    Hello
    Im looking to find out how much interest there is in a uk produced supercharger kit for the M54 engine.
    Im currently in development stages of this kit so what im looking for is some feedback on intrest in a fully installed kit,
    How much you would expect to pay, and also what model BMW you have?.

    This post is for market reaserch only.
    I have had approval from the forum moderators for this post.

    Thanks .

    I'm sure they'll be plenty of interest but most of that will fade when they realise just how much a 'charger costs. For example here is one developed for the 328: VF Engineering. With that is mind, and what I paid for my 'charger for my 318is I would expect costs to be around £3000. But then you have to factor in that the extra power means you'll need bigger brakes and possibly a new clutch (more money). The other thing to take into account for BMWs is the extra weight of the 'charger and upsetting the 50:50 balance. What about cooling? Will the kit allow for an intercooler or will meth injection be used instead?

    I've got 2002 e46 330ci with ~63k miles. Really would like to fit but I've seen couple of supercharger kits for my car with price around 4k quid . Pff...Same money what my car is worth. For that money I'd sell my car and buy e46 m3.

    It is based around the hks gt 7040 this is a nice light charger, and will have intercooler with install. I'm awaire of the other products on the market so i have a good idea of there cost but im sure i can undercut this price.
    Thanks for your feed back

    Yes i have had this conversation lots of times that is why im looking to make a more cost affective option. 4K seems a totally crazy price was that installed ?

    Hi Kev,

    The real problem with supercharging our 6 cylinder e46s is the m3 - those of us who lust afer more power of course want an m3.
    I would say anything over 2 grand becomes false economy asthe prices of m3s are still falling.

    I'm sure people would buy them at 2ish grand but I don't know if that price is feasible. including fitting mapping etc

    you'd probably want to thing about how you would get the car on a rolling road too (hook up with someone local, although there probably isn't by you lol) because if i was spending 2 grand tuning my car I would insit on seeing the reuslts on the rollers.

    Best
    James

    I'm here for a good time not a long time

    Exactly what I was thinking about that.
