BMW 135/335 Intercooler Kit Sport Version by Active Autowerke
Noticed that you have upgraded your 335 or 135's power but haven't addressed cooling, we have the answer. Our race inspired 135 & 335 intercooler kit upgrade has been designed to handle the increase in power more efficiently. Whether you are heading out for a weekend track session or taking your twin turbocharged car to 'The One Lap of America' race this upgrade will handle the challenge.
Factory intercoolers work well on factory 135i’s, but with added boost comes added heat load. To overcome this, Active Autowerke’s unit stands tall and way up front, catching more air with the help an 88% larger core and a specially designed shroud. Not looking for something quite this aggressive you may want to consider the Active Autowerke 335 sport intercooler kit.
Our tests show an air temp drop of close to 30° F in the intake manifold, with a gain of 12 usable rear wheel HP on a Mustang MD250 dynamometer. btw: the ambient temperature in our shop measured a scorching 92°F during the session. This thing works.
About Active Autowerke
A passion to be world classBrothers Mike and Karl Hugh were bred to play with power, it seems. As young men growing up on an island, doing things correctly for oneself became their ingrained credo. Their adolescent projects – bicycles and dirt bikes – were always the best performing. And that soon set the tone for the BMW tuning hobby they graduated to.
By 1981, Mike and Karl were ready to get serious about their longstanding passion for a higher standard of BMW performance. Active Autowerke was born. Their motto at the time: "Anything and Everything BMW". They probably should have included “everyone” in there, too – since the endeavor was a classic family affair – with many branches of the Hugh family tree pooling their talents.
The timing was ideal, and the company quickly grew as America’s motoring public developed a healthy appetite for the Bavarian treat. Soon Active Autowerke had grown into the largest independent BMW service center in Florida – with the most sophisticated equipment arsenal in the industry, certifications from leading componentry firms such as the Robert Bosch Corporation, and repute for setting the benchmark for service, integrity and professionalism.
But this was just the beginning of the story.
By late 1995, Karl realized precisely what the future was all about, as he focused the company back toward its purest roots: the addictive thrill of turning a fast BMW ... into a faster BMW. A BMW with aspirations far beyond the norm.
As a graduate of University of Miami School of Engineering with a specialty in Internal Combustion Engines, Karl began to work in earnest on this vision. In less than a year, working with some of the most respected professionals in automobile performance, the first Active Autowerke M3 & 325i Turbo Kits were born.
Many rave reviews and magazine articles later, these kits and their many successors since have become well known for their durability, clever bolt-on engineering, affordable pricing – and their ability to breathe fire into the everyday BMW and its owner. No longer a brand known just around Florida, today’s Active Autowerke is known worldwide for its line of flawlessly engineered and manufactured performance parts for the entire Beemer.
Yet this, it seems, is still just the middle of the story.
As new models and challenges continue to be born, Active Autowerke continues to invent – and deliver – world class, new ideas and innovations that make them run better. The Hugh brothers can’t help it. It’s been in their genes from the beginning.
