Redline Speed Worx Presents: Saad Racing / Pro EFI Stage 3 Build

Redline Speed Worx is proud to present the build thread of our shop E46 M3.

We have been in the the "european repair & performance" community for a number of years now. You may already be familiar with our work in the Audi, VW, Mercedes Benz & Porsche markets and we please invite you to visit our website (www.RedlineSpeedWorx.com), our Flickr Account, as well as our Facebook Page which we do update daily ! We pride ourselves on high end repair work, and do specialize in engine / transmission rebuilds as well as aftermarket turbocharger systems.

If you AREN'T familiar with our work take a moment to check out our "SHOP LIFE" thread here on e46fanatics ! It displays some of the work we have completed over the past few months !

We have FINALLY decided it was time to build a BIG power BMW, and what better platform than that of the E46 M3.

Our Shop M3 will be receiving a complete Saad Racing Stage 3 Turbocharger system. The entire vehicle is currently being overhauled from a complete engine rebuild, drivetrain upgrades, braking system upgrades, suspension overhaul as well as the installation of a complete Pro EFI engine management system.

The first post of this thread will outline the components currently going into the vehicle from Saad Racing as well as Pro EFI.

Precision Turbocharger 6766

This seems awesome!! Very interested in this build

I have a question. I have been a lurk trying to learn about all these turbo systems. Love HPF, am waiting to hear more info on Maximum PSI, but really am interested in the SAAD racing turbo. Charlie (M5chas)'s M3 was a monster! The only thing I cannot find is pricing on SAAD racing kits, and the stages they have with power output?

I am on the east coast so having all these shops appear in NJ is only making me want to pull the trigger faster.

Sorry if this jacked your thread a little bit, Good luck with the build!

Just buy an HPF kit instead of copying it.

Yes they are E85 compatible

The pumps are staged, 1st pump comes on at 3500 RPM and the second at 4500 RPM.

Whats nice is that the stock pump is used at all times so there is no extra burden on the 044's

I was just pointing out that your wording is misleading. Nothing is fully compatible if it has a limited lifespan as stated by the manufacturer. Plenty of 044 failures on E85.

Saad has put together a great kit, but changing the pumps to fuelab or walbro 416s which are 100% E85 compatible with no time limitations would be a prudent move for cars planning on flex fuel. For the extreme cost of these kits, and pumps now designed for E85, doesnt make sense to cut that corner.

The link you posted does include a 500 hour run-time limit in the installation notes. The exact wording is: "With E26/E85 or Diesel fuel run-time max. 500 h"

That makes me think Bosche expects that it would normally fail sooner.

Seems like the pump only makes sense for temporary uses like testing or tuning an E85 setup.

That reads like incompatible to me too. Good catch.

These pumps have ran on some of SAAD's builds that run E85 for over 15,000 miles.

Kind of off topic.. But where can we find out updates about pro efi.. Was hoping they eventually be available for the e92 me.... I also was thinking of adding pro efi to my max psi kit depending on what fueling option become available

Lol, there are tons of cars running Bosch 044 pumps with straight E85 for several years and thousands of miles with no issue. I have yet to see a failed Bosch 044. I know Saad has them on Lamborghini's, GTR's, Viper's, and M3's all working flawlessly!

On a side note, AMAZING kit! Can't wait to see the final build and all the POWER!! Thats a very unique kit with tons of detail! I love how the Intake plenum is made of all billet parts instead of all the shitty cast manifolds! That header looks amazing with all 6 runners merging directly in the flange! Should flow Great!

I also want to add that there is 2 parameters for the fuel pumps. rpm and boost. Both of those limits have to be met for them to turn on. The pump may only run for 3 to 10 seconds when racing and may never turn on when daily driving. As a point of reference, you can get 3500 10 second passes before the Bosch estimated failure. Understand also that Bosch is going to underestimate the longevity to stamp warranty issues.

Thanks for the kind words! SAAD has done a great job designing and fabricating this kit.
