*I'm going to preface this by letting you know that I was chose to test the first ever VRSF HD Core intercooler for the N55 F10. Since this intercooler has not been officially released yet, I can not share the pictures of it. Once Tiago and VRSF does their official release, I will update with my pictures.*

Test car - 2012 BMW 535ix FBO, Pure Stage 2 Turbo on the conservative 93 tune of about 20psi.

***THE RESULTS***

*STOCK*
-2nd-5th Gear Pull. 52 degree ambient temp. 2,500rpm to redline
Iats started at 66 degrees and rose to 144 degrees. The car felt sluggish on the top end and started pulling timing, because of the very high Iats.

-4th Gear Pull. 52 degree ambient. 2,500rpm to redline
Iats started at 58 degrees and rose to 93 degrees.

*VRSF*
-2nd-5th Gear Pull. 54 degree ambient.
2,500rpm-redline
Iats started 60 degrees and only rose to 63 degrees.

-4th Gear Pull. 48 degree ambient
2,500rpm to redline
Iats started at 59 degrees, dropped to 50 degrees, then rose to 52 degrees at redline.


*Conclusion*
The new VRSF HD CORE INTERCOOLER for the F10 N55 is by far the the best option on the market!!! During the 4th gear pull, iats actually dropped by 10 degrees during the pull and only raised a few more at redline. Thats a -45 degree difference over stock. The 2nd-5th gear log is amazing. My iats now only rose 3 degrees! 3!! That's a -75 degree difference over stock!! The car felt more alive, timing stayed up, everything just felt tighter. There is not an increase in lag. The turbo came on almost quicker. I would reccomend this intercooler to everyone with a F10 N55! You can not beat it!
