▀▄ eas - Rogue Engineering Power Pulleys for e9X M3 - IN STOCK!

We're proud to announce that Rogue Engineering's M3 Power Pulleys have started shipping for e9X Coupe, Sedan & Convertible.

Heart of a BMW
As most know, the heart of every BMW is its engine. When you blip the throttle to ask for power, the engine responds with the power that BMW designed into it. Well, almost all of the power.

The engine is also asked to drive specific accessories in the vehicle such as the A/C compressor, alternator, power steering pump and water pump. All of these crank pulley driven accessories inherently affect the engine's efficiency.

Underdriving the Overachievers
Rogue Engineering has developed a power pulley kit that reduces the drag on specific pulleys while allowing others to remain at their same efficiency. This allows for perfect operation in daily driven vehicles without a hiccup or stutter. However, when the demand of power is requested, the power pulley kit allows for the freed power to become apparent.

Rogue Engineering Power Pullies are machined from 6061-T6 heat treated aluminum and specially coated with a MIL-A-8625 Type III hardcoat anodize finish. This kind of anodizing is not to be confused with a Type II cosmetic anodize finish (typical colors such as red, black, blue, silver, green, etc.). The hardcoat anodize finish actually builds a small surface layer on top of the aluminum, preventing wear.

Until now, MIL-A-8625 Type III hardcoat anodize was not available in a deep, rich, black color. By working with their anodizing vendors, RE has been able to implement a hardcoat anodize finish that we are proud to phase into our product line. This unique gloss, jet black anodize finish is unlike the "dark greyish-brown" of other dark hardcoat finishes. This unique finish is now standard on all Rogue Engineering pulleys.

Its all in the R&D
Rogue Engineering is proud of its motorsport association with its racing team partner ships which allow us to offer products used in professional racing. This association allows us to offer the BMW enthusiast the same parts being used in motorsport endurance racing. For example, our E46 M3 RACE pulley kit is a direct result of our involvement with Automatic Racing since 2005. Similar associations with Bimmerworld Racing continue to allow Rogue Engineering to develop parts that work in racing environments, not just bullet points on an internet based website.

Expect an approx 8hp gain on top end after installation. As always, local e9X m3 owners are welcomed to stop by our facility to see or pickup in person.
