Awesome numbers! I had virtually the exact same results (520rwhp/342rwtq) when I dynoed my 575 kit before I upgraded to VT2-600.

Just curious what the 600 kit was able to give you on the dyno?

damn thats a lot of power!!! can someone explain to me where the loss of power comes from since it doesnt meet the "name" level of the supercharger? such as why doesnt the 535 actually make close to that? in this case there is a catless exhaust also helping out with some power

Great numbers. I ve been dying to see what my brothers E46 M3 with the AA stage 1.5 and Catless will run. Was this done at specialty Z ?. If so they are like a block away from him.

Great info and awesome numbers

the names of the kits are based on CRANK HP, not WHP. so for a VT2-600, it's making around 600 crank HP. my car is a bit of an anomaly... yes, i do have an upgraded .5psi pulley but my car is making what some VT2-600 kits are making. it's weird.

This is awesome.......i want a vt 535 kit so bad for my e90

I am trying to wait until the new m3 comes out to decide whether I want to just keep and SC this one or get the new one..........MUST..........RESIST................. .ESS SC KIT

What makes it even worse is i had an ess kit on my prior e46 m3 and loved it.

One question for you though, how much earlier do you notice the tq coming in and is there a large noticeable difference in torque (from before you got the SC)?

Very strong numbers for 5 psi. VT1-535 is a great value

Hey. I haven't re-dynoed after I upgraded to VT2-600. It was just a simple pulley/belt swap. I could assume around 20 rwhp gain.

Nobody asks what's your "peak boost" either.

Your engine made peak hp @ 7800 RPMs. But your engine and boost kept increasing another 300-400 RPMs until your (lowered) redline. So in your case, peak boost does not equal peak hp, and it wouldn't be fair to penalize you an extra 0.5 - 1.0 PSI because your HP peaked a few hundred RPMs before your redline or dyno charts.

This article will explain the whole thing for you:
