If i recall correct MTM has a Price Tag of around 15.000 Euro .The thing is though that MTM is a German Tuning Company .It is my believe that if an American Tuning Company makes a New Kit for the M3 the cost should be much cheaper because of the Current Currency Difference between Euro and US Dollar and high Competition in the specific field of the US Marketplace.

The Major Concern of those Tuning Companies should be to adjust their Tuning/Supercharger kits in Each Cars Specifications (Euro Spec ,US Spec ,Africa Spec etc.)The Correct Marketing policy should be
"think Global ,act Local"....well this is my approach on the matter ,i might be mistaken....

Maybe in the low gears, and not in the higher gears ?

I know Mosselman Turbosystems is already working on a SC system for the E92 M3. Should be ready by June to September of this year and expect to increase hp to about 500+!!! Should cost about $15 to $20 US! They have gone with and SC primarily because if its "lower boost" levels compared to turbos and easier to cool and manage with the high compression ratio. They will later develop a turbo system, that will require low compression cylinders and other smaller internals details..., that should make beyond 600 hp!!! Anything can be done to these engines as long as space and $$$ constraints are taken into account. In fact, with higher octane rated race fuel, turbos can be used with high compression engines such as ours without the danger of premature detonation. Problem is, where would you typically refuel and, as always, cost!! lol!!!

By the way, sure traction is an issue, but it is less an less of a problem as you reach higher speeds and with the use of wider tires, say 295 or 305 in the rear. The added power makes a huge difference at speeds above, say, 100 kilometers per hour, in passing circumstances, coming out of corners, higher altitudes, etc… In essence, in all sorts of everyday high way driving but for the most part, not City driving. I personally much prefer more power on a chassis like this!!!! Its great!!!
