    • 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.

        Perfect intro pricing!

        If only Ranking up in the real world were as easy as it is in COD, Id have a reciept for this already..

        So....Evolve hit 124.58mph 1/4mi trap speed spinning through 1st, 2nd, and into 3rd on stock 19s. Click here to enlarge

        I think it's safe to say that with 18s, stickier street tires, and better launch, they may throw down one of the fastest trap speeds for street tires!

        Keep it up Evolve!!

        Santapod race way - UKIncline from start to finish is minimum 4 feet so it's uphill.Slip will be scanned and posted on Monday.Grip was a major issue. We asked an experienced Subaru driver his thoughts on the days surface - he said he was getting wheel spin aswell so we had no chance.Our tyre pressures were also factory.There is no question, we need drag radials!Tried to tone down the throttle mapping but there is only so much you can do.Our 60 foot time is appauling.Based on all of that, we are very happy with the result.The 0-100 mph time tested on the road is also very good.

        drop the tire pressure down to 24-26psi, you will get a little better traction without adding drag to the car.

        Well, that was our last chance for this year.

        60-130 runs being done this week coming if the weather is ok.

        Yes, 14k is very cheap. The standard MSRP seems about right, 14k is a steal. (assuming it puts down some killer/reliable performance, which it should!)

        Looking FW to seeing some results. You may force us to go back to the drag strip ;-)

        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.

        Here you go. Stock 19's, Conti SC3, Standard Pressures. First time on the strip in this car.

        Don't I know it. Traction was an issue. LOL

        Going to get some 18's and stickier tyres for next time.

        That's mid-11 second capable if you can get traction.

        I think a different tire/wheel combo is necessary to really take advantage of this power.....but realistically, it's better for real world comparison's sake to do testing on stock rubber. I think a 2.0-1.9 second 60ft is possible with a well prepared track....but street tires tear that up pretty fast...and the slick guys will hate you. Usually at my local track, we run street tires out of the groove intentionally so that the track doesn't get torn up.....

        Good luck with future testing....I guess VBOX times are next?

        Yes Vbox times are next. Hard to do it around here so will have to book some private airstrip time.

        Hopefully you guys can grab some 60-130 times!

        I can't wait until next year when someone in the States can run this setup down the track! This kit is begging for a proper track and weather conditions to show it's true potential!
