Forge Motorsport BMW 135i (F20) Motorsport Intercooler Hoses
The latest upgrade from the silicone boffins at Forge Motorsport is a pair of race-quality intercooler hoses for BMWâ€™s superb F20 variant of the 135i. Designed as direct replacement for the factory parts, and featuring a smart CNC-machined coupling system to allow each hose to connect directly to the OEM fittings, the Forge upgrade offers a significant enhancement over the originals, with a much greater resistance to heat-cycling and fatigue, making them ideal for tuned or competition cars.
Not only are all Forge hoses designed to withstand much higher pressures and temperatures than any original equipment hose, they are also available in three different colourways, including the discreet looking black finish for those looking to create a real â€˜OEM+â€™ engine bay, or red and blue for those that arenâ€™tâ€¦
Each hose has been designed and developed here in the UK and uses fabric reinforcement inside the finest quality European-sourced silicone. Each part precisely apes its OEM counterpart, precisely following the factory routing, and is a direct replacement with no modification needed, fitting in just a few minutes. As well as significantly enhancing the under-bonnet appearance of any 135i, these hoses will dramatically outlast the original part. The Forge replacements fit in seconds, thanks to the companyâ€™s insistence on precisely replicating the original mounting flanges – only in far more attractive CNC-billet aluminium.
Not only do these hoses make a great insurance policy on a standard car, but it is also an essential upgrade on a remapped or modified machine.
