    • Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) upgrade available for BMW M57 diesel owners, E90 335d

      BMW 335d enthusiasts here on BimmerBoost have been clamoring for an intercooler upgrade. Well, their calls for an upgrade have been answering by Wagner Tuning. The intercooler is available for E90 335d models and the diesel X5 xDrive35d is not mentioned but this intercooler likely could be modified for the SUV application as well. Regardless, this piece is definitely a step in the right direction for BMW diesel fans who want upgrades for their platform.

        my order is stuck too, and on my last request they told me they are still in an early production phase.
        Does someone have numbers of an FMIC with DPF-less downpipes on a 335d (maybe even with a water-meth -kit)?
        What power is to expect from such a setup?
        I ordered the first two compnents but im still in doubt if i should get a water-meth kit or not.

        The product is on the website, but none have been built yet. The order for the first batch was placed with Wagner's supplier. I guess its presence there is a way on making the product's existence known to the marketplace.

        Based on the timeline we were given after the test fitting in Germany (6 weeks), I don't think we'll see product until at least December. And based on past experience with estimated timelines, there's no sense in trying to hold Wagner's supplier to the promised timeline. It will happen when it happens. The good news is that we know the i/c's have been ordered, so now it's just a matter of time and patience.

        I was hoping he would find a way to get one to you, maybe there is still hope! Keep in mind it's probably out of his control, he's at the mercy of his supplier. I was posting about the production quantities - I really won't hold my breath waiting, these things almost always seem to take longer than promised, it's just the way it goes. No use getting all wound up, since we know they are ordered and will come eventually.

        NEWS UPDATE:

        Alright, I called Nick at Wagner this afternoon. He told me that the i/c's have been built, and there are 50 units sitting in U.S. Customs awaiting clearance. Wagner has been told to expect a wait of 2-3 weeks for the units to clear customs and get to them.

        I asked him about testing, and he said Wagner plans to work with a shop in California to do their tests. I'll wait and let him explain the details when he is ready.

        So -- we are very close! He also said they plan to put together a group buy once they have the units in hand, so be patient. I'm still amazed that we will have a bespoke unit for our cars. Very cool.

        Ronin posted elsewhere that he is dropping his car at Terry's this week for him to install the prototype meth kit.

        Hoping for before and after dyno #'s tomorrow (before with just the JBD at 100% and then with the meth kit). Terry's hoping for some modest gains, but in talking with him today, he said he's used to rolling around in a 500whp car, so my car seemed slow both before and after the kit install...lol.

        nice, will you (or maybe already did) remove the DPF?
        Thats my next step before going to a meth kit(will be installed together with the fmic). My tuner told me that the big problem with every stronger tune for the 335d is the high exhaust temp. Removing the dpf wil give some big gains in tunability but will lead to the next problem:
        the transmisson does only take 700nm (or lets say thats the max one should use accordingly to the specs). Will you just hope it works or maybe taper the max torque output?
