So, i have seen many pictures installed intercooler, but never see their parameters. What the best sizes we recommend for my e46 330ci? What does AA intercooler size use? And one more question, what the hightes PSI i can use with stock engine and it will be a life ?

Now the pressure in the intake manifold is 9,4PSI at 7000RPM and pretty often hotter than 60C.

my result now is 267 WHP (manual gearbox).

Thank you all!
Hello Diabolus ,

With the Stage 1 Supercharger Kit for the 330 you will get higher intake air temps than the Stage 2 Supercharger Kit since the Stage 1 is Non-Intercooled. Remember elevation also plays a role in Horsepower as well. If you could please E-Mail me the result of the Dyno and provide me with which Dyno your vehicle was tested on I will be more than glad to have Zak our Software Engineering to take a look at it and suggest any areas we can improve to increase Horsepower. Always a pleasure to hear from you my friend.

Best Regards,
