    EAS does a time lapse install video of a VF-Engineering VF420 supercharger kit on an E46 M3 S54

    We wish more installers did these types of videos showing the work that goes into the installation of a kit. The VF420 supercharger kit is a 4 psi, non-intercooled kit yet you can see it still takes a lot of time and effort to install even without the intercooler. No dyno numbers for this particular car have been released and we are interested in seeing what the basic VF kit puts down. The VF420 retails for $5,900 and is easily upgradeable to the higher horsepower level kits.

    A little bit, yes, as all the other options are available yet VF is still testing. I don't understand it personally.

    Here is the dyno. I wonder why EAS didn't post it? I saw them reading this thread earlier, odd:

    I was right on the money. Its about an 80whp increase. How much is the upgrade for cooling system to add more boosts?

    I think you can add more boost without the intercooler and then go even further by adding it, I'm not too sure. I'll let Tom@EAS handle that.

    Doesn't ESS also sell a kit at about the same price?

    I was going to post the video today in a separate thread, simply ran out of time yesterday. Dyno is from David's VF420 install, this kit can easily be upgraded to the VF480 or VF570 if more power is desired at a later date - which we'll likely be doing.

    Cost is the difference of the next level kit as if it was purchased outright for the upgraded parts.

    There we go, thanks. Everything after the 480 requires an intercooler I take it?

    Correct, the VF480 & VF570 both are intercooled, the VF420 is not.

    How have the Vf tunes been holding up these days? Didn't they change tuners or something like that?

    Yes, they have a new tuner and GIAC is not involved. Seems to be a good move, not sure if this tune for the kit is from GIAC or the new tuner.
