3: lastly...the only thing that bothers me is no software availability...doesnt the car have to be optimized for sure a bolt on upgrade?

AA has software...does these have that option to really dial in the correct tuning?
1) No, different intake pipe.

2) I cannot say, this is up to the individual. The aftercooler will be upgradeable from the standard SK+, so it is not necessary to wait.

3) BMW software is very good for adapting to modifications. We have been running standard software on our cars for a very long time, with great performance and reliability. The SK+ runs less boost, so the stock ECU is fine with this. But you might want to contact www.technikpower.com for their supercharger ECU, this should work to improve performance.
