E92 M3 Cooling
High Performance Radiator Options
1: M3 S/C Race Water Intercooler
The new VF620R supercharger system for the E92 2007>2014 M3 V8 features an oversize front water radiator for racers participating in “runway racing”. Often overlooked by designers, cooling systems must be designed with the capacity to sustain full throttle through 4 gears without releasing throttle. It requires tremendous design tolerance not only in the fuel management but also in the charge cooling department.
After extensive data logging with independent thermocouples throughout the air system, VF-Engineers found that upgrading the water cooler radiator kept air temps down through successive gears and not just a dyno pull in a single gear. Analytics can be catered to show benefits of an upgrade, but we put this system to test on 16-19 psi supercharger setups to explore its potential. Positive results meant that we introduced this product immediately for the 6-10psi kits and not just our 17psi fully race built engine kits.
This upgrade is fully compatible for street use kits and available to purchase as an upgrade to replace your existing “street” radiator originally supplied with your VF-Engineering supercharger kit. The radiator shown in the image above is the item described.

2: M3 Engine Oil Cooler
The VF-Engineering E9x M3 Oil cooler is the latest solution available for the s65 engine oil system. Production manufactured by CSF for VFE and utilizing the latest in technology, the VF oil cooler contains densely packed bars and plates to provide the greatest surface area for heat exchange. Complimented as well with 2 extra rows of cooling, the advantages over the factory oil cooler are more than what meets the eye when put side-to-side by your current factory cooler.Precise, factory fitment allows for easy 1-for-1 installation. No modifications are required. **Note: BMW superseded the 2 oil lines on
E9x M3s built around and prior to 03/08 and oil coolers require
the use of the current spec BMW oil lines.
The VFE M3 oil cooler is also compatible with all surrounding modifications in which the factory cooler is applicable. Whether you already have a supercharger or you are simply looking to add reliability with vastly improved oil cooling to your factory-spec M3, this oil cooler will help keep your oil temps in check in arduous conditions on the track or sitting in traffic.
