Anybody have a RHD HPF Kit on thier car?

Hello Guys,

I'd like to have a Turbo on my E46 M3, as I already own 2 Turbo cars and have in the past.

I'm wondering if anybody here owns a RHD Turbo kit from HPF and can chime in with some opinions on how it drives and what times at the drag strip they have been able to achieve?

My second question is about the Installation, is it a Motor out job especially to get that manifold fitted or can it be done while on a hoist?

Thanks.

Thanks for that, bit of info there mentions good drivability.

I'm wondering if anybody on this forum runs one though, I'm keen to know what Terminal Speeds this kit can do at which boost level,
and 50 - 75mph acceleration time.

The Dyno results show about 25hp difference at the Engine when running Methanol injection, can anybody who's tried this on the RHD kit say if you can actually feel the difference,
as I'm trying to decide whether to pay for the additional meth kit or not.

I believe there is one other RHD HPF guy. And he is a member here. Maybe Mach might remember him. His sig is a black M3 with Jezebel written in the pic.

You will need to read through some old HPF threads to find him. Haven't seen him in here in a while.

I'll have a look, just need to get an Idea of what the RHD Kit Stage 1 (Or LHD Stage 1 for that matter) terminal speed can be achieved down the 1/4 mile on PUMP GAS.
I had a look at the 1/4 mile thread bust most people were running race gas on their times.

I wonder if there is any other people that make Turbo kits for the E46 M3 that have some drag results.

Anybody know?

Cheers.
