135i and 335i Power Kit
The BMW Performance power kit for the BMW 135i and BMW 335i redefines engine performance. The effects of the modifications to the engine tuning parameters include increased torque of 317 ft-lbs (manual) or 332 ft-lbs (automatic) available from just 1,500 rpm, plus increased maximum output of 320 horsepower. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, meanwhile, remain the same as for the standard model and naturally, warranty validity and vehicle quality are not compromised in any way.

BMW 135i/335i/535i Intercoolers
The HorsepowerFreaks 135i/335i/535i intercoolers set the high bar in performance, reliability, ease of installation, durability and visual appeal. Their intercoolers are 87% larger than the factory intercooler and pick up a sizeable 10-30rwhp at just 11psi while showing even greater gains when other power adders are used. These are the largest aftermarket intercoolers on the market for the 135i, 335i and 535i that fit within the factory location. Their cores are 20.25 inches wide by 5.75 inches tall and 7-inches deep for a massive 815 total cubic inches. Their intercoolers are also one of the easiest to install (in less than one hour) as they utilize the factory mounting tabs, factory c-clip couplers and don't require any silicon couplers or extra hose clamps. The HPF intercoolers drastically drop the intake air temps without adding any additional turbo lag over your stock intercooler. Lower intake temperatures result in greater power delivery and the harder you run your car, the larger the gains you're going to see with their intercoolers.
XLE By-Pass Valve
The COBB XLE BPV is a compact and lightweight by-pass valve capable of holding very high boost pressures without leaking. Its unique design allows extremely fast venting of boost when actuated. It is designed to operate in multiple venting modes and can be quickly reconfigured using simple hand tools. Innovative engineering and precision manufacturing result in a compact package able to fit in the confines of a tight engine bay. The aluminum construction is highly durable and rugged, and is ideal for both street and racing applications for both stock and aftermarket turbochargers. The lightweight aluminum piston allows faster reaction times and the rounded piston profile smoothes airflow for faster venting. The rounded piston bottom mates with a rounded seat for superior sealing when closed.
