Talking Active Autowerke Intercooler DIY From BMW DIY Guy

Per BMW DIY GUY

I wanted to follow up my charge pipe installation DIY, with the logical next step of the intercooler.

**Full disclosure, I worked with Mike of Extreme Power House directly in this project**

Simply.. WOAH. The factory intercooler is like 40% the size and 30% the weight of the new FMIC. Laying them both side by side is really impressive just to look at alone. The AA FMIC is an impressive and heavy upgrade! Even the welding work is impressive, at least to me.

I got the installation done today, and the video posted to Youtube. The install is really straight forward and takes simple tools. I *highly* recommend this upgrade, especially if you are walking down the performance path of JB4, CP, and (hopefully for me next)the downpipe and exhaust.

All in all really impressive, and the butt dyno says things are getting sharper in response and quicker in get up and go.

Thanks and I welcome any questions and feedback. Thank you to Mike of Extreme Power House, who has been amazing to work with this whole time!

most places have the AA FMIC listed at 19lbs. i believe the stock weighs around 7.5lbs. so the AA FMIC is around 11lbs heavier than stock.
