The dyno graphs and on road performance clearly show this.
Good luck finding an air to air setup much cheaper than this.
Never said it wasn't. It's adding 5-8lbs of boost, of course it's going to be faster. This isn't really disputed.
All I'm saying is that my car is plenty fast without supercharging it. Puts a smile on my face any time I lay into it, and I've driven very high horsepower cars, 600+ rwhp.
I don't care about air to air, or air to water. As long as it's reliable, has reasonable IAT temperatures, and most of all is cost efficient
. The car already gets me in trouble, so I can't imagine having it with a blower. Would I s/c it if the price was right? Yup, wouldn't even think twice.
I'm more or less even with a stock E60 M5 and that's fast enough for me. Maybe I'll pick up a used kit in a year, as I plan on keeping this car forever and am in no rush
