ESS supercharger kit for maximum power. G-Power or any other producers will also be a good idea for the upgrade. Such supercharger kits will make it possible for the engine to perform up to 350 HP and even more with stock M54B30 engine internals. Stock pistons and connecting rods are able to handle up to 400 HP.

I think the weak points of the upgrade will be the tranny and the chassis mounting points for the rear subframe.

So I should reinforce the subframe and get a different transmission?

He means, Auto to manual if you want more than 7-8 psi boost and yes, re-enforce your subframe.

Why not keep it automatic? And just get a better automatic transmission transmission
