Per your comments of "modded properly" and "engine fairly stock" for tracking, would you say it's not a good idea or not "optimal" to track a M3 w/ a supercharger in general?
Very good question. I've had a lot of success in maintaining oil temps below 210 even when doing 15-16 lap sessions, but others haven't with the exact same kit. It's not optimal because the heat exchanger (for the air to water intercooler) blocks the stock radiator/oil coolers.
With the linear power delivery of the ESS kit, the car still behaves like an N/A motor and doesn't upset the car when accelerating hard out of corners (like a turbo car could).
On a high speed track, I think it's fantastic...but on a slow speed tight track, well...that's why I have an STi.
