    Any info on these twin screw e39 m5's? It was my understanding that no one has done a single throttle body conversion on the s62.

    Hope it doesn't still look like something bought out of Home Depot...

    But what sort of intake manifold is that, does it involve intercooling (water/air)

    I saw this unit from "MattMc1" over @ BimmerForums:

    Buckhead Imports Performance Stage 2 RMS supercharged E39 M5 goes 11.7@122 in the 1/4 mile - Dynos 525 wheel horsepower

    Very nice results for this RMS Stage 2 supercharged E39 M5 that belongs to Buckhead Imports Performance. The vehicle dyno'd an impressive 535 wheel horsepower on a Dyno Dynamics and ran the 1/4 mile in 11.7@122. We must say it is very nice to finally see some positive results with RMS built/tuned hardware on the E39 M5. This supercharger kit will eventually be on sale to the public and we will bring you more details then as this is a promising start. Enjoy the pictures and video below.

    Hey Chris,What is the bronze/brass thin on the main supercharger bracket? Also, what tools do you use to do CFD/flow testing of the new intake, if any?

    He's so close to breaking the record. Isn't it 11.71 set by the ESS car @ MIR? He surely has the power to beat it eventually

    He is a hundredth behind the ESS car.

    That brass piece is a slide style belt tensioner.

    We have not done any flow testing on this manifold yet. We are still compiling all the data and we will publish it soon. I do know that the manifold will not be the limiting factor of this kit. We have an M5 here running a V7 YSi at full capacity and the only limiting factor right now is the blower.

    Keep in mind, this was Jason's first time at the drag strip with this car. This car has some much quicker times in it. Notice all the wheel spin in the video. With a proper tire/suspension setup this car can run way faster in the 1/4.

    Well, hopefully each cylinder is getting the same amount of air.

    The manifold was designed to have equal distribution across all 8 runners. Like I said, we are still in the testing stage.

    Why is the blower the limited factor?

    I'm still apprehensive about the YSI due to belt slipping issues. I want a procharger so bad...

    The blower is being over spun at the moment.

    If it is being over-spun on the S62 that isn't a good sign for S65's. The thing si the E39 M5 engine bay can likely accommodate a bigger blower.

    What are you planning to do?

    How much is it being over spun?

    We are still testing the system. We will not be sending this car home at that power level. We will lower the boost and send it on it's merry way.

    I do think the S62 engine bay can handle a much larger blower. We have also been looking into procharger for higher HP SC setups. The step up ratio on their F1-C blower is fantastic.

    Exactly what I was thinking. That or F1-R which has the same step up I believe but the F1-C spins faster. I'm guessing the max RPM is important on these higher revving motors?

    Buckhead is serious business... known Tony over there for a few years now. Glad that he is continuing his tuning success with them. He actually tuned my 1st BMW for me Click here to enlarge
