Artificial respiration. There's a term I've never heard for FI.

You need to download the product info pdf. It's in German, but it does describe the different level mods in more detail.

Same negative reactions when the M3 E46 was supercharged. I believe supercharging the V8 makes it more like a 5.0 Liter engine and it will still rev as high. You don't have to like it, but it's available for those who want it. This site helps people find what they need.

I really don't see the point in boosting a 12.0CR engine.....you really can't run enough boost with street gas to make it worthwhile.....

Did they change the pistons to reduce the CR to make it worthwhile?

Wow. I like the "artificial respiration" also.

Wonder what that bitch sounds like at 8400 rpm with that stage 3. Can anyone say WARRANTY?

G-power provide a 3 year warranty on engine and transmission. Pretty good I'd say.

If you read back, then yes on stage 3 with a higher boost level, they use low compression pistons.

WWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW

Stage 2 will be Perfect If I was to get it!
635bhp on the M3 will be Scary Fast!
Even 550bhp on the M3 will make our cars into a Rocket!

haha I guess we've found the kind of people that want such stuff...
might be easier to get a Z06, slap on an intake/exhaust and tell your friends you're driving a 550hp car
or get the stage 3 for the M3 and slap yourself
