E92 Forced Induction Options...

Hello everyone!

I had a customer walk in today, dead serious on turbocharging his E92 M3... I'm dead in the water, as we normally deal with Active for our BMW parts, and they won't have a supercharger kit ready for a number of months.

We do quite a bit of custom fabrication, but the fabrication isn't the worrisome factor of this build; it's the fuel management. In this case, I'd rather get a kit.

To anyone's knowledge, is there a quality supercharger or turbocharger kit available for this car?

Active and G-Force are working on SC solutions and getting close, but there's nothing there today, so far as I know. I don't know anyone working on a turbo solution.

The preliminary pictures of the AA look very neat and promising.

Interesting... Well, we can make a custom system.

I wonder what's available for stand-alone engine management on the E92? I really hope the only answer is not MoTeC M800, that's not what I'd call a "best bang for the buck" option in this case.

Looks like a nice kit, although I'm not personally a fan of their orange intake plenum, but it makes the engine bay "pop"
