I've had an update last week from Pete at GKD on where we are with the charger kit. Not had a chance to post on here until now.
There have been a few modifications to the kit so I’m told, and are still going through manufacture. The main one is to the throttle body, to make it also fit into an E30 as well as E36. It will be another few weeks, so I reckon another month. Which is ok by me – can’t be arsed with standing about outside in this cold!!
see he has a couple of vids on youtube of the gkd s/c kit on his gkd legend
you not got yours yet?
No mate not yet, just some welding left to do so im told. Cant pick it up for 3 weeks anyway as going away with work again and then a mates wedding for a whole weekend! But not long left to go. Have sourced a good second hand m45 charger now though, will post up some pics soon
It's great to hear your progress. I've already got a m 45 supercharger and I'm only waiting to see how the kit goes before I take the next step. Hope all goes smoothly looking forward to the results
Just swapped out the old pre-production plenum to Pete's production one so here is a pic of it, excuse the battery charger leads hanging over the place. Note the solution for the MAF in this set up is different to the E36. On a private road with this light car 2nd gear lasts about 2.5 secs so 30-60 is quick, in may be my imagination but the exhaust note seems to have deepened too and there is virtually no supercharger whine I've heard but then no windscreen makes for a windy noisy experience anyway. There were quite a few small changes Pete showed me but perhaps others might not be able to spot them all from a pic.
^^ the whine is half the fun
Had an update from Peter at GKD today. The kit is ready! I'm getting the brand new production kit so I'm told. I can't go and pick it up until 11th May unfortunately. But it's finally ready!
