AA Supercharger update?

Not much if any info has been released from Active regarding their kit. I love the E46 as much as anyone, but what about the E9x? I saw some vids a couple days ago and they were very very vague.

I saw their supercharged sedan while I was at AA. I am assuming they are still putting miles on it making sure everything is good before releasing the kit. Hopefully Omar will respond.

I know this is an old thread, but anyone heard anything? I haven't seen much since one of the magazines featured their e90.

I think the Roundel issue that had the AA SC'ed M3 came out like a year ago. AA has been taking a loooong time to release this SC...too long if you ask me given the car has been out 2 yrs already state side. Why so long?

I don't think the S/C kit is very easy to produce or even to get it running right.

I mean like a company G-Power they have all the inside info on the BMWs and they still make mistakes.

VF or AA I don't know if they will come out with one... but again that is just my guess.

I am happy so far with my car performance

E55 was pretty quick. I've owned tons of AMG cars and my dad still almost exclusively drives them and although they're quick stock I felt the SC M3 was faster.
That one must be running some serious numbers.
Can't imagine how fast an 800HP GTR is. I haven't even kept up with GTR tuning options since I don't care much for the car

Well true, I wonder how much GTR turbos can handle. The car comes form the factory with a built motorBut modding that car you're totally on your own

the guys with the 800HP has changed his IHI turbos for TD06 with mod turbines. Cause there is not much space to put larger ones. (I think that is the trend for a lot of cars that are soon to come.)

Hello Guys. I’ve seen the AA kit and can confirm that it will be well worth the wait. If history is worth anything, AA was not the first to market the E46 M3 supercharger kit, but they are the only BMW tuner to kick but at Car and Driver One Lap of America. It is important to remember that first to market may not always me the best tested product for the consumer. I respect AA point of taking time to deliver a quality product. We are not talking a about a Honda or Nissan kit. When you spend 60K for your car you want to know it will work under all condition and every time you turn the key, and that's exactly what AA is doing. Patience is a virtue. The supercharger that AA is using is light years ahead any blower in the market. HKS is great partner.

We should have our VF-equipped project back from tuning/datalogging shortly, machining of the new manifold is just about completed. Keep posted to our journal for updates.
