Day Visit for an HPF Stage 3 - Another Pony For His Stable



John purchased this M3 3 months ago with an HPF Stage 3 Turbo Kit already installed in it. In that short amount of time, he has only driven the beauty with pump gas and has not even dared to switch on methanol. He pretty much has only scratched the surface of what this 800+ hp car is capable of.

“The car is beyond anything I’ve ever owned” John says. “It’s just exhilarating.”



Driven from Seattle, the M3 is at HPF today for some basic maintenance. An oil change, an HPF Oil Catch Tank Install, leak down / compression test, and an overall sweep around the car to make sure the kit is up to par and healthy. It’ll also make an appearance on the dyno to see what kind of numbers the kit is currently putting down. John plans on coming back for some minor upgrades to the Stage 3. He might even surprise us for a request to go to Stage 4. But for now, we’ll just be enjoying this gem while it graces our shop with her presence.































As always PM or Email me if you have any questions and more pictures on our Blog.

Got some vids of John's car on the dyno with his reactions and his first impressions of 750rwhp when I took him for a ride. I left them on Kris's desk so he can put the vids together on Tuesday and get it up on our blog.

Chris.
