Arrow VF Engineering Supercharged Wide Body E92 M3 review by The Smoking Tire

The Smoking Tire heads out to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, where VF Engineering provided an entire fleet of supercharged sports cars, including a 620hp supercharged widebody M3. See what Matt Farah is able to do with 30% more power out on the track.



Congratulations VF-Engineering!

Thanks for watching

That VFE M3 is sick. I just can't decide whether it's sick as in cool. Or sick as in I'm gonna throw up. I will say this: it is one very unique M3.


Cheers.

I cannot say I like the paint job. Way too 'look at me'!

But the engine enhancements are incredible!! I wonder what the price is just for the blower, new intake, and exhaust (i.e. no body kit, no breaks).

I wish he didn't talk so much and they pushed the cars harder.

You'll be needing a damn good set of brakes for the engine enhancements man. With all that power on tap, it will be like trying to stop a rampaging bull elephant from stomping on a circus midget. Not a pretty picture.

VFE uses GIAC tunes. Not a good choice for BMW.

Thanks for posting the video! I did not know VF made a kit for the 911 Carrera. That would probably surpise a few 911 Turbos!

Which is exactly why VF probably put that paint job on it. So you will look at it!

Why is GIAC not a good choice for BMW?

"This car is f**king fast! I could start and end the review with that one statement."

Kind of says it all, doesn't it?


Cheers.

Hopefully in the future we could get up another video of the car on the track and have some fun with it

the widebody kit looks amazing but just the matte paint makes the car look so cheap and ugly... great specs on the supercharger but I would like the car to be painted Alpine White with all the OEM chrome trims slapped back on it.
it's one thing to be fast, but one thing to be fast and classy.

A turbocharged six in-line is good, a supercharged V-8 is better.
