We are going to install it when we have some free time in the shop. But I'm sure we will make time fast! We have the need.... the need for speed!
Photos and dynos to come.

Schnell come get your X5 are we tuning that baby hauler for you

I can't wait to see how the car will be with the new wheels Saturday and rear diff brace on Monday! I have a 80 mile highway commute 7 days a week starting March 1 and this is going to be perfect for it .

When are you getting your install done?

The Killer Bee is going to be doing some serious tire killing once you finish of the Install on the Level 3 System.

As for Schnell once you get a ride in the Killer Bee well....

Thank you so much for the feedback. It is nice to see that the road of SC on the S65 has evolved to a new species. I am REALLY looking forward to this upgrade. In a sense it is beyond a upgrade and Active has given the public a slew of choices for the S65 depending on the needs. I think they have all the bases covered now. Hopefully real world events will show this. I am a Active Autowerke dealer/flash center. Myself and my young eager Tech will be on this ASAP! I have another client/friend travelling here in May to do the same You know who you are
Thanks again NikB316

BIG thank you to Andrew, Rob, Craig, etc. at Active. Their customer service and tech support has been absolutely fantastic thus far. They have exceeded my expectations and have helped me out in matters where most tuners would have been trying to get my $ first Andrew & Rob spent a great deal of time answering every one of my questions and concerns without getting fed up with me . Learned a lot about the kit as well as other related information without ever feeling like I had to buy anything. I think their years of experience really say A LOT.

Now the only thing left to review is this beast of the kit! I will be posting my reviews and experiences throughout the transformation of my car. I hope to be an asset to the community and help educate anyone in the market for a blower. The more information we consumers have, the better the products will be from the tuners!

Now if only Volk wouldn't take 2-3 months to get my 18" Bronze TE37s
LEVEL 3 #002 CONGRATS NIK !
+1 to this!! Can't wait to get my kit installed!

Had another day at the MaximumPSI dyno with the new O2 sensor running well and non-crushed air filter. The car was pulling strong to the end where we made 526.8whp and 335wtq! About 8whp 5wtq more than last week's run. The couple runs before were right at 520 and the run right after this was at 525ish. As the car was making more power I would have liked to see another run or two but we ran out of time. I am very happy with these results. Just recently another car there made 505whp on their dyno and then put down 550whp on a dynojet. I am hoping to get on a dynojet within the next week and will post up the results to see the difference.

Am having a lot of fun with the car and it is currently getting a rear diff brace on.

Just got back from the DynoJet. 581.8whp SAE, 598.61whp STD& 602.16whp uncorrected. All with 0 smoothing

I'm tired and just used the DynoJet software for the first time so here are just a couple "preview" graphs. I'll post the ones with torque and all tomorrow when I figure out how to!

Sweet graphs! You just need to go into the graph display settings and pick the axis.
