sounds good but most important of all the tuning, how are you going to tune it?

How can the kit be for both cars? :blink: And how do they plan on their customers tuning the car? I see no mention of an ECU upgrade.

It's $2500 for a box of parts and no way of this "kit" actually working on your car.

FYI - There are NO off the shelf turbo kits for E46's. I doubt some dude with an eBay sounding ad is going to whip one up when Active Autowerke, Technik Engineering, ESS Tuning, etc, don't offer a kit. :idea:

How could the kit be for both E36's and E46's? I also don't see any Engine Management there which is the probably the biggest hurdle in going FI. The hardware is only part of the equation, properly tuning the car's software is a lengthy and vital process.

Also, there are currently no bolt-on turbo kits for the E46 so if this guy is claiming that, then run far far away

dont want to settle for a supercharger? you would probably see more gains with a twin screw than a turbo...and you wouldn't have any lag.

Well you're going to have to settle because turbo kits don't exist.

can you send me a link so i can check it out?
ESS Tuning offers Twin Screw SC kits, they have many, many happy customers. There are also several makers that offer centrifugal SC kits for your car, just browse the FI forum for more info. :thumbup: Keep your options open and read/research what you can from different manufactures don't simply purchase based on regurgitated information that you've read from a forum, let alone people that may not even have a FI kit. ;)

How much do you want to spend? If you are on a budget, AA is having a special on there kits. I believe $4500. If money is not option, go with the twin screw.
