Hi guys, sorry for the lack of updates. I was away on vacation and very busy finishing up some projects and customer cars. The e46 is still at my shop with a few more hardware changes taking place before it goes back to Nick's for final revisions. The process is taking longer than I hoped for, however I want to make sure everything runs flawless and fits perfectly before the kit is released. Early 2012 is a likely timeline. I have been driving the car every day and it runs great.

Thanks,
Mike

Do you have any idea for general power output that will be available with the first release of the kit?

They mentioned holding off on releasing HP figures until all final changes to the 'kit' are completed. This is normal practice by tuners for many reasons. If you just want a 'basic range' of what kind of power increase to expect.. simply add approx. 50% to the power your currently making N/A. Final HP numbers for the kit may be slightly higher due to extra efficiencies built into the hardware/intercooling/tuning but you can expect to make 50% more power pressurizing an N/A motor to 8LBS of intercooled boost.
...hence, a healthy stock car putting down ~280rwhp on a dynojet would/should put down an honest 420RWHP with the kit at 8psi. (i.e. 50% of 280rwhp (140RWHP) added to the base/or stock number)

Sorry for the lack of updates, we had the car shipped back here from Florida upon failure of the oil-less Comp turbo and decided to make some hardware revisions at the same time. We are happy with how the new revisions progressed and wanted to post up some current dyno plots as the car currently sits. Our dyno is a Superflow Autodyn 30 and reads pretty conservative. We will try and get some dynojet numbers up soon as a comparison. In the meantime we posted up some stock and SC dyno plots to compare the results. These are not the final numbers, however we wanted to finally show some results. We will be sending the car back to Florida soon for the final tweaks and then getting ready to start selling some kits!

The first graph shows two stock NA plots vs. our turbo kit on 93 octane:


The second graph shows our turbo kit vs. VT2-500 centrifugal supercharger kit(and also why we love turbo cars):

Thumbs Up

Haha, you like how my fearless predictions on my last post were right on the money...i've been tuning cars for a looong time..

These are actually more impressive results than expected however, what is most telling about these posted graphs are the stock M3's put up against the turbo kit* It not only illustrates how conservative your dyno truly reads (at ~250rwhp for a stock M3) but moreso displays a nearly 170RWHP improvement over the stock car. You simply can't ask for anything better/more than that on 93oct piss fuel reliably... great work guys, now finalize any last second bugs, pull some strong dynojet numbers, and build me the first kit!

VERY NICE!! These preliminary dyno numbers look VERY promising towards the final product. Glad to finally start seeing more E46 M3 turbo options come to life.

This is what I'm talking about! 250whp for stock M3? I'm predicting a 450whp kit, which in my opinion is perfect. Higher torque, but still drivable. Anyway a buyer can get a more conservative tune so an upgraded clutch is not needed?

How conservative is this tune? If a pump jockey throws 87 in the car...and if 91 is the only fuel available like in >50% of North America...will I detonate or run higher risk of detonation? I have been thinking of getting another M3 in SMG for the little mrs...and I can't think of anything better than this...

It had a manual boost controller so it spiked to 9psi and dropped to 8psi for the upper rpm's.

The car has a stock clutch and flywheel in it right now. It feels great! The nice thing about a turbo car is you can lower the boost a bit if you want to dial it down. Or, you can get a boost controller like an ams-500 that will let you tailor the ramp rate to your liking.

We will likely have a separate calibration for those plagued with 91 octane "premium" fuels to keep things safe.
The car is running on the factory DME, so it does have active knock control. You should always make sure the attendant isn't pumping 87 octane into any FI'd car. I always keep an eye on the pump if someone else fills up my car.
