The ARM Motorsports 7” FMIC is the ultimate intercooler upgrade for the N54 and N55 powered E90/E92 335i and 335xi available from ARM. With almost a 30% increase in size over our 5" intercooler upgrade, our 7" FMIC is the perfect solution if you're maxing out your OEM turbochargers or running a turbo upgrade.
At the heart of the ARM 7” FMIC is the intercooler core with our all new ULTRA-Dense fin packs. With 18 fins per inch, the ARM 7” FMIC is at the top of its class for core density and cooling performance. Not surprisingly, it can cool the charged air of your 335i as efficiently as intercoolers larger than it, without the pressure loss associated with those larger intercooler upgrades.
The ARM 7” FMIC measures 20 x 7 x 5.75 inches for a total of 805 cubic inches, almost DOUBLE the size of the OEM 335i intercooler and 180 cu in larger than our 5” FMIC. Combined with our Ultra-Dense fin packs, not only are you getting a substantially larger intercooler, but also one that utilizes its size efficiently for maximum cooling performance.
COOLING INTAKE AIR TEMPERATURES
While testing the 7" FMIC for it's ability to cool the charged air, we found that IAT's increased only three degrees. Considering our baseline test with the OEM intercooler resulted in a performance-robbing IAT increase of sixty degrees, the ARM 7" FMIC has 95% better cooling performance than the OEM 335i intercooler.
The ARM 7” FMIC is the first ever intercooler upgrade for the E90/E92 335i that has been engineered with CAD designed CNC aluminum connectors for you to utilize either the OEM intercooler hoses or the ARM FMIC Hose Upgrade. Opting to utilize the OEM connectors will make for a faster and fully reversible install. While upgrading your 335i to the massive ARM 3in. intercooler hoses, you will be giving your 335i maximum airflow by removing any restriction the OEM connections may have on the charged air.
When testing the 7" FMIC on a Stage 2+ N54 335i we found it made an average of 10whp/10wtq over our 5" FMIC upgrade and 35whp/38wtq over the OEM intercooler!
