If your looking strictly for power you should have gotten a different car. It's all about how this model M3 uses the power. Adding a blower to this car puts it in another league and for 8 grand that's rare. You can add a supercharger to a mustang and get a lot more power but it won't ever have the balance and feel of the M let alone a supercharged one.

I thought a single turbo setup on these could be worth 700 wheel horsies, similar to what Vishnu has done with the 335's. I would def pay the 8k for that. A little too optimistic, I'm guessing, lol.

Turbos are a lot better because of there efficiency, but like stated there isn't much room in there for 2 turbos.

Eh, certain types of superchargers have approached the thermodynamic efficiency of turbos. But yeah, they are used in any current S65 supercharger kits.

Gintani is almost done developing a twin turbo kit. Should make some serious power when done. Imagine having an 8600rpm with twins OMG

Yeah I'm aware but the price point will likely ruin it for many of us.
