E9X M3 with Supercharger



Anyone in the GTA with one?

I'm contemplating the idea of getting one, but would like to see/hear/ride to experience it before putting that kind of money down.

if you have the resources, do it 100%!! I had it on mine and it was a blast, totally transforms the car.

Just make sure you have a healthy motor, and do bearings if the KM's are high.

Remember that S65 is not a strong motor, its good to have extra money as a cushion, incase something catastrophic happens.

Never fast enough, that's why each new M car is faster than the last one!

Go supercharger!

Had a ride in one with an ESS 650 kit I believe.

It was incredibly quick, but too much power for me. I like the factory NA "modded" power better.

Also, I like my main bearings and prefer not having to deal with the inevitable motor swap that will follow down the road.

The S65 is a very strong motor. The problem lies with boosting an engine that has 12:1 compression already.

its all about the tune...
Most of these tunes run around 6.5 lbs boost max; I ran more than that on my E36 M3 for over ten years without any issues at all.

The real question is dollar value. Running a 625 or 650 kit will require the kit, exhaust. With race cats or cat less setup...

I've thought about it a lot, but by the time you spend 20,000, you're in M5/M6 territory that can get you 700hp without emissions issues...

If I could get a 550 kit without the intercooler, Second hand, at a good price, I would do it in a heartbeat!
