13 Frozen White - Supercharged

Crossed over to the dark side this past winter by having a VF620 kit installed on my M3. The car now pulls like a monster and so far everything is running great.

Had the install done by Rogue Engineering in NJ and went with the new BPM supercharger tune. The install and tune have been great, outstanding job from both Vendors. I will give a more formal review once I get some more miles on the car.

Here are a few pics and a video of a 40-120 pull (not the best video but you get the idea).

nice choice. How did you make your decision to go with the BPM tune over the VF tune?
Great car!

Very nice! Glad you're enjoying the car Mark - Frozen White is an amazing color.

For those interested, here are charts of his friends car that we did with the same blower setup. Dynos were done on different days. First picture was with test pipes and tune, second and third one was with blower. Dyno says 2011 on one chart and 2012 on the other, typo the dyno operator made. Pretty serious gain, and this is on a heartbreaker dyno! That's one fast convertible

"How did you make your decision to go with the BPM tune over the VF tune?"

Without getting into to much detail, I had both tunes so I can make a good comparison. PM me if you bought a used kit and are evaluating tunes.

BPM shifts smoother, does not throw codes (except an o2 sensor once in a while because I have test pipes), better idle and I get to keep all the other BPM enhancements like steering & cold rpm limitor. I also have the BPM DCT tune so I like that everything is bundled together from the same company.

My thoughts are that the hardware of the different kits are pretty much the same so everything comes down to who is installing it and what tune to go with.

I have to give Rogue Engeering credit on a great install. They took their time, made sure everything was installed perfectly and answered all my questions before giving me back the car.

This is really interesting. Could be the best of both worlds? VF hardware with ESS tune-like reliability.

Not sure what that is supposed to mean:

VF has the best hardware and ESS has the best tunes?

+1 stupid comment. VF is a solid company making kits for a long time.

Car looks good OP!
