Maximum PSI review - Evolve E9X M3 E600 Supercharger System

After reading about Evolve's E9X supercharger kit, and later seeing pictures of the hardware, I asked a local Evolve E600 customer to bring his car to our shop to dyno test and look over. He was nice enough to accept my offer and we spent a few hours going over the hardware, install, and then made a bunch of dyno pulls.

First look, the kit is an engineering masterpiece. CNC'd aluminum components are found everywhere. Custom molded silicone hoses fit perfectly and connect to a beautiful, huge, air-air FMIC that sits behind the front bumper. An 8 rib pulley system to eliminate belt slippage. The overall appearance is super clean and matches the styling of the car.

I drove the car around town to test drivability and then took it for some high speed blasts. I can say the kit runs as good as it looks. After my street test, we strapped it to our Superflow chassis dyno and made numerous pulls. The car performed flawlessly and was extremely repeatable run to run.

Dyno runs:

The verdict:
Appearance, fitment, drivability, and performance. Normally you have to make a sacrifice somewhere, but this kit hit the mark with all aspects. This was all we needed to give Evolve a call and set ourselves up as a dealer/installer!

Very nice. Evolve guys know what they are doing.

BTW that dyno of yours is a heartbreaker i have to say. Didn't the car put down 550-ish numbers on DJ recently?

Wow, that finish looks OEM. If I didn't already know the e9x's were N/A and it didn't say Evolve I would have thought that the engine bay was all original factory equipment.

Glad to see others are realizing what I said earlier. The kit is awesome

And yes, the car did do 550+ a few times just a few days later on a DynoJet, but the conditions were a bit more favorable. I would honestly expect the car to do about 530hp on a DJ any other given time repeatedly.

Ive run several cars now and youtube has all of them, just search for evolve M3

Great review and nice to see MaximumPSI supporting Evolve Automotive. No doubt it will be a mutually beneficial relationship.

I have to find out how to grow this money tree so I can get a kit for my E90 M3!
