    • Another contender enters the E9X M3 S65 V8 supercharger ring - Evolve Automotive supercharger kit teaser

      The reveal of this information did not go exactly as planned as BimmerBoost vendor Evolve automotive wanted the reveal to take place here. Unfortunately, certain competitors got wind of Evolve entering the hotly contested E92 M3 supercharger market and set out to do their typical discrediting of competing products. It is for this reason that Evolve wanted to stay away from any other sites and do their reveal here. The official reveal may have been spoiled somewhat but here are the details on the three upcoming versions of the Evolve supercharger kit.


      There will be intercooled and non-intercooled versions. When speaking with Sal from Evolve during development BimmerBoost put emphasis on creating a non-intercooled version. Salman stated that he believes the S65 is extremely temperature sensitive from what he has seen from testing and did not necessarily like the idea. However, BimmerBoost believes an entry level alternative is necessary to what is already on the market. After some debate Evolve decided they will offer a 4-5 psi non-intercooled entry level kit.

      All Evolve kits use a Rotrex C38-91 supercharger. This is the largest supercharger in the Rotrex C38 range and it flows 11% more air than the C38-81. The RPM limit on this blower is 90,000 rpm, higher than any S65 V8 kit using a Vortech blower. No other kit features a Rotrex blower.






      This is the C38-91 compressor map:


      The C38-91 retails alone for $2595.

      [email]Sal@evolve has made a big point about the cooling when supercharging with this motor. That is why the plenum design is innovative and features a larger volume than competitors. The design of the kit is built around intercooling and not charge cooling.

      8 psi is good for the ~625 crank range. Here are dyno graphs at 7.5 psi on pump gas with the Evolve exhaust system:

      Flywheel:


      Wheels:


      Evolve has tested up to 9 psi but believes anything higher than 8 is pushing it on the stock internals with this blower. Production kits will feature 8psi for markets with fuel to support it. Here are graphs at 9 psi:




      The kit will be available for export and will be available for 91 octane fuel like what is available in California. The kits for 91 octane fuel will feature about one pound less boost, so 7 psi. Here is a rundown of the currently planned kit offerings and specs:

      Hardware:

      Rotrex C38-91 Kompressor (1100CFM)
      Self Contained Lubrication System with separate oil cooler
      High Tension Belt System with 270 DegC Belt Wrap
      Teflon Coated CNC Machined Billet Aluminium Bracket
      Teflon Coated CNC Machined Billet Aluminium Bracket Kompressor Bracket Housing*
      Teflon Coated CNC Machined Billet Aluminium Plenum with Optimised Velocity Stacks
      Teflon Coated CNC Machined Billet Aluminium Lower Bank 2 VANOS Cover
      Aluminium Crank and Water Pump Pulleys
      Evolve/ITG High Flow Foam Maxogen Filtration System
      8 x Bosch Motorsport Fuel Injectors
      Front Mount Air to Air Intercooler
      Boost Hoses
      Silicone Hoses
      Clamps
      Brackets

      Engine Management System:

      Calibration optimised both on dyno and road under various weather conditions

      Recalibrated MSS65 DME with optimized
      Fuel
      Ignition
      Torque Calculation
      CAM Timing

      Calibrations for 91(US)/95(EUR) + Octane Fuel

      Systems available:


      Non Intercooled 500-530HP System @ 5 PSI ---- Not Sure we want to release this yet! This is the one that needs the most amount of testing. Not happy releasing anything non intercooled.
      Air to Air Front Mount Intercooled 580-600 HP @ 7 PSI
      Air to Air Front Mount Intercooled 600-630 HP @ 8 PSI

      (Boost readings are taken at plenum)

      (Note – Power will vary and will be heavily dependant upon ambient temperatures as the S65 is very dependant upon combustion temperatures)

      *Reduces Stress on Tensioner Pulley and has a secondary function of protecting injury from belt


      Below are some additional pictures. Keep in mind the bracket is engineered from high grade 6082 aluminum that will additionally be coated with xylon/teflon. It will be able to handle all the rigors of supercharging without flexing whatsoever. There are no spacers used in the bracket.

      There is also no cutting required for the front mount intercooler.

      Expect more details in the coming weeks as the kits near completion for production.

        Man the fine mapping of this car is real real hard work!

        Spending hours and hours behind the wheel with foot planted is really killing us.

        Such is life... sigh....

        I'll volunteer my time and efforts in driving while you remap the car... Click here to enlarge Let me know if that makes things a little easier.

        Hopefully we'll get some video updates in the next 24 hrs, just saw this over on E90 Post

        Sal@evolve:
        Need to get mind in gear and actually make a few videos on the dyno and road.
        It's been nothing but raining here recently.
        Even a stock M3 is useless in the rain let alone with a blower.
        Today the weather is dry.

        Bastard thing nearly killed me today. Ran out of talent!

        Think I better reduce that instant power delivery a little.

        Imran is working on some videos. I shall continue my unfortunate job of driving it everyday and ironing out the smallest imperfections in the mapping. I doubt anyone would even notice what I am noticing but with Alex getting more and more anal you never know! Click here to enlarge

        Haha...yeah that's right! If I'm ever fortunate enough to get my hands on one your supercharger kits, you be believe I am going to nit pick every minute detail.

        In all seriousness though, this is one develops a perfect product by repetitive testing and making sure everything meets your standard. You guys did it with the E46 M3 Tune, I imagine the same will happen with this.

        I can't wait to hear how things turn out once clients get a hold of this.

        $14,000 is fair and free shipping is a really nice touch! Rebate on the taxes... extra nice.

        Agreed! Looks like the pricing is set very similar to the other "650" kits out there.

        There's going to be some good competition for those looking for the higher horsepower kits!

        $14,000 is CHEAP considering the materials and parts used.

        If we used a cast aluminium plenum and laser cut brackets and took out all of the CNC machined parts it would be way cheaper.
