The Ultimate BMW B58 High-Performance Heat Exchanger

CSF COOLS the F-Series B58 engine

>> By:

The BMW F-series B58 engine is found in a wide array of BMW vehicles (M140i, M240i, 340i, 440i). The motor is similar to the S55 engine found in the latest generation F8x M3/M4 (and new M2 competition) in that it has an indirect water-to-air charge cooling system with a supplemental front mount heat exchanger to cool the water that circulates through the charge cooler. However, unlike the S55 motor, the BMW B58 charge cooler is built into the plastic intake manifold housing. In the meantime of continued development of its high-performance manifold charge cooler, CSF has first released their new BMW B58 heat exchanger for BMW F-Series vehicles. CSF’s new high performance B58 heat exchanger drastically reduces water temperatures in the charge cooling cycle, which in turn reduces and stabilizes the intake air temperatures of the engine.  With many unique features, included accessories, and of course, industry-leading performance, it’s without a doubt the best option on the market for every consumer whether it be for a daily driver or a high-performance race car.

Late to the party, but the best has arrived!

>> By:

It’s about damn time!” That’s what the industry shouted back when they found out that CSF would finally be releasing a high-performance BMW N54 intercooler. Late to the party considering the platform is now over ten years old, but after the overwhelming success of the CSF’s newer BMW n55 intercooler, CSF had to answer the call and supply an industry leading design to address all the shortcomings of not just the OEM unit, but also other aftermarket intercoolers.

BMW F11 M5 & F81 M3 Touring SWAGon

The Ultimate Grocery-Getters

>> By:

Feast your eyes on these two unicorn BMW F11 M5 & F81 M3 Touring Wagons…That’s right, WAGONS! Malte from Carbonfiber Dynamics is the mastermind behind this F11 5 Series Touring Wagon project. The idea was to get a grocery-getter F11 5 Series wagon and do an M5 conversion. Similar projects have been done in the past such as the BMW E39 M5 wagon conversion, an E91 M3 Wagon recently done by LTMW, and the stunning BMW F81 M3 Wagon seen above cooled by CSF as well (we’ll get to this build shortly). Considering the advanced technology in the newer F11 5 Series Touring and the F10 M5, this project will be quite a challenge.

Tyspeed BMW F87 M2 Club Racer

Menace 2 Society

>> By:

Finding another M2 built like this is like finding a word that rhymes with Orange. The first thing that came to mind when I saw the finished product was Clone Trooper and/or BB8, for all you Star Wars fans out there, you probably thought the same. Nonetheless, this Bavarian barbarian is one of a kind and ready to tear up the track.

How to be COOL in a wagon

E9x M3 cooling package featured on SPEEDHUNTERS

>> By:

What happens when a car enthusiast decides to have a family? Facing the dilemma of getting rid of a project car to make room for something more practical is not fun at all. Freddy Chang was looking for was something track-worthy and family friendly at the same time. What he ended up building is the Ultimate Family Driving Machine, an E91 M3 wagon. Working closely with So-Cal heavy hitters, LTMW, they’ve managed to trick this wagon out with almost every M3 detail imaginable; everything from the S65 V8 engine swap, with an ESS Tuning VT2-625 supercharger, to the exterior front and rear M3 fenders, and even inside with proper gauge cluseter and shift knob swap! This M wagon checks off all the boxes.
