Very nice intercooler. I was wondering why you guys had not released as much BMW hardware as you have done in the past with other platforms.

Do you have any plans to do N54 DP's?

looks good, fmic price is a tad expensive considering it is the same design as helix but is priced about 10-15% higher

being honest here, i am a fan of cobb and utilize their products myself

What makes it technically superior to the helix?

I chose helix as the basis of the comparison since the design and included parts are similar.

I am interested to learn. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Same thing on the n54

It's because the high iat from the terrible stock fmic restrict boost more than the downpipes.

Fmic allows for more aggressive targeting.

The Stage2 maps make slightly more power than Stage1, however the Stage1+ maps will make more power than Stage2 as the FMIC is a bigger restriction than the downpipe (similar to the N54). If you have both mods, Stage2 will keep the light off on your dash, but you'll have more power with Stage1+. The Stage2+ maps will be out very soon and these will be designed for a fully bolt-on car.

I like how the site lists the 2011 135i and 2013 135is, but no 2012 135i.....fuck us right?


Is there a timeline of when we might expect to see anything done with the 2012s? I really dont understand why all the other companies that released stuff for the N55 did so covering all N55 years yet Cobb can only do 2011s?

Thats because as far as the N55 goes thats as far as they've gone but the 2013 135is is an n54.

I don't think so... but correct me if I'm wrong:

n54 for 135i ended a few years ago. Only continued in the 1M.

Question: Will the Car still throw O2 Sensor codes with these DPs?

I would guess no due to it being catted but I could be wrong.

Catted DP still throws a code, all of them released so far. I'm sure the tune suppresses the code.

Not all.

Wagner Tuning claim no codes thus far in numerous tests with their catted DP.
