Anyone running AA SC setup?

Looking into supercharging soon and have seen tons of discussion over Gintani, VF, and ESS but not much about the AA kit. Is anyone running this kit? If so, what stage and how do you like it? Thoughts? Opinions?

We have around 200+ installed kits right now most being on the east coast. However we have installed around 5-6 gen 2 kits in the California area in the last 2 months.

Hopefully some can chime in and give you some reviews.

The kit is amazing had gen 1 lvl 2 for about 2 years now upgraded to gen 2 lvl 3 and made 591whp. The new rotrex blower is perfect for the m3 motor

I'm running the AA kit, have had it about 7k miles. Stage 2 Gen 2. No issues, great kit, great power down low, and up top. Very quiet blower, smooth throughout the rev range, great looking under the hood. Making every bit of the advertised power.

This seems to be the consensus. The more research I do on it, the better and better it looks. Not the most advertised supercharger, but every industry person I've contacted about it raves on how perfect it is for those looking for power in all rpm ranges.

Hitting spot on at 538.8whp right at 8psi. Advertised at 540whp, and that was a 99 degree day in the shop. No boost log on that run, but the P3 gauge is showing it peaking right above 8psi at redline. This is stage 2 no meth.[ATTACH]933721

I certainly would NOT run AEM's meth kit that comes with the AA kit.

Great numbers! Especially considering that it's on a dyno dynamics. Active is my favorite kit to date by a fair margin. Enjoy it!
