AA's Supercharger photo in Bimmer magazine

Was reading today article about AA in Bimmer magazine and saw this

I believe they are going for 630-660HP

468hp and 415tq, now that is what I am talking about. I am totally ok with the stock 415hp, but not the 295 TQ

I wonder what it will run price wise. I hope they make it affordable, at least for the stage 1.

And then let the domino effect kick in. Blown trannies, blown diffs, overheating issues, etc, etc. Been there, done that, won't make that mistake again.

Are you kidding? Have you seen the prices for their E46 M3 SC kits? Have you noticed that almost all E9X M3 aftermarket parts are priced absolutely out of this world? Really, don't keep your fingers crossed on this one...

This car is a monster! I was amazed when I was taken for a test drive. If you live in or near Miami you have to go by and visit and ask for a ride. You'll know what I mean

Those are prototype pictures that were done in house. The final manifold/ hardware will have a factory type finish.

I hope companies that are doing F/I for the e92 can put together a kit that will compete with HPF's e46 M3 kits.

They might compete with stage 1 or 2 with no meth, but it won't have that instant on Trq the turbos do

But the SC's should be putting the power to the ground a little better and hopefully they will be controllable at the track

I'm really hoping the pricing isn't stupid

Have you seen the price of the Dinan stroker kit.

The supercharger will be minor in comparison

You can get a G-power stage 1 SC kit for around 11k...... considering they are outside the US the G-power kits should be more expensive and i would think that AA, ESS, VF, etc. would price their kits at least similar.

It's just sad how our SC kits are like 3 times as much (or more) than kits for other cars.

Yeah, it is not posted yet but expect it in the next month or so. It'll be in the same realm for pricing as the V10 so big $$$

It does come backed by Dinan etc but it is still alot.

Hmm.... that's gonna be 40K then, but the gains should be nice. They squeezed out another 100 plus HP/TQ from the S85.
