Active Autowerke Rear Exhaust System

To order please visit our website by clicking HERE

The Active Autowerke M235i BMW Rear Exhaust System provides increase in BMW horsepower, great sound and appearance making it the choice for the avid BMW enthusiast. The system is a straight-through design providing substantial improvements to gas flow over the factory exhaust. Gone is the factory flapper to change exhaust tones; this BMW Performance exhaust doesn't need gimmicks to accomplish baritones or suffer from problems like sticking flappers that will happen due to exhaust build up. Instead, the sound come out non intrusive, with a rich mellow tone and delivers a solid 15+hp, with key gains in the mid-range. Listen to the video and judge for yourself.

Rather than creating a complete exhaust system, Active Autowerke opted for a compact design built in a smaller package to deliver more value to the BMW end user. Just like replacing the BMW factory rear exhaust, the Active Autowerke BMW Performance rear exhaust does it in much the same way, if not better by using a much beefier, heavy duty Torca style exhaust clamp. Torca clamps are known for their strength and sealing capabilities to make that tight seal. Other cool features like height adjustable mounting tabs also help to make this exhaust very east to install.

Active Autowerke Catless Downpipe

To order please visit our website by clicking HERE

The Active Autowerke N55 downpipe for the M235i helps unleash some of the potential that is restricted by the OEM downpipe. Turbochargers are powered by spent exhaust gases created during the combustion process. The quicker these gases are evacuated, the better. Unfortunately, the factory down pipe in the N55 is quite restrictive, which results in slower exhaust gases and slower turbo spool. The Active Autowerke F-Chassis N55 Signature down pipe utilizes 3.5” diameter stainless steel piping in order to provide more power, quicker spool, and extreme durability. Constructed entirely from 304 stainless steel with 1.5MM wall thickness, we are confident that you’ll be pleased with how robust and durable this down pipe is Trouble-free installation and a long lifespan ensure that you’ll enjoy many miles of performance with your N55.

Active Autowerke Intercooler Kit

To order please visit our website by clicking HERE

Designed from inception, this BMW N20/N26/N55 intercooler has the largest swept area that could possibly be fitted within the narrow space confines that the BMW factory allowed and the stepped design takes advantage of more area closer to the front of the factory bumper cover. Simply put, this BMW intercooler will perform and deliver consistent, reliable power run after run without power robbing heat soak. No permanent modifications or cutting are required for installation. This Active Autowerke BMW N20/N26/N55 intercooler features the industry standard of a bar and plate core design with seamless cast end tanks that retain the OEM quick connect connectors! Proper OEM placement of heavy duty mounting tabs ensure a good fitment.

Install the Active Autowerke BMW F-Chassis N20/N26/N55 intercooler for nearly factory-like fitment and experience the meaning of sustainable BMW power in a compact package. The factory intercooler may be adequate for the stock power, but with raised boost comes more heat to dissipate. To overcome this...a larger intercooler is the answer. On the dyno we've seen temperature differences up to 42* F compared to the stock intercooler after repeated runs. Our stepped intercooler helps to maintain power over extended periods of time and will also yield a gain of 15-20 whp on stock cars, with modified vehicles seeing 25+whp gains

Active Autowerke Aluminum Charge Pipe Kit

To order please visit our website by clicking HERE

Active Autowerke is familiar with some of the issues that 2012 and newer N55 BMW M235i owners experience even running with the factory BMW boost. The BMW N55 utilizes an all plastic construction for the factory charge pipe. This charge pipe will eventually break, it is just a matter of time and when. Whenever the factory charge pipe break at the plastic seam, the engine immediately senses a huge vacuum leak where the engine ECU counters by sending the engine into a Limp mode condition. Usually, the car's performance will feel diminished and lack luster as if running without a proper firing cylinder.

The Active Autowerke N55 Charge Pipe is a designated product designed from inception to cure and eliminate this problem on your BMW. Constructed from all aluminum makes this charge pipe almost indestructible. The connection to the throttle body is a CNC machined part to duplicate the factory fit as well making a tight, reliable seal. Owners of BMW with the N55 engine understands that additional power can be reliably maintained with the use of Water/Methanol injection as an added feature. However, the N55 current does not have a reliable source to accommodate the application of a Water/Methanol nozzles.

Consistent diameter tubing for increased performance
Increased throttle response and decrease throttle lag
CNC machined throttle housing for a poper seal
Retains factory BMW O-Ring seal
