    • 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.

        Either because the customer didn't want it or because it isn't done yet.

        Because the red manifold was powdercoated while the blue one was painted

        Do you offer your mani in the symbolic AA lime green? Combine with a white AA symbl and it would look awesome.

        He is referring to how the car will continue to pull once you lift off the throttle under boost. It has to do with the recirculating BOV system that ESS uses. Whereas the AA kit doesnt have that problem.

        They do complain they are just told this is a normal thing and they all do it. This is simply false information as our kit does not do it hence the 3 Bov's we use.
