Please post some pictures if you can! How do you like the kit? Also if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for it?

Any thoughts on driveability, would you do it again ?

I'm very interested in your thoughts on this kit, also what kit model number did you use for your ZHP, .....VFKxx-xx ?

Video of the VF start up.

Driveablity is excellent. Idle smooth, rev smooth. Boost comes in around 2500-2800 rpm and progressive. Its quiet when running, I got the kit used from a local e46 owner. I drove his car before I brought the kit. I had the SC rebuilt and powder coated black. It use to be polished. Mine is a older V2 version s.c. the new ones are v3 internal oiled sealed unit. Even more quiet but need special oil change.

link won't load if I use the mobile version so here is the video.

The SC whine sounds louder in the video than it really is in person. Its not that loud in person. You can hear it and ppl know its a SC but you don't hear it when driving.

I paid
$800 for the kit
$600 for DME reflash from VF
$500 for SC rebuild parts+ labor
$30 for flexi ducting ( so I can still use my bi-xenon light)
$25 for serp. belt (I needed a new one since I am running UUC UDP)
under $2000 for the SC install
I also did a whole bunch of maintence items while I was in there so that added up to alot more but I wouldn't count it as part of the SC built/install
I did the whole install myself- took me 2 weekends as I did it slow and had to email VF many times to verify I did the routing right. I can now do this in 6 hrs like VF say.

Ya I have a heated 2 car garage and tools. I have just put a new DISA and installed a Catch can already. All I need to do is install the supercharger kit. It is a used kit as well so I am going to test the blower first. It is suppose to have everything needed for the install.
