Talking Shady1 finally has a Supercharger, mod virus is cured... for now

Since I am about to retire from the military after doing 23 years of service and 7 combat tours ranging from Desert Shield/ Desert Storm era and every deployment in between until the present . Everyone knows me for all the carbon fiber mods I have installed on my M3 and under the hood. I was one of the first in the USA having a full Hamann body kit installed on my M3 .My M3 is in all types of car magazines, youtube, and other car forums on the internet. My M3 always had all the bolt on mods, tune, and everything. I do not track my M3 because I always drive any place or travel any distance in my M3 doing car shows, meets, events and to even have mods installed in other states. The mod virus took over so bad I could no longer go in the Sponsors and Classified section on the M3 post and find anything to buy because I most likely already have that type of mod on my M3 . The only thing I was really missing on my M3 was a Supercharger . I finally pulled the trigger on a Supercharger with a little help and encouragement from M3post member Laidback (MFest Founder Chris) It all started when I sent him a text showing him how I placed first at a car show and made it in a car magazine. Oh and not to mention I am the MFest Rep for Texas . Laidback sent me a text and it said we need to get you Supercharged. I text him back yeah we need to get me Supercharged. Laidback text me back ..... Give Me a Week . I was like wow Really Once a week came around he gave me a number to call a guy named Toby that works at VF Engineering we talked on the phone I told him about all the cars shows, meets, events, and sponsors I have. The next thing you know I am being sponsored by VF Engineering thanks to Laidback giving me his VF Engineering sponsorship Since MFest 7 in Las Vegas is coming up 24-26 May and VF Engineering is one of the main sponsor they had a Special VF Limited Edition Supercharger numbers #01 - 20 to debut at this years MFest 7. It don't matter which version Supercharger you get for 01 - 20. I got to choose which number of the limited edition I wanted and I picked #01 . Now all I have to do is get the Supercharger installed. Now keep in mind I live in Central Texas and VF Engineering is in SoCal 1,423 miles away from my house one way, Now what would Shady1 do in a situation like this .......!!!! . Get a transport and have the car sent to VF for install No way guy..... Shady1 is going to take 6 days off from work and drive to VF in SoCal for install . Since my M3 is pretty well known at many events. I told VF Engineering, I wanted pics of the build and events leading up to my Supercharger being installed so I can post it and share my experience with everyone. I also made sure I picked the week with the weekend of the Pre- MFest 7 event at the Oakley Factory so my car could be on display at the event and debut the Special MFest Limited Edition kit. It took a lot of planning for this trip and to make the install happen and since my Supercharger was a Special MFest Limited Edition I wanted everything custom done and custom painted. Now on with the 6 day round trip that started late Wednesday night at 12:00 a.m. midnight because in the military you can start your vacation this early in the morning the day of your vacation. I had 1,423 miles to drive one way 21 hours from Central Texas to SoCal. I had to drive really careful driving at night because there is a lot of deer here in Texas on the back roads and off the highway glad I have deer whistles mounted on my M3. Now on with the pics


The VF kit I have is the VF540 MFest Limited Edition number #01 out of 20


VF finished the install on my M3 Friday evening . My M3 was a priority build for VF Engineering and The Shop with the custom paint job to the manifold. My Trip is not over yet this part was just the build, I still have the big Pre- MFest 7 event at the Oakley Factory, since I am sponsored by VF and my M3 is the first completed special limited edition my M3 it will be on display and debut at the MFest event. Stay tuned more pics coming up next and the rest of the trip.

Thumbs up The rest of my 6 day trip Supercharger trip

Since the install was completed late Friday evening there was no shops or anything open to do a dyno run . When I picked up my car Toby from VF Engineering called me and told me, I needed to meet up at a certain parking lot spot early Saturday morning because all the VF cars are going to do a caravan and shoot a video going to the Pre-MFest 7 event at the Oakley Factory. The VF caravan there was awesome I had a fun time driving my newly found power here are some pics from the meet. There was a really big turn out. I took tons of pics I think I lost one of my SD cards with most of the pics

I have 92000+ miles on my M3 I have two more trips planned one is MFest 7 in May I am leading the Texas Chapter Caravan to Las Vegas. The Second trip will be to Florida this summer. I plan to take my M3 to PRS Tuning (Performance Race Solutions) in Sanford, FL and have them replace my rod bearings, install a Spec Super Twin Clutch kit, and any other Major stuff that needs to be done to my engine to ensure it last for awhile so I can enjoy it during my retirement. I think I have the mod virus back under control well at least for now ..... Thanks for reading my thread and I hope you all enjoyed the pics

Wow! You added a blower at 92k! I would have had those bearings replaced or at least checked during install. Curios why you didn't?

I already have plans to get this stuff done like I said in this thread. Why I did not do it prior is because I did not have enough reaction time because like I said in the thread I was givin the supercharger offer within a weeks time. I had no plans to get a supercharger this soon I know all the risk. I do not just trust anybody or any shop in my state to mess with the engine of my car. Most of the shops and venders I would trust to tear my engine down or look at the rod bearings are on the West Coast in SoCal or on the East Coast. Most shops in my city have no clue on how to tear the engine down or check anything but they will charge you a arm and a leg to do. For example there is a shop in my state that I thought I could trust to do this Supercharger install on my M3 because they done SC kits on M3's. This place wanted to charge me $1800.00 to have this kit done makes you wonder why I go out of my state to have major stuff done Oh and prior to the install VF performed a leak down test on my engine because of my high miles and warned me of the risk if they install the SC, I gave them the green light.

Nice can't wait to see that monster. Now all that needs to be done is put a certain LEXUS in his proper place by blowing not only his doors but his whole dang car away. so he can finally keep that trap shut lol
