    4.8 performance upgrades

    What's up with development for this engine? I've seen the G power supercharger (expensive) and a few exhausts (nice selection though). I've seen a few tunes that offer 10 HP but that's about it. I'm not even sure i've seen any intakes.

    Wasn't ESS coming out with a supercharger for this platform like they did for the E53 3.0?

    The motor you have is actually the better mod platform for far less money.
