Hi M6Roar, I also found exactly the 3 intercoolers. Would also be interested in whether it is useful and which of those 3 is best.

There is a 4th one belongs to projectgamma, the most used in my opinion is CSF.

The reason I was looking for chargcoolers is because my climate is hot and it would lose efficiency during pulls. It depend on your climate and how much boost you are going for, higher boost = higher temps.

You can datalog IAT and see if replacing your intercoolers worth it or not, if your car is pulling timing due to high IAT then you should go for it.

Here is what I have ended up with since i am not pushing above 22PSI.
You did a pristine job, as always

Let's see if I'm able to follow you and complete my WMI before next summer

Thank you for your help and suggestions

I can't comment on which is better because I didn't used any.

However CSF is the most used in the M6/M5 community, at the end they will all server the same purpose and its matter of preference.

I ordered the intercooler from VRSF and I hope I haven't made a mistake. Have you received one yet?

Unfortunately the delivery date kept changing since Oct so I requested a refund, purchased two used OEM coolers and tapped them for meth.

Goodluck with your purchase, please share your experience when they arrive.

I talked with a couple people who have them on their M5 and did independent testing and seen a good decrease in IAT's. I plan to go with these intercoolers as well early spring pending availability.

Hi Bro,
I received my coolers, the meth kit is coming soon. I'm curious what's going on in April / May.

Wow, maybe they're a little ahead of schedule now then. I'll have to check in with them & see. Let us know how you like them.

I went with the CSF coolers after hearing of some figment issues. They fit perfectly and I'm glad I spent a couple bucks more for the quality. I believe I paid 1800usd for them.

Went with the Snow Performance meth kit, stainless braided lines under the car and the VC50 controller I still need to figure out how to mount on the dash haha.

Guy I met online. They were drop shipped. Yes just went back and looked and they were 1950 with shipping, still was much better on the price that I didn't want to take the chance on the cheaper intercoolers since there's not a lot of reviews or info on them.
