• 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.

        EAS just posted a dyno of the VF540 kit at 4-4.5psi with 91 Octane over on Bimmerpost. I imagine this kit will be rather popular since the upgrade looks to be rather easy to go to the VF620 since one doesn't have to change or pay for a new manifold!

        Nice work VF Engineering.

        The car was out all day yesterday at our 4th open track event (opentrackdayevents.com) Ran a 1:30.x on Thunderbolt at full full weight (stock seats, everything) street tires, 'autox' pads. We have been flogging it hard - and it keeps on chugging along.

        few pics: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...9758168&type=1

        Starting tomorrow at 7AM the car will be out of the building for 2 weeks...some much needed R&D time for a badass new, soon to be released product.

        ps. It's a shop car, Klevis just hogs it up ;-)

        Yea since the car is really driven daily (often by Tony) they were too much of a hassle. Racetech makes the best and most comfortable fixed race seat, but it's no match to the stock seat for comfort and convenience Click here to enlarge
