The BMW F80 M3, F82/F83 M4 & F87 M2 Competiton are still regarded as some of the best performance platforms available. BMW’s S55 Motor has amazing potential for power and there are countless performance parts available for it. However, like most production engines, the S55 doesn’t come equipped from the factory with sufficient cooling capabilities to cope with added power or even prolonged performance driving. CSF have designed a full line of S55 cooling options to help you get the most out of your BMW F8X. The CSF Charge-Air-Cooler, Heat Exchanger, and Transmission Cooler will keep you ahead of the competition.


As we dicussed with the Charge-Air-Cooler, the S55 power BMW F8X suffers heavily from heat soak. While the ideal solution is pairing the Front Mount Heat Exchanger with the Charge-Air-Cooler, you can still see signification improvements with just the Heat Exchanger. The ability for the system to remove as much heat as possible is the bigger of the two weak points in the system. So if you are planning to upgrade your S55 cooling system and can only start with one, the Heat Exchanger is the right choice to start with.

The CSF Front Mount Heat Exchanger is a direct replacement for BMW part number 17112284608.
