I am pleased to report some good progress on our E46 turbo kits. We have overcome several of the obstacles that face many of the tuners attempting to make an M3 run in a non-linear boosted mode, as well as solutions for the drive by wire and dual vanos control. We will have dyno numbers and driveability results by the Sema Show (November 3). I plan to host a BMW dyno event in late November for those that want to get a ride in our prototype "Stage One" M3 or strap their own cars down. I would like to get a few Supercharged E46 M3's to show up. I will post up the details in another month.
Here are some pics of JP and I and the M3 with the transplant. I will release more information over the next few weeks, but I'm keeping much of our progress and implementation secret as it will be a competitive advantage for many years to come.
We will be rolling out E46 turbo kits in the following order...
1) 2001-2006 M3 (non SMG and SMG) - final prototype completion (non SMG) 12/31/2006, release date (non SMG) 3/15/2007, SMG will be slightly following this date.
2) 2001-2005 330 i, xi, ci - 1st prototype completion 3/15/2007 for "i" model, release date for "i" model 6/15/2007, "xi" and "ci" will be staggered following these dates.
3) 2001-2005 325 i, xi, ci
4) 1999-2000 328 i, ci
5) 1999-2000 323 i, ci
6) 2000-2003 M5 (E39)
7) 2000-2002 Z8 (E52)
Have a great holiday everyone.
