With the added stroke and the additional mass of the larger pistons, the forces involved in revving 9000 would be more than I want to put on my engine.
Hehe, yeah, I definitely know what you mean. I was kind of being a bit humorous more so than realistic

Interesting, I must have missed PG's testing on the TBs. I wonder if that was a byproduct of the mechanical aspect of the TB or a tune not being able to take advantage of the bigger flow coming in....

I agree with you 100% though. The last thing any of us needs is a blown S65B40....or S65B46

You can find a used ESS 535 kit for 5-6k and install yourself in less than 8 hours and gain 100whp. I might add ESS has had zero failures on all their kits! Need we discuss this any further....
Yeah, I know what you mean! I happen to be a huge NA nut...I just have fun extracting power in the most financially inefficient ways LOL. There is a small niche of us who like the purity and philosophy of pulling out power without boost and nitrous.

With my E46 M3, I spent enough in NA mods to easily buy a solid intercooled supercharger kit but really, thats just not something I was looking for. The thrill I get from hearing my high strung S54B32 is pure driving bliss. I guess once again, different strokes for different folks with different goals.

With that said, I want another E46 M3 so I can boost it for BIG power...
