Because the customer requested that no information be revealed or discussed, he had good reason as he wanted his engine covered by BMW.

-No bent valves or damage from valves making contact with top of piston (over-rev)
Also noted that it was a very early production M3, and that being said, there has been a significant amount of engine's in the "earlier" M3's that have had oil starvation, rod bearing failure, and other known issues. With that being said, and no evidence of a faulty tune or any damage that could possibly be caused by the supercharger kit its self, there really isn't any viable information that would lead you to think that there was an issue or problem caused by Active's product.
Now I can agree that Active probably should have said more, since IMO its fair game after their own guys (was a shop that owned the M3) posted the initial thread that got so much attention, but they were asked specifically by the owner to not discuss or speak of his situation, and since its in the past, they have not brought attention to old news and respond officially.
But I can comfortably stand by AA on this and say, that their kit has ALOT of quality R&D to ensure their customers make the most performance possible SAFELY!!! This kit has been pushed to the point where they feel comfortable in terms of longevity, and safety of his customers and their engines.
Speculation is the last thing they are concerned of in their minds, as their dealers, and themselves will gladly share any information you need as a potential buyer, and ensure you get exactly what you pay for!
