The E46 M3 has a VF-Engineering Supercharger kit makes 430rwhp at 7.3psi.
The VF kit is $10,000 though plus $1000.00 for stage 2 upgrade, plus $2000+ for the exhaust setup.

Hope this isn't a repost.
That's like clubbing baby seals. . .

Hehe yea. Drews car is extremely fast on the freeway. We were about dead even depending on who jumped out first. My m5 has charcoal filters removed and 2 mufflers with 2ndary cats removed. I'll run Drew again once I put a new mod on the car.

What did you guys expect?

I know there is a lot of the 335vs. the world crap on here and it's for some people to believe there are faster cars but, 100hp less is a big difference not to mention where the horsepower is made, gearing and, weight differences.

This makes the VF car look slow. Unless there is more going here than disclosed.

Well it's a convertible, that's +400lbs of weight to carry. and the HPF kit is pushing like 800hp so what'd you expect?

Actually Sherwin's 335I has ran very close to some SC'd M3's, with a tune, DP's, race file, he will do very well.

He's not making 800HP, he was making 550WHP in that vid, still quite a bit more than the vert, the vert started in the wrong gear and had a MAF issue, regardless we know the outcome of that as well. On pump fuel a HPF's car should be close to mine, but that particular HPF M3 in that vid does not have the option of running pump fuel, only 97 and 109 octane.

Taza's car will DESTROY any HPF turbo'd M3 with stock internals.
