Time to break open the stock tank and see what lies within. If you follow some of our other development projects, you would know that we recently split an E46 3-series expansion tank and found quite a complex system including both internal and external features. Although this added some complexity and difficulty to the project, it seemed like our engineers enjoyed the challenge.
As many of you may know, we’ve recently been tackling a ton of neat products for the E46 3-series. This includes an aluminum radiator, aluminum coolant expansion tank, silicone coolant hose kit, and direct-fit electric fan kit. Along with all these cooling products, we also wanted to tackle an intake system that would bring out a more aggressive induction tone compared to the stock airbox … Continue Reading ››
Enthusiast groups’ feedback plays a massive role in our product development process. Not only is it a great way to bounce ideas off our potential customers, but it also allows us to see exactly what our customers want and need for their vehicles. This project is no different. Due to a substantial amount of demand via forums and social media, we decided it was time to get the ball rolling on this coolant expansion project.

This project is another one on our list that we decided to tackle after receiving numerous requests from the enthusiasts’ boards, most notably the fellas over at e46fanatics.com. After developing and testing a very efficient radiator for M3 models of this generation, the non-M world identified a critical need for a more reliable radiator solution. As with most BMW vehicles, plastic components within the cooling system necessitate … Continue Reading ››
