My Ride: 3.5 IR vert M3
My Red Hot HPF M3!

Hey Everyone,

First off, I would like the Thank everyone at HPF for helping me! Thanks you Chris, David and John for everything! You guys are the coolest guys I’ve met!

As some of you know, before HPF, I had a supercharger kit installed on my car! After getting sick of idle surges, driving hesitations, re-clearing adaptation codes and dealing with a oil problem, I decided to step up and pull the trigger on a HPF Stage 2 turbo kit!

I drove my car all the way down to Portland, and met with Chris, David and the shop techs! Chris took me around the shop. One word, Unbelievable. I had never seen a shop so organized and clean! Before I knew it, I was on my way back home L.

After 2 months, having the Engine rebuilt and waiting for parts, I finally picked up my car on 12//11 , Thursday night. I saw my car parked in front of the shop. I was ecstatic! I met with Chris and David again. Chris had my keys and we jumped in my car for my first test drive! Put the key in the ignition, and the car started perfect! No idle surges or anything. HPF had race fuel in the car, but my first pull was on pump mode. The first thing I noticed was the blow off valves… I laughed like a little school girl, amazing!

The pump mode pull felt great! It kept me pinned in my seat and pulled hard all the way to redline! I had a meth switch installed, so Chris flips the switch. After one pull in 3rd gear on pump + meth, I want from yay to what the heck Chris!!!! OMG just incredibly fast! I was shaking.. Hahaha! Chris had a small grin on his face, and turned the race fuel switch on. At that point I was scared..lol So I downshifted into 3rd again, got onto a straight and opened her up! At 3k rpm, I hit full boost and was rocketing down the street! I felt like I had tunnel vision..haha I shifted into 4th and broke the tires loose. (30 degree weather). I was scarred and couldn’t even compose a sentence! I’m afraid of race fuel and meth!

After the test drive, Chris took my friends and I for some round table pizza! Yum! Thanks man!

I drove 3 hours back home and the car ran PERFECT! Just, PERFECT! Not a Single problem! Awesome! The intercooler and intake manifold were super cold.

Drivability: Perfect, and I have a smg. At first I had some bad chatter and Chris assured me the clutch needed to be broken in. After 300 miles and on the quickest shift setting, the clutch is perfect! The car runs really smooth and feels like stock! Starts perfect on the first try and zero idle issues! I love it!

Sorry for the long post! I can go on and on about this kit! Thanks HPF!!!J

Here are some pics and a dyno graph!

Damn, seems like the guys at HPF know how to treat customers. I consider that more important than product. Congrats on a badass set-up man. If i ever go Turbo, this thread definitiely made the desicion for me.

Congrats! By far the best looking vert I've seen since joining this site and looking into M3s. Don't forget to get us some more videos of pulls, speedo shots, and of course surprising other cars on the road that thought the M3 can't move.
