Nah I think that I am out of the game. Hopefully the M3 will not blow up and keep me smiling for a while, but family takes up too much priority now in the financial department for any new projects.

This sounds awesome and finally it should stop some people knocking down on the M3's traction issues with high hp. I also can't wait if Chris pops in a 76mm-80mm on a S4 M3. It's great seeing that a company respects the factor of driveability rather than just all power. Power is only useful if you can get it on the ground and I'm happy to see HPF taking great strides on achieving that. The M3's should not only make big numbers (the talk), but put it down as well (the walk). Walking the talk means everything in the performance auto world as we know it.

Oh well...I guess non-M e46rs will never see the light of day of a turbo alternative to super chargers. I'm not asking to burn M3's but can a brotha get a little something so we can keep up with at least a G37!!!

As we can adjust the cam tuning with the vanos, there's no reason to upgrade the camshaft with any of our stages of turbo kits. We made 858rwhp at 25psi with factory cams.

The RHD M3 should be arriving here this week "hopefully". Once we get it we will begin developing the RHD version.

If we get too close to the end of the turbo with the 74GTS, we'll make stage 4 utilize a 76GTS. I really don't want to add any lag, so we're going to see how much we can get out of the 74GTS.

Me too. We're getting a car in the next couple weeks to turbocharge that will be running the time attack series.

Furthemore, I was wondering what is the news and status of the e39 M5 Kits? I know you mentioned it was on hold until MFest is over. Reason I ask, I am highly interested in seeing what you have to offer and the performance it will make becuase not only will I be shipping my M3 to you, I also will be shipping my M5 as well.

I just can't wait when I come to pick up both the M3 and M5 with the HPF Kits.

Thanks!
We're putting our M5 development on the shelf for now. We have to go where the money is first, and after spending a bunch on the M5 project I feel that was probably not the correct car to do profitwise. So we're shifting gears and doing the RHD M3, the 330i, then the E39 M5.

Take care,
Chris.

i hope to buy RHD 330 turbo kit. I am very sure when HPF comes out with this kit, it will be very saleable too.

The RHD product set will make a huge difference to international presence that's for sure. And unlock a big cost/benefit boost to HPF since 99% of the engineering is already done.
