    They say custom software is included with the kit, and it probably does take vanos into account, one way or another...

    ask them mate the supercharger works by increasing the air pressure this has nothing to do with the timing

    To reiterate what someone else said, a healthy 325 M50 block will handle the sort of boost your talking about. Possibly worth using a thicker head gasket and something like arp bolts just to be on the safe side but unless your running big boost the engine will be fine providing its in good nik. Obviously it will affect the life of the engine but that will happen what ever you do.

    I know of someone that ran an E36 328 with a supercharger and he was on stock internals. That has relevance as the M50 in the 325 is stronger than the M52 in the 328.

    The UK has been really slow on the forced induction BMW scene (probably because of the steering rack location not lending itself to turbo's) but they're mad on it over in Europe and the to a degree in the USA too. Alot of them are running maybe an extra 8 psi on stock internals and really rate it.

    IMO the best block to do FI on is the M50, the M42 is strong but only has 1.8ltr displacement so the results wont be as good as the 325.
