Presenting the AWE Tuning BMW F8x M3/M4 ColdFront Heat Exchanger. Designed and engineered in-house at AWE Tuning and built by the experts at Griffin Thermal Products, the F8x M3/M4 ColdFront Heat Exchanger is the standard for consistent performance
Your F8x will produce 425 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque from the factory. Add additional performance, and you're susceptible to higher intake air temperatures (IATs). Higher power can mean higher intake air temperatures, and insufficiently cooled air entering the F8x motor will decrease its performance potential.
The stock charge cooler system rapidly heat soaks when subject to power pulls at 30 second intervals. By the sixth pull, IATs have climbed to over 130 Fahrenheit! In other words, without an upgraded heat exchanger, you're susceptible to heat soak, giving up some of the gains you've made from other aftermarket power upgrades.
Cue the AWE Tuning Cold Front Heat Exchanger. Swapping the stock heat exchanger for the engineered AWE Tuning ColdFront Heat Exchanger not only produces cooler and more stable IATs (peaking at just over 115 degrees after six power pulls) but also solid run-to-run consistency.
When taking the tests to the track, 0-100 mph runs show the AWE Tuning ColdFront Heat Exchanger dropping IATs from start to finish, keeping the incoming air to the F8x motor cooler than stock, even while at idle, thereby reducing heat soak.
The AWE Tuning Cold Front Heat Exchanger achieves better results than stock by presenting a 24.4% larger frontal surface area while also increasing fluid volume by 125%. Further, the construction of the AWE Tuning core utilizes specially designed tubes and fins. More surface area and better fin aerodynamics for superior heat exchange, and higher thermal reserve through increased liquid volume ensures IATs stay low and power stays consistent and ultra-reliable.
The AWE Tuning F8x ColdFront Heat Exchanger meets rigid conformity through precise TIG welds, and vacuum brazing ensures a stronger, more durable unit. The F8x ColdFront Heat Exchanger is also reinforced with a special high temperature epoxy that provides additional tube-to-header strength and helps prevent vibration leak failure, a process which is Q-1 approved--one of the toughest quality standards to achieve in the industry. Quality manufacturing that can't be found anywhere else, backed by AWE Tuning Research, that your F8x will appreciate. The F8x ColdFront Heat Exchanger is engineered to provide lower IATs at all times--from docile street driving to heavy track use. Be merciless, it can take it.
The AWE Tuning BMW F8x ColdFront Heat Exchanger is a meticulously engineered and guaranteed proven solution to heat-based power loss in the BMW F8x platform. Boasting a 125% increase in fluid volume, 24.4% increase in frontal surface area, and resulting IAT drop of 15 Fahrenheit. Enabling the full potential of the BMW F8x...now.
