I test drove this the other night, unfortunatly it was raining... but..... you can definately tell that this thing will go like hell.... I was running out of rpms so quick... the throttle response was phenominal..
I will test this in the dry asap. Oh and the the Evolve full exhaust sounds amazing!!
Also the kit itself is very appealing to the eye.
This will definately be the kit to challenge all.

Great to hear some feedback!

When you get more time behind the wheel, you have to tell us how it compares to your GPower SKII!!

Yes defo, we might even have a couple of drag runs to compare.... although I have a vert and they have a coupe.... we should still get an idea.

sorry for off topic but got a general question regarding these superchargers. what actually happen to/with the intake on the hood after the sc is installed? Is this one going to be plugged or water is just going to pour into the engine compartment when it rains?

You know what...that is actually a brilliant question and I never even thought once to question that.

Curious on the reply....

Nice pricing for a top engineered supercharger kit that makes no compromise!

I hope some M3Post members take advantage of it so we can see some reviews.

In the mean time, I'll have to live vicariously through videos and photos....

Which kit is this referencing? The 625 or the 530? In looking @ the site, it says, "Calibrations for 91(US)/95(EUR) + Octane Fuel". In Texas, we have 93 octane (AKI) which equivocates to about 97 RON. What would be required to get the tune to account for the higher RON rating?

I'm assuming this is for the 625 kit, but correct me if I'm wrong. It looks like both kits are intercooled? This is a big plus for me. I would not want to run a non intercooled kit on my car. Intake temps way too high without one.

In terms of the higher octane, the kit comes with the cable (which is a very nice touch as many of them sell the cable separately), so Sal would be able to modify the file to suit whatever octane you plan on running (if necessary - depends on ignition settings).

Thanks for the comments!

Customers have driven the kit already on our car. Reviews will be coming.

A hard pipe would fracture and transmit noise into the chassis.
You are connecting the blower which moves with the engine to the front panel.

Makes sense since the brackets are on the core support.

The price remains the same on the kit no matter which HP level or boost level you want.
The hardware is the same.
Just a different supercharger pulley, belt and software are supplied.
All of the R&D was done at the same time so we cannot justify charging more money for parts that cost exactly the same that are different in size.

Boost levels will be 5-5.5, 6.5-7 and 7.5-8 psi

Boost and HP will naturally fluctuate with ambient temperature.

For different octane fuels the only thing that usually and logically needs changing in the software is the target ignition. We will post more information on this and the software.
