Like other components of cooling systems, upgrades to oil cooling systems are often overlooked. Overheated oil struggles to lubricate the engine properly – harming internals over time. On any car making significantly more power than factory, or any car tracked or driven hard; upgraded oil coolers are essential for maintaining optimal temperatures – in turn, lengthening oil and engine life.
Summer is in full effect and not only is it the busiest time of the year for us here at CSF, but it’s the peak of the car show season. From the cars and coffee weekly meetups and the countless car shows taking place in the summer heat, it’s finally good to be indoors with the AC on blast. Spocom 2019 was a huge success, CSF brought the RUF 996 RTurbo Porsche and the S55 swapped BMW E30 to stage at our booth, both cars rolling in with the radiator fans blasting after just finishing a shoot with Matt Farah’s Smoking Tire, One-Take, check out the video HERE. This year’s show took place in a larger section at the Anaheim Convention Center compared to the previous years. I would think the spacing would be a bit more spread out due to the space, but I was wrong. They took advantage of the extra space and filled every nook and cranny.
Greetings from across the pond!! The Players Classic Show kicked off last weekend at the world-famous Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester England. This will be a two-part journey that will take you through both days of the event. If you’ve never experienced this show, I must say it’s one to put on your bucket list. This two-day event begins with a proper car show and track day. The second day they line up a slew of cars on the main straight and pits so there’s plenty to see for every enthusiast. What makes this show interesting for someone from the United States is you get to see a lot of the European exclusive models and it’s great to see some American cars on foreign soil. This is our third year as a sponsor of the event and the CSF brand continues to grow as we see more cars outfitted with CSF cooling products.
With May coming to an end and just a few weeks shy of summer, car shows and caravans are in full swing here in Southern California. CSF geared up and prepared for the 20th year anniversary of Bimmerfest, the largest private BMW gathering in the world. Hosted in our back yard, Auto Club Speedway that is less than 10 minutes away from our headquarters. This is one of the biggest events of the year that we attend considering BMW is our strongest market. Check out our Bimmerfest 2018 recap if you missed it last year. And against the odds, Southern California decided it wanted to show chances of rain in the forecast for the big weekend. Not only was there Bimmerfest to look forward to, but it was also Memorial Day weekend! We had our ponchos on stand-by, set our alarm clocks for the big day and were ready to kick-off the weekend with a bang!
The E30 is a true icon of German engineering and performance. As the years pass by, the prices continue to climb it seems and more enthusiasts want to get their hands on one. To this day I still miss mine, wish I never got rid of it.
CSF’s pursuit of cooling perfection continues with improvements to The Ultimate BMW B58 High Performance Heat Exchanger. As of October 2019, CSF has released a new and improved “Version 2.0” of the BMW B58 Heat Exchanger. Improvements include the following Three (3) key updates:
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.
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.
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. Read more…
