We're hoping to see it before the end of Dec, it's finalizing QC as we speak.

In respect to RE, nothing I can show just yet.

As soon as we're given the OK, we'll make the announcement on the shifters - I'm already in line to get one for my own M3 when released.

I thought I'd send out a little write up of my newest go-fast part, for anybody who might be wondering. I haven't seen anyone on here with the Rogue pulley, so maybe this helps. Heads up though, It won't be like anything from Pencil Geek

I decided on the Rogue pulley for a few reasons.
1) I Had Rogue goodies on my E36 M3 (bomb proof!)
2) They're right up the road from me.
3) It seemed to have the least aggressive diameter change vs the other pulleys out there, which I hoped might have the least effect on how the other belt driven thingys run.

I got it right at the Rouge Shop. Ben was great and answered all my questions. As a bonus I got a peek at other parts coming soon, (Shifter looks super!)

After the install I noticed a change right away. Not a tire-smokin' kind of change, but enough of a change to feel like I didn't blow my money. It changes the engine's attitude. Helga (my car) now feels really angry. It revs much easier than before, and the throttle is much more responsive. All temps and electronics are running better than ever. Rogue claims 8hp at the wheels. I can't really feel that, but I've seen the dyno chart, so I believe them.

The pulley itself is the same color as stock, and totally hidden in the engine. It even uses the factory bolts. Even if they had the engine out of the car, a dealer probably wouldn't know it was there.

Money well spent say I!!! Next up, a loud nasty exhaust to scare the yuppies.

A few pulley pics
Hi Jersey Girl...it was nice to meet you the other day. It was nice to see Helga (in all of her 18" wheel hotness!)

All the shifter gossip...it will be answered soon enough. We just wanted to make sure that it's ready to roll before we release it.

EAS will have more info when we are ready to go.

For the E46, the Rogue Octane kit was good, but the Auto Solutions kit was hands down the best. I can't remember whether I heard it from the Evosport guys or somewhere else, but allegedly Auto Solutions is coming up with something for the E9X M3.

Having tons of Rogue parts on three different BMWs over 6 years, I can attest to this as well.

I will hopefully be of the first to have their shifter, exhaust etc as I live right down the street and Ben and Mark are good friends of mine. I will make sure to post reviews as Ben allows me to do so with his parts.

Lucky guy - I can't wait to get one of the shifters on my M3 when completed.

All others - we have all Rogue Engineering products in stock, feel free to stop by to take a look, there's nothing like seeing the parts in person before buying.

Pulleys are compatible with newer builds as only the tensioner assembly is a bit different than previous models.

Do we have any clue when the shifter will come out? Im in NYC literally 27 minutes from them and would like to pick up the shifter and pulleys together so that I can install at the same time.

No concrete date yet, but we're hoping before the end of Dec.

We charge the same, it's about a 1.5hr job (once engine has cooled).

Other things to look at while the hood's up are the aFe filter and DAS scoops, you can take a look at these on the shelf and our own M3.

Give me a call if you would like to book an appointment.

Going to one of these shops would be like going to a candy store. And that's just dangerous!!!

We installed them on a DCT M3 Coupe produced on 05/08 which the pulley did not work.

Are you referring to the AA or Rogue pulley?
