X6 3.5i FMIC on e82/e92

I was just checking the FMIC's, and it sucked I couldnt find a cheap one with good quality here in germany.

So I thought....whats up with the N54 engine in the X6.
That car is so heavy, imagine the heatsoak if you do a few accelerations.
The X6 needs moar cooling...

So, fact is, price is 190Euro (~200$)
It looks the same (exept bigger)
Stock mounting.
135i FMIC

X6 35i FMIC


Links fixed!


Man, 200$, thats nothing.
Im gonna order this part and check it.


Thoughts?

Go for it. Links don't work for me, but I know what you're talking about. Even though it looks the same only bigger, I'd imagine fitting it in there will be a major headache. Would be a helluva project, and an interesting one to follow, though. Best of luck.

I get what you're saying, but at the same time, you have to remember that our HPFPs are "OEM quality" as well. I'd be willing to bet many of these aftermarket IC's are of better quality build than the OEM ones.

Agree, not to mention some restriction, or narrowing in the stock piping.

I checked out the realOEM links. Question: how can you see the dimensions of the two ICs? Sure, the X6 looks bigger but how much bigger?

Not sure how accurate the photos are, but it looks as if the drivers side pipe connection is at a differnt angle and with the oem type connnections dont allow for any play/angle changes.

Unfortunately I don't. But outside of being an enthusiast, I have two hands, elbow grease and could possibly share some cold ones.

No problem. As soon as I get home later from work. Are you picking this up today? Or tomorrow? BMW Vaihingen? If it's tomorrow, I could meet you and bring it, if that's better for you? Let me know.

They don't look that much different in the pics to me - I am betting it isn't much bigger if at all, but will be a great idea if it really is bigger!
