Question Supercharger fitment question

Waiting on a reply from A/A but thought I'd ask the forum..

Looking to buy a fellow members S/C. His 330i is an 01. Mine is an 03 zhp. Will the supercharger and associated parts work with my car?

thanks

the parts will probably fit but you have a different DME than him. the software will not work. im sure ASA will let you know if they have compatible software (i thought zhp came out in 04?) but then youd have to find your own software anyways

Thanks..I hope active answers the question soon otherwise I'm thinking of the ESS twincharger.

BTW..the zhp came out in late 03. Coupes in 04. I thought the same thing until I bought this last month.

The parts should fit just fine, but ZHP is MS45 and the '01 was MS43. As far as I have seen, AA never came out with ZHP Rotrex SC software. Wait to get a response from them before you continue.

The AA Twin Screw system would work AA has only tuned the MS45 ECU for the TS blower instead of the centri blower due to the amount of power that is gained.

We can take pre-orders on the TS kit, as they are currently undergoing replication for mass production. Should be ready within 2 months or so for the retail market.

The options as far as I know from the main guys are:

AA - no Rotrex ZHP software, working on TS
Technik - ZHP software in development
ESS - ASA and TS based ZHP kits available now
Dinan - no E46 superchargers ever produced
VF - E46 stage 1s, but no ZHP yet

I tested the ESS twinscrew sys on a 3l Z4 last time I were at their DVHP center i Norway and it was awsome! made me hungry for the same "punch"
It also looked amazing, the quality feeling was

I have the zhp software installed on my car, I've had it for a little while. I think ESS will have it out soon too, unless things have changed, I'm not sure though.
