    • 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.

        I'd be very interested in seeing a bespoke version for the E70 X5 35d, any chance the Wagner folks would be interested in getting their hands on a stock one? Turner's got the E70 part no 17517805150 listed for $262.99 (and it's a different part number from the 335d IC).

        I don't speak to anyone at Wagner so I have no clue. Why can't the 335d intercooler be adapted?

        There's nothing indicating it can't be. The only question is fitment. I called Wagner earlier today and one of the guys said he'd email overlayed cad drawings of the E70 35d ic and the Wagner 335d ic, but it might have gotten lost in the shuffle. I've actually just sent an email re-requesting those drawings (for posting here). If it's just a matter of moving tabs around, I'll probably order one as a guinea pig since I know some pretty talented tig welders (salt car guys... 300mph is slow to them and they burn 3 gallons per mile in their turbo gas roadster).

        Very good!

        Ya, I think it can be adapted and you may the one to get this setup going on an X5. How about that, Bimmerboost responsible for some progress on the diesel front on various models.

        Please get those drawings to post.

        Also tell Wagner there is a lot of interesting in the diesel tuning.

        I spoke with Nick at Wagner, the i/c's for the 335d have arrived. It looks like Germany only shipped 20 instead of 50 (makes sense, there should be a much larger market in the EU for this). He's already sold several, so heads up if you intend to buy one.
