for the BMW 135i/335i enthusiast.

Over the next few years, I hope to share a lot of what we've learned through our E9X project development as we did for the E46 M3 on e46fanatics.com and bimmerforums.com. We took the E46 M3 from 270rwhp to 1022rwhp through 5 bolt-on stages and hope to offer a similar set of stages for the 135i and 335i platforms. We are currently in development of our stage 1 (BPU) upgrade which includes an intercooler, exhaust system and "end user" programmable engine management. We hope to have our first stage 1 335i on display at MFest 2010 in April.

BMW 135i/335i Front Mount Intercooler

Specifics

We just completed and tested our BMW 135i/335i Front Mount Intercooler. We designed the HorsepowerFreaks 135i/335i intercoolers to set the high bar in performance, reliability, ease of installation, durability and visual appeal. Our intercoolers are 87% larger than the factory intercooler and pick up a sizeable 10-30rwhp at just 11psi while showing even greater gains when other power adders are used. These are the largest aftermarket intercoolers on the market for the 135i and 335i that fit within the factory location. Our cores are 20.25 inches wide by 5.75 inches tall and 7 inches deep for a massive 815 total cubic inches. Our intercoolers are also one of the easiest to install (in less than one hour) as they utilize the factory mounting tabs, factory c-clip couplers and don't require any silicon couplers or extra hose clamps. Our intercoolers are the only ones that utilize the sway bar mounting tabs to create a structural reinforcement that holds the intercooler tightly in place and our intercoolers fit within the factory grill and do not interfere with the radiator airflow. Our HPF intercoolers drastically drop the intake air temps without adding any additional turbo lag over your stock intercooler. Lower intake temperatures result in greater power delivery and the harder you run your car, the larger the gains you're going to see with our intercoolers. Whether you're running your 135i/335i as a daily driver or have already turned it into an all out track car, this intercooler will get you the power you need.



Features
  • Over 87% more internal flow area than stock
  • High flow large radius cast end tanks for smooth, less turbulant air-flow
  • Factory style billet quick disconnect c-clip couplers
  • Fan shroud mounting retainers
  • Efficient bar and plate intercooler core design
  • No need for silicon couplers or hose clamps
  • Utilizes the factory O-ring compressor pipes
  • Utilizes the factory mounts and additional stainless lower brackets for added rigidity
  • 20.25" wide X 5.75" tall X 7" deep
  • 815 cubic inches of cooling (factory is 435 cubic inches)
  • Designed for up to 650rwhp
  • Fully polished to an extremely high luster





More to Come

I will let everyone know when more new products become available and feel free to email me any feedback you might have on these products.

Chris.

I thought your company came out with a High Performance Fuel Pump by your name.

BMW can't even find one that works and it's been 3 years.

Wow...I was just in the market for an intercooler This looks really nice, I especially like the factory mounting circlip and the cleanliness of the install. Big intercooler with little trimming needed...nice !

Unfortunately, although the 2 brackets show that you care, they don't do much to protect the fragile factory intercooler mountings from vertical forces (from bumps). However, they do seem to protect the intercooler in the case of lateral forces and acceleration forces, which is good.

Have you guys tested the fitting on LCI models ? I have a LCI with M-Sport and I don't know if it will fit...

It's a very serious option for me !

I think those bracket are made of steel and looks to be sturdy enough for both lateral and vertical force...If the brace was aluminum, then maybe..
As soon as I saw the video, I already know this is the FMIC that I will decide to install on my car.....
