Talking Gintani = E46 M3 1ST air to liquid turbo - progress thread.

So, to make a long story short, I had my car at RMS (van nuys) for more then 8 months. Yes 8 months. They were supposedly working on the car, and there was no progress being made until I told RMS that they had 5 weeks left to finish the car. I come back after 5 weeks, and they said just give us more time, I gave them an extra 3 weeks, and ended up taking the car out of there (that was a good move).

I drove the car down to Gintani in Van Nuys, and left the car there for about 2 weeks to have them check RMS's work and products. We decided to swap out the entire kit for a air to liquid turbo setup.

I will update this thread with progress as I go to Gintani every now and then.

As for now, here are the pictures...

I also purchased CF fenders, CF OEM hood, CF CSL front bumper, CF OEM rear bumper w/CSL CF rear diffuser (pictures will be posted) WISH ME LUCK!




COMPARISON (LEFT = TURBO FROM GINTANI) (RIGHT = TURBO USED BY RMS)

Wow! You really like to do your own thing!

Stage X N/A build : Never finished tuning with wild cams

Custom S/C system: Never finished tuning

And now....

Custom Turbo.

Who's doing your tuning?

You have a beautiful car, and I really like what you want to do...but it's really disappointing seeing you getting taken repeatedly for a ride....

It still amazes me how people let RMS touch their cars. I wouldn't bring my car to them even if they offered me a free kit.

How many miles did they put on your car while they had it?

From your phrasing, I think "wouldn't" makes more sense.

In fo info,

He's referring to the intercooler (liquid cooled vs air to air like used by HPF & AA).

Ahhhhh, okay.

If that's what he meant, then I don't think it is the first liquid IC E46 around...

Probably from here, http://forum.E46Fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=711651. And the weight savings would be miniscule as we have aluminum fenders.

It's been used plenty with E46 M3 supercharger kits, but to my knowledge this would be the first L2A intercooled turbo E46 M3.
