BMW E46 325xi auto tranny car can handle without noticable side-effects. As for my knowledge, it seems to be between 235hp and 280hp.

To get over 280hp, do I have to upgrade my auto tranny? I thought I`d already had a stong autotranny.

How is BMW autotranny like comparing to corvette or other faster sports car`s autotranny?

In summary, let me ask 1) E46 325 engine`s capacity(maximum horsepower and pressure), and
2) autotranny`s capicity.(maximum horsepower and torque)

they told me they have never installed it in a sulev modeled car. but they have installed it for regular 325's. your tranny is going to stay the same this supercharger is not boosting as much as sk1. find out what type of engine you have first the m54 is fine but people like me who have the m56 sulev model are left high and dry. they sent me an email saying you can try it and if it doesn't work sell it off. =( in the future they are developing an ITC for this kit
