Intercoolers 535i

Hey guys, I've need some answers about Intercoolers for the F10 535i. I've asked around but it seems that the answers are inconsistent.

1. Is this doable? I think I have never seen one before.
2. if so, what's the benefit? any gains on hp/tq? or just more constant boost?
3. Is it worth it? I live in CA, and some said to me with the CA heat, it's worth it.
4. Any recommendations on a good shop that can install one?

There isn't any out for our cars right now. But the N55 cooling system is great. It is nothing like the N54 where an FMIC is a very necessary mod for power.

What if it's custom made? would you recommend it?

Sure. Extra cooling can be helpful
