The fleabay intercooler is not the same one as Big Tom's. Big Tom's has better internals and plus the V mount intercoolers you're thinking of have terrible reviews.

The issue is shipping so I'm talking with KL racing to see what the best deal is to be shipped to all these addresses.

That's not what people were saying earlier in this thread.. ?

Regardless.. You can get custom size intercoolers from Bell Intercooler for about the same price.

Quality is probably better too.

Bell Intercoolers are atleast $150 more (according to http://www.bellintercoolers.com/pages/aachart350.html) and to speak on quality when they haven't even been tried on our cars is premature...

Correct. It's a3.5" core instead of 4".

And you have side by side picture proof showing the difference between the two? Where were the terrible reviews?

So, how much did it cost you for intercooler and shipping? I want to order one as well.

Thanks,

OK. My mistake.. I misread the the price, but they are still significantly cheaper than the other 335i options and they will make whatever size/config you need.

As far as I know, the quality of an intercooler has nothing to do with what car it is placed on. Bell has a great reputation from what I have read around the web.

I am not affiliated with Bell, just thought I would throw out them as another DIY option. If you are not comfortable with fleabay quality, but don't want to spend $1k, then they are probably a good option.

They don't have a 4" thick option unfortunately.

This introduction of Bell is completely useless.

Here we have OP presenting us with an intercooler he's actually tried and it's done fantastic. Not only that it's CHEAPER than the rest of the competition.

Update:

I had spoken with someone from KL racing. Basically I got a groupbuy discount of about 15%. All depends on how many people actually purchase.

The issue was that I called several times today with no response to set it up.

Therefore until I get an answer I can't post up a certain price for purchasing.

Tomorrow is a new day...

The OP's IC was found in SWEDEN. Until someone else starts helping find a decent IC in the US that is somewhat reasonably priced and not one of the ebay ones that you claim are junk, I think I am helping somewhat....

You didn't even bother looking at the dimensions...

If you want to help find a cheaper, better intercooler; instead of criticizing blindly.


The IC being from Sweden with all parts not included is still cheaper than any IC in the e90 market currently, by the way.

Damn I don't even know what all the talk is about. $300.00 is nothing much compared to what other brands are asking for their intercoolers.
At least this is a better upgrade than running on stock!

I agree and that's reasonable.

It's just great to see that Big Tom did well on all those runs with the new intercooler in place.

I spoke with the rep from Sweden.

She said there are 10 intercoolers left @ $338 shipped for normal pricing.

I can do it for slightly less if we do a groupbuy, but not sure if it's worth it.
