Looking for 600hp
 
I was just wondering if there are any kits out there that will make around 600hp to the wheels on the M3. I'm currently deployed in the military and when I get back to the states I plan on upgrading to an M3. However, I would like to get around 600rwhp out of either a supercharger or a turbocharger. I would like to make the gain on pump gas 93 octane. I'm just not sure which kit if any (AA, ESS, VF, etc) would be capable of making that kind of power. I know HPF puts out some crazy vehicles, but they also come with a hefty price tag. I'd like to find something a little less expensive if possible. Any other turbo companies, or superchargers that will make that kind of power? Thanks.

NO. HPF stage 2.5
There is no cheap horsepower in a M.

even HPF stage 1 puts out ridiculous power for only 13.5k. Same as VF stage 2. :dunno:

You gotta pay to play...and HPF is the only way to go in my opinion. The customer service and support is 2nd to none. One thing you have to remember is that with increased output and performance there will become a linear (sometimes exponential) increase in price for the product you receive. In addition the costs related to the additional service costs (more oil changes, more sets of tires, brake pads, better rotors). Also remember the added responsibility of having the increase of power on the road and increased risk...you can get speeding tickets alot easier lol. And finally reliability...double the horsepower of anything and you are bound to have a problem sooner or later...and HPF takes very good care of their customers with experienced in house 24/7 phone support. Get your foot in the door on an HPF stage 1 while the deal is still going on...upgrade later. That's my opinion and if money is a little tighter HPF also offers financing with half down so that is an option as well. Nothing wrong either way ;)

As far as other companies products I have heard good things about AA but someone else will chime in I'm sure. No idea about ESS. VF has a bad reputation with the e46 M3 but again no experience on this...the forum has enough posts to make your eyes bleed on this matter. Dinan will break your bank and you won't feel good about it lol. Good luck in your future modding!

Reliability is the key issue:thumbup:
You will have to upgrade engine internals for any boost over 9psi. This is where your costs are going to go up:clap:
For a linear ,smooth power delivery, you should try the ESS VT stage 3 kits:woot:

HPF is going to be your fastest way to 600whp, although supercharging can get you up there, but most will offer power between 500-550whp. If you have any questions feel free to email me!

600rwhp and "less expensive" don't mix

MaverickM3 09-28-2010 11:09 AM

HpF is the way to go OP. :) You pay little more now but you get a whole lot more later in customer service/reliability and just straight up help even its something stupid. You can read for yourself that ALL the companies have some issues with their kits(and its Not Always the companies Fault) at some point or another. But look at how each company responded to the problem. I've been reading this forum for a While, and time after time I always HpF being up front about problems they have had and how they are going to fix the problem. And most of the time they do it for free OP. Thats why have chosen to go HpF. So sometimes trying to save money can be a bad thing LoL:thumbsup:.

There will always be a faster car out there. For the most part vettes are slow, there are how ever some retarded fast ones also.

OP, you and I will be very happy with 500RWHP, easier to track IMHO.

You have two options IMHO. If money is an issue, you should have no problems finding a used F/I kit from VF or AA. I haven't seen many ESS kits for sale though. You can get around 500 RWHP with either kit for around $6K-$7K used.

If you want 600 RWHP, your probably going to need to go with a HPF kit. Look around, sometimes, but not often, they also come up for sale.

This forum is so polite. The OP seems a little clueless, doesn't even have an m3 yet, the sig pic just says it all.

Bravo guys. (*sincere)

He has like $20k tied up into an M3 with a turbo kit and doesn't consider that a Z06 with 1/2 that money tied up into it will make 1.5x the power he has. Love that HPF high.

Again you have no clue....turbo vette kits cost as much as ours, 1.5x power...lol. Go back to m3 forums. You have nothing to add. You f/I knowledge is a joke. Bye bye now go see Nik
