GOAL: Create a direct-fit performance intercooler that outperforms the stock intercooler.
RESULTS: The Mishimoto manifold outflowed and outperformed the stock intake manifold while decreasing the pressure drop through the manifold. The Mishimoto manifold is more reliable than the factory manifold by replacing the crimped-on intercooler core with a fully welded aluminum core. In addition, the Mishimoto core is approximately 33% larger than stock and flowed up to 15% better than the stock manifold.
CONCLUSION: The Mishimoto intercooler kit is a great upgrade for those looking for more power and reliability for their S58-powered BMW.
-Create an intercooler that performs better than the stock intercooler
-The intercooler must give the customer the ability to add port fuel injection and port nitrous injection. *
-The intercooler/manifold must not increase pressure loss through the system.
