    I have made all connections required for setting up on rollers so thats not a problem.
    I fully understand the M3 option that is why price is a major factor in the development. So are you guys saying 2k sounds reasonable?.
    Thanks for your feed back

    2k seems to be reasonable price to me. What about remapping? hks gt 7040 kit will need bigger injectors? How many bhp this system consuming itself?

    2 grand is what I would pay, yes. that's if I could afford it!

    what level of gains would be possible and with what risk to reliability?

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

    2k is ok but fitting and setting up is going to be expensive. Any ideas on all in cost.

    Injectors and mapping will be all with kit. As superchargers go they always use a bit of bhp The hks gt7040 has reduced drag so it should be kept to a minimal but i do not have exact figures just yet as im still developing the kit.
    I was thinking of working in stages of kit. Stage 1 would run at 6.5 to 7 psi the M54 will run this all day with no probs, estimated BHP on a 330i is expected to achive over 360bhp running on 97+ octaine fuel
    Stage 2 would require engine modifactions and would run 8 to 9 psi and expected to produce over 400bhp again on the 330i
    the stage 2 would cost more as the engine will require modification.
    Thanks again for your feed back

    I am also installer and will produce my own software for the DME.
    Im unsure of the cost at the moment as im still in development of this kit. As im sure your awaire mounting brackets have to be custom made and im awating a quotation per unit on the palns i have made. I'm really just looking for what interest there is because its all very well having the product but without the custom its pretty much just a waist of time and money. Im just at that stage when i have to take a step back remove the blinkers and ask the question.
    Thanks

    If you have the cash and like to play around with engines then why not supercharge?
    but for me the m3 is the logical answer.
    It'll be easier to insure or probably the same price and be easier to sell.
    Someones already done the hard work for me and I know the car will last a long time.
    Takes me back to the days of my fords and vauxhalls when I was forever fixing them just wanting a reliable car.
    My escort was falling to bits at 38k when my compact did 186k, e36 328i did 154k and my e39 528i had dome 165k.
    Funny that I only paid £500 less for the escort than I did the m3 lol.

    2k fitted sounds a great deal and it is cheaper than an m3 as most m3's will be more than 2k more than a 330 plus if you have a sorted 330 its a safer bet than an unknown m3
    I would be very interested in the stage one kit.
