Man, lately I have really been looking into this and all I am hearing is bad things. There has GOT to be one successful supercharged M3!!! What ever happened to the Evosport M3? Someone shed some light over here :ben:

The bad news is its not happening without de-tuning the engine. Samir himself said that 13:1 compression ratio and forced induction are just not happening. Without wasting a good amount of money, ie getting lower compression pistons etc, its not going to happen. And you know, if you go custom, there is going to be an m3 "premium" on top of the bmw "premium" heh.

how come 330 engines are capable of 400HP with FI
while the m3 engine just goes kaboom. i mean couldnt they have a supercharger for the m3 with low boost something like 3-4 psi to get it to 400hp mark.

i think acs is coming out with one

that gives you 425h/p but they bring down the comp. from 13 to1
to 9 to one but the bad news is it costs 17,000 to do if you wanted to get 400h/p you can do it maybe but cost will be
around 10,000 i say you can do this to get it to 400 h/p

perf. air intake
comp. softwear
perf exhaust system with headers
larger throttle bodies
lighter fly wheel
under line pullies
plasma spark plugs
these are bolt on stuff if you want to get crazy then you could do
these things but it starts to get expensive
hotter cams
larger rear end pinon gear or shorter gear larger number gear like
411 or 433
blue print the engine if you wanted to
and their are a few more things but off the top of my head i don't recall.

but do the first 6 or 7 things i list and i think you can get very close to 400h/p

AA has a kit coming out soon, check their site; rumor has it testing is done on it. That will prob be your best option.

For $10,000 I'd rather drop in a M5 engine

except it would cost substantially more than 10K..
What he said not to mention getting the DME right... takes quite a bit of resources.

Because the M3 engine has a much higher compression ratio. BMW tunes the M3 engine to the max from factory, and so adding a supercharger will destroy it.

Thx rich


Yeah isnt the M3 engine around 17K? I could imagine the M5 engine being much more

I guess I will work on some other mods until something is out and running. thx boys
