VF-Engineering: E9x Cooling Options

Currently it's 103 degrees at Willow Springs Raceway.
That's hot, like Africa hot. While the E9x
has a decent cooling system it only takes
a few spirited laps before temps rise beyond normal.
VFE's got some cooling upgrades that can help.
I followed Mike, our lead tech as he upgraded
this E92 M3 with race-spec cooling hardware.

From top to bottom:
1:M3 Dual-Pass Power Steering Cooler
2:M3 DCT Dual-Pass Transmission Cooler
3:M3 Triple-Pass Radiator
4: M3 Engine Oil Cooler

Stock steering cooler vs. M3 Dual-Pass Power Steering Cooler
The VFE E9X M3 Power Steering Cooler is the ultimate cooling solution for resolving
excessive power steering fluid temperatures seen in race and high performance driving
environments which often lead to fluid overflow, starvation, and in some cases
costly system failure. This race-spec engineered component utilizes advanced
AC condenser manufacturing technology to deliver a cooler that is
40% more efficient than the OEM unit. [VFA09-8041]

Stock transmission cooler vs. M3 DCT Dual-Pass Transmission Cooler
The VFE E9X M3 power transmission cooler for DCT and 6-speed
transmissions is the ultimate cooling solution to address high
transmission fluid temperatures often seen during track use.

This race-performance engineered component utilizes
efficient AC condenser manufacturing technology to deliver
a cooler that is 30% more efficient than the OEM unit. [VFA09-8042]

Stock radiator vs M3 Triple-Pass Radiator
The VFE E9X M3 Triple Pass Radiator is the ultimate cooling
solution for race and high performance cars,
including high cooling demands found in forced
induction and high power NA powerplants.
All-aluminum radiator features an industry
leading core design with B-Tube technology
along with an ultra-efficient 6.5mm
multi-louvered fin height design.
To further the cooling efficiency,
the integrated three-pass flow system that
guarantees the lowest possible outlet
temperatures of any upgraded cooling
system available for the platform today.
Wind tunnel testing showed heat rejection
results approximately 20% more efficient
than the OEM unit enough to keep
coolant temperatures fully stabilized
during the most demanding driving and
high ambient weather conditions.

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.

Hi do you have any Data for the Dual-Pass Transmission Cooler, it only 1 bar wider but you speak of AC condenser manufacturing technology, genuinely interested as i am suffering with heat problems after prolonged use on track...

many thanks
