M5/6 v10 supercharging.

Looking into picking up a used m6 and was wondering about supercharging options. I did some searching and came up with very little. I understand this is the wrong forum but no one on 5 post had any ideas surprisingly. I know alot of you are s charging your m3's and was hoping you could point me in the right direction. I'm at 5k feet so forced induction really makes a HUGE difference!

Cheers.

I'm sure there are other options out there.

Agreed with previous replies. I would start by contacting all of the supercharger companies that are working with the E9x M3 and see what they say.

I've been running G-Power's SK2 kit on my M6 for a year. Flawless performance, not a single issue with it.

I haven't removed the catalysts yet (required for SK2), but once I do, I'll post up my dynos. Cost is high, but PM me for details.

No, none. I drive the car very hard and haven't had any issues. The system features a liquid/air intercooler.

Looking forward to see a dyno, in the market for the same kit.

That kit has been on his m6 for at least 6 months and I still haven't seen a dyno.. or 60-130 times..

I doubt I'll be seeing any from that car either.. Maybe another M6

Don't worry Josh, there will be plenty dynos and 60-130 pulls coming. I've been busy driving the M3, which is why I haven't done anything with the M6, but that will change soon once I get the headers on.

The guys at PSI (precison-sport.com) here in Orlando have done a GPower car or 2. And they are getting ready to do another car that is from Kentucky or Tennessee.
Here is a link to one of them: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60...r-updates.html
