    • Active Autowerke E9X M3 S65 V8 Generation 2 Level III supercharge dyno - 589 wheel horsepower at 9.5 psi

      Active Autowerke continues to update their E9X M3 supercharger kits and what you see here is the latest Generation II Level III setup. This updated kit features a Rotrex C38-92 supercharger pushing 9.5 psi on the stock internals with methanol injection and HKS iridium spark plugs. The result is 589.4 wheel horsepower and 378 pound-feet of wheel torque in SAE correction with 0 smoothing. The curve is jaw-dropping buttery smooth.


      Active Autowerke has tested this blower up to 11 psi on the S65 V8's stock internals which the motor held without issue. Pricing on this kit is to be announced but the offering as stands currently is as follows:


      • Level 1 6 psi 575 kit inc intercooler | $10,800
      • Level 2 8 psi 640 kit inc intercooler | $12,800
      • Level 3 9.5 psi 675 kit inc Meth | TBA


      Nicely done Active, dyno video below.

        Yes 0! If you haven't noticed yet we do not like smoothing out the curve. We should have level 2 dyno jet's for you soon.

        This will feel the same with even more consistent torque and hp above 5k.

        ^Edit - It should be called a line I guess instead of a curve. Click here to enlarge

        I don't think a better S65 supercharged curve has ever been posted.

        This seems to be the case with most BMW engines. People like to make claims to what engines can and can not take without s stitch of testing. KOODOS to AA!

        Exactly, the S54 was supposedly made out of glass early on.

        Exactly! After Bmw made some changes it turned into a monster.

        Is AA still working on that low-compression S65/Rotrex kit?? Assume the project got put on hold to focus on the Gen 2 stock motor kit update
