Review after having HPF Stg 2 for 2.5 months

After going through hell with my VF Stage 2 Supercharger (separate thread I don’t want to go into) and spending over $12,000 on it to never have it run right, I am completely in love with my M3 once again. Ever since I got my car back from HPF I have yet to experience any issues whatsoever. I have put almost 3,000 miles since I got her back and when I am home (I travel a lot for work) I try and drive her as much as I can ~ 4 times a week on average. The car is simply amazing and HPF has met and far exceeded my expectations. Much props to David, Chris, and the other HPF guys for a job well done. Thanks again guys!!!

First Impressions:
- The car actually starts up with no idle surges whatsoever!!
- I have 4.10s diff on, when I punch it there is very little turbo lag. If I upgrade to 2.5 or 3, I’ll probably have to swap back to stock diff.
- I love the sound of the blow-offs…. Pure sex!!
- The amount of power/torque is incredible. Definitely blows my old supercharger out of the water
- Build quality and attention to detail is amazing
- Customer support is top notch. I needed to purge my Meth system since I ran it bone dry- I called the “special” number during the weekend and got great friendly service

Thanks again HPF!!

Good deal! The HPF Tech Line is definately an awesome perk to have... ChrisK knows the ins and the outs of this kit like nobody else. Props to HPF.

Happy to hear that your car is running great Patrick!! My friend with the E60 M5 spotted you by Great America Prkw and from far away he thought that it was my car ... but I don't have any HPF badge on it!! We should gather together one of those days!!

Nice, glad to see you are enjoying her to the fullest man. I've said it before and I'll keep on saying, the peace of mind you get from all the support team at HPF, specially Chris K is worth the money we pay.
