I have replaced all the coolers on my track E92 M3 with do88 coolers. When I started tracking I quickly started overheating the DCT with the car still stock & on street tires. I went ahead and replaced all the coolers at that time figuring it would be needed anyways in the Texas heat. The DCT has performed flawless since even though I am pushing much faster & on much stickier tires now so the do88 cooler has definitely done the job there.

I cannot directly compare before & after on the rest of the coolers since I didn't have engine temp issues before replacing the coolers. I can say that I have been happy with the temps of the car as it has progressed to its current state. This platform can have issues with heat when pushed pretty hard but until now the temps have been in check. We've gotten to the point now where we have outrun the stock cooling setup even with the better drop in coolers. Going to have to start getting a little creative now to keep temps where we want them for extended runs.

F87 specific - I'm having the do88 engine oil cooler, radiator, remote radiator, and intercooler installed this week. Also went ahead and got their pressure pipe & turbo outlet hose. This will be in addition to a bootmod3 tune and fabspeed downpipe. I'm then going to go out to COTA Saturday and Sunday and flog the crap out of the car. Will give my impressions after this weekend.
Looking forward to seeing install pictures

Are you running stock, or tuned? If stock, do you find any noticeable lag from this IC? Do88 reckoned that there shouldn't be any lag introduced, due the flow characteristics, but I am a little concerned about the large volume increase (123%) compared to stock (e.g. more volume to pressurise, hence potentially more lag). Please can you share your experience?

Cheers.
The only modification that I have is Akrapovic exhaust system (stock downpipe and tune), the car response improved and I don't feel any lag with the car.

I also have a m performance steering wheel that shows oil and water temperature. before installing do88 the water temperature (street driving only) will range between 100c to 110+, with the FMIC/CP/TP it ranges between 80c to 90c.

That's great news - I'll be ordering one shortly! :-)

Thanks.
