FS: Active Autowerke Twinscrew Supercharger

SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLD

SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLD

The price is : $2650 shipped within the US. I don't charge extra for paypal fees...that's stupid.

Details. This is an ultra rare Active Autowerke Stage 2 Twinscrew Supercharger. The equivalent of an ESS TS2+. I bought this used in 2008 from Garrett at UED. Had it installed on my 330 (MS45 DME) since 2008. Its run strong, had some issues at idle with surging on and off throughout the years. I'm convinced it is a software issue. Originally dyno'd at 345hp/300tq (s/c kit, cams, headers) from a baseline of 193hp/195tq with an off the shelf tune. It was rich so I'm sure there is more power to be had. I never chased it. My engine blew at the track Mar 2012 which also took out the supercharger. The compressor was replaced (not rebuilt!) with a Kenny Bell. Same case, same size but is slightly more efficient (more boost).

Why am I selling? The 330 is not made for the track. Even moreso, an FI'd 330 is NOT made for the track. The problem is I keep the tach pinned to redline with 11lbs of boost. I'm VERY hard on the engine. Unless I go to great expense and MOST IMPORTANT find an engine builder and tuner that can work hand in hand, I'm going to be going through engines on an annual basis. I found a builder, found a tuner...I can't get past the hand in hand part. So for my wallet, sanity, peace of mind and track pleasure...I am going with an E46 M3 for my track car.

SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLDSOLD

But this setup was fantastic on the street. It was a ton of fun. I would like to return to those days but I have an E90 M3 for that now. Even on the track it was a beast. I would keep up with upgraded E9X M3s, stripped E46 M3s with 4.1 gears, C6 (non-Z06) vettes. When you added in corners, I was keeping up with a C5 vette that had a $100,000 dumped into it with slicks...I WAS ON STREET TIRES! I run with one of the faster advanced groups in TX (probably the fastest)...I would get passed MAYBE 4 times the entire weekend even if I lined up towards the front. Again, I'm usually the ONLY one (maybe 2 others) that is on street tiresw which is a severe disadvantage. After a session, I would always get, "Now that's not stock...I couldn't even catch you on the straights"...got that from a Viper driver. This was a ton of fun on the track as well and I REALLY wish I could keep this setup. At this point...I'd rather be married.

The kit is still on the car. I should have my car back soon from its engine rebuild. It will come off with everything you need to bolt it on except for instructions. AA never published E46 specific instructions. I will document the removal as much as I can and email you E36 M3 instructions which do help.

Tuning. You can contact AA for an off the shelf tune. I've been quoted $500 in the past. If you're in Texas, I believe Eurocharged can jail break the Simon and do a dyno tune.

SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLDSOLD SOLDSOLD

Here is what is included:

1.7L Kenny Belle compressor w/bracket (it has a cracked piece but not an issue)
Laminova cores
AA Intake manifold
New M52 intake gaskets
All hardware
10psi pulley (actually does 11psi with the new compressor)
New mechanical tensioner (important)
2 drive belts
AA spec'd fuel injectors
CAI system (reuse your throttle body and MAF) with air filter
Upper radiator hose
Simon software flasher (throwing this in for free)
Bypass valve + Spare (one is 9 months old, the spare is functional but could use a rebuild)
Heat exchanger (spray painted black with radiator paint)
Water pump + spare for heat exchanger (both work)
Hoses for heat exchanger

I have some FI cams in my car. You can have them as long as you provide me with OEM 330 cams and pay for the labor to change the cams out.

Maybe this is a farewell address...it is really hard for me to do this but the time has come. I absolutely LOVE my 330 and it has so much more speed in it that I have yet to find. I really, really, really hate doing this. I think the price is fair and I do hope that this kit finds a good home. But it was F*&CKING AWESOME while it lasted. I always got out of the car with a smile on my face. For that...I think $2650 shipped is a fantastic price!

How does it do with changes in the weather? Does it mind idling on cold days?

Honestly, I can say for sure. It has idled smoothly from 0 degrees to 110 degrees. It has idled rought from 0 degrees to 110 degrees. I think the only way to get it right is to have someone tune it that has the capability to measure timing, fuel and whatever else.

Not trying to say that AA sucks but remote tuning is a massive PIA.

PM sent...USPS is only showing express options.

I added some videos. 138mph on the front straight at Texas World Speedway? In a 3300 lb 330Ci? That's pretty bad a$$!

I just wanted to make sure I'm clear on this...

An AA Simon is included to upload software. It has a tune on it for my car. You are responsible for the tuning and jail breaking the simon for your car. There is a cost to that...please contact AA to work something out between you and them. It will be much better for all if you deal directly.

You don't need the Simon...just a tool to upload tunes into the car.

I don't see why not. I think the OE intake manifolds are the same between the 325 and 330. There is only minor wiring. I don't think anything in the belt drive system is different.

But I can't say for sure. I'd contact Active and ask that question.

Dammit if that offer falls through please allow me to serve as a backup because I'd take it like I stole it at that price. Dammit.

I'll post when I receive full payment or it will be back up for sale noon on Thurs CST (10:00am PST).

Yes, this is an awesome deal if you ask me. If you're efficient, you could have this installed and tuned for around $4k.

I never understand why people part all this out. Looks like Frankenstein was created in your engine bay, and now you have to remove it all. Why not just sell the whole damn car and get more for it? Things like this I do not get

Still parting the car.

you've got a lot to learn if you think that selling a fully modded car nets you more money than parting out.

but then again, you're also referring to an engine bay with a VAC oil cooler and AA Supercharger as Frankenstein, so it goes without saying that you've got a lot to learn.

Glad to see the S/C is going to a good home.
