My Ride: Turbo M3
I just watched the entire video! I love the HPF turbo system. Thanks for answering the questions! Chris is the best.

Mad props! I would be so stoked to be Robert right there. You guys pick him up in his car at the airport with 110 in the tank. You guys are smart. Amazing job!



I was when you said, "Please don't kill me!"

P.S. I got a little worried when he asked about having to use straight race fuel or if he could use a mixture. Oh boy...he better not mix any fuel and then flip the switch.

That's my favorite part of the job. The excitement and appreciation we get from our customers make all of this worthwhile.

Robert drove his car home today so no more videos on it unless he takes them. He lives about a 5 hour drive away so hopefully he makes it without getting arrested. He really likes to drive fast!

Here's a picture of some turbo's in our warehouse ready to be installed on M3s.

Take care,
Chris.

You can't decide between the AA S3 S/C setup and the HPF se4tup? Is that what you are saying? Well they are two different animals. If you want more linear power which the track guys seem to like then go S/C. If you want brutal slam you in the seat and leave black lines everywhere you go torque...then you want turbo. I prefer violent turbo.

Damn Chris, you had that video up before I even got home!
I just wanted eveyone to know that my car drove FLAWLESSLY for my trip home. I had the cruise control set on about 80, the windows up, and the ac on. It was smooth, quiet, (unless you get on it), and well mannered. I also got a little over 21 mpg! That's my actual calculations, not what the computer said. I was bummed when I had to put pump gas in, but I had some awesome pulls on the freeway running race gas. ****, that thing does 80 to 120 in about three seconds. My fear of jail time, and the lack of open road kept me from continuing into 5th gear, but i doubt that car will let your face relax until you hit the 155 limit. Anyway, for the the people debating on whether or not they should do this to their car, it does everything they say it does. When I rode the HPF car, I new I was getting mine done even if I had to work three jobs. It is worth every penny in my opinion. It was absolutely agonizing to watch the video of my car ripping down the road the day before I picked it up. Thanks for that little bit of torture Chris! I really can't say enough about everyone at HPF, not only for the fantastic work they did on my car, but also how I was treated as a customer. You guys rule!

I couldn't agree with you more on the last part. Dealing with them so far has been a pleasure and I have yet to deal with any company that cared more then me about my own car. David and Chris are stand up guys in my book. Can't wait to do more business with them in the future.

Chris..for your Stage II Kit:

1. What's getting added to the Kit (ex. Methanol, etc)?
2. How much more in cost will it be for a Stg. II?
3. What numbers are you expecting on pump gas (91/93) and race gas (110/c16)?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Robert. We appreciate you. I'm glad you made it home without a ticket. I look forward to hearing the kill stories. Did you get a chance to race that Mustang yet?

The stage 2 kit is a plug-n-play methanol injection system. Because the compression of the stock motor is so high, the benefits of methanol will be slightly less, but we'd still like to see 500rwhp on 91 octane pump gas when methanol is in the tank. The price of this system will be $2500, and it will become active only when you need it. One gallon of methanol will last the everyday driver quite some time.

Thanks Fabio. You will be the first to have the "polished" HPF turbo intake manifold, piping and intercooler. I look forward to seeing you win some shows!

Will do. The SMG car will get the turbo kit installed this week and we will finalize the tuning near the tail end. Barring any unforeseen issues, I would like to have Alvin's SMG done and picked up by the customer in 2 weeks. I will definitely post up vids of his M3 at that point.

The Precision T67 turbo's we're using will be for those running stages 1 and 2. A larger turbo will be used in stage 3.

Take care,
Chris.

Excellent write-up! I am so glad that you are happy with the system. Your write-up states perfectly how a happy customer expresses his piece of mind when dealing with such top notch service.

DO ME A FAVOR:

Please post the video, dyno and this paragraph in a new thread on m3forums. This video and your reaction are exactly what they need to see and hear over there. You just can't fight it. When dealing with a speed shop that is exactly how I would want to be treated and everyone else does too. I wish they did a turbo kit for the e36 so I didn't have to waste over a year messing around with trying to get a custom system to work.

Good to hear you made it safe! That car is a beast. Hope to see some sweet videos of kills soon.
