    • VF-Engineering VF620 BMW E9X (E90) M3 S65 V8 supercharger kit install photos, videos, and before/after dyno on 91 octane

      The VF-Engineering kit may have been the last to market of the major US players for the S65 V8 in the M3 but it definitely is making some waves. The M3 receiving the install here is an E90 with DCT. The baseline on the car completely stock was a very healthy 351 wheel horsepower on the EAS dynojet. After the install? 521 wheel horsepower on 91 octane. A very healthy gain of 170 wheel horsepower which is a realistic gain on 91 octane.

      Installation generally takes about 3 business days.

        its pretty accurate. for E92, use 3450lbs since we are usually at race weight

        VAC had a BBQ/Open house today. Very Intelligent people were there to discuss some intricate things. Way over my head, but worhtwhile if your really into learning about new things comin out..

        anyway, saw the VAC/VF car again, its really growing on me. I love that its all about function-OEM look (to those who dont know what OEM actually looks like) and performance oriented.

        Thats what got me thinking to look for VAC and VF information again. I just re-read this whole thing

        Car is a beast though, definatly the fastest M3 ive ever been in. The new suspension is spot on, and i think Im gonna have to side with a few people on tire choice of R888's

        Its usually out at some local smaller meets, and as far as I know, all the larger ones as well. It does a lot of track duty on weekends I believe. Pretty sure it will be at Mpact too

        Even though I work ~30 mins from VAC, feel like it'd be worthless to swing by after work?? Worth making the trek?

        I'm always down to see what an ///M can do haha. I saw that thread you made & after seeing videos/other people's reviews + dynos, it just seems like the VF620 is the "best" (very bold claim, I know) all around S/C kit for the S65. Is it (the VAC VF620) still the 1/4 mile record holder???
