  1. 2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    2020 F87 M2 Competition - Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Power Pack

    The Mishimoto Performance Air-to-Water Intercooler Power Pack counters the weaknesses in the BMW S55’s design, starting with the charge pipes. Cracking under pressure or splitting at the seams are common problems with factory plastic charge pipes. These can result in less than ideal situations as you pilot your M2 Competition, M3 or M4. We created a brand-new design for the charge pipes that inspire more confidence in handling the boost pressure. Our design features a full aluminum construction with a cast midsection designed specifically to squeeze past the intake. Our charge pipe kit also includes a pair of matte black silicone couplers for a sleek and secure connection to the intercooler.

    2018 Black Sapphire Metallic F82 M4 - Pure Turbo, Snow Performance, VTT, VRSF

    There's just something special about the cool confidence of a sleeper car. A plain-looking car with serious engine work is a satisfying, grin-inducing machine that can ruin the day of an unsuspecting supercar owner. That's the sort of thing the owner of this M4 wanted when they reached out to us. The goal was to have a very fast car that looked stock on the outside--And under the hood! We upgraded the turbos, exhaust system and changed up the fuel system to run on E85 and methanol only. To help engine longevity, we also installed the VTT Spline Lock Crank Hub Solution. Cary Jordan supplied the Bootmod3 flash tune and helped us reach 706 horsepower at the wheels, with 658 wheel torque. The only thing that might give away the true potential of this particular car would be the loud exhaust. Otherwise, this black beast is one hell of a street sleeper!

  3. Alpine White 1M gets Brembo Brakes

    This Alpine White baby M car returned for some big boy brakes. Having previously been here for exhaust, coilovers, wheels and exterior mods, it was finally time to add the finishing touch to this built E82. Opting for a set of red Brembo GT brakes with 380mm Type 3 rotors, this 1M not only looks amazing, but it will probably pull your face off under hard braking. Enjoy!

  4. 1M gets Ohlins Coilovers and BBS FI Wheels

    This Alpine White 1M Coupe is certainly no stranger to our shop; the last time it was here we installed a full Akrapovic titanium exhaust system. This time we focused on the suspension, wheels and engine. First on this E82's list was installing the Ohlins DFV Road & Track coilovers, which lowered the car to a more aggressive ride height, improved the handling performance and maintained an acceptable level of daily driver comfort. Next we mounted up a set of 19" BBS FI wheels, which are almost certainly the most coveted wheels among the BMW community, along with an MRG titanium racing stud conversion kit. Under the hood, we swapped out the OEM intercooler with a much larger Forge Motorsport one and installed an Evolution Racewerks diverter valve charge pipe, both of which will work to improve the twin turbos' power delivery. Along with the carbon fiber Akra tips, this 1M's exterior is also adorned with a BMW Performance spoiler, Vorsteiner diffuser, Lightweight Performance front lip and an iND Painted cosmetic package. On the inside, a BMW Performance electronic steering wheel brings the whole car together. Enjoy.
