    Wait until you see the final product all Teflon coated and with a brand new C38-91 on there.

    As mentioned before, our dyno dynamics numbers are not the same as dynojet numbers.

    And, as many have mentioned, it's not all about dyno numbers as we all know how they change with CF's.

    I will be going through dyno testing for SC'd cars later.

    The car is quick.... very very quick. It is also incredibly smooth and ultra responsive. This is where the Rotrex shows it's colours. Response.

    I was out doing some exhaust testing on our development car running non intercooled @ 5 PSi. I got badly caught out going on the gas very hard. I am used to driving high power SC cars and was not expecting the immediacy with this blower vs a slower revving gear driven one.

    I always wondered how many exotic car companies and tuners could make incredible kits and power with the Rotrex blower, but not seen in the BMW community. That has clearly changed... Click here to enlarge
    Shoot man, AA has been using Rotrex for years.

    I think what Alex means is incredibly power in the BMW world from a Rotrex at this sort of power level. AA stuff was only (only he says!) around 500hp. The man is a die hard E46 fan and knows all about the supercharger options of old and new.

    Yeah, definitely true! I just personally haven't seen many BMWs achieving this power with the Rotrex supercharger from a full production kit. I don't think there are too many E46 M3's running the C38-91. The one's I have heard of are custom upgrades based off AA's previous kits. Those few cars are definitely making nice power on the S54B32.

    I am personally just happy to see Evolve trying out a different avenue compared to the Vortech, HKS, and ASA superchargers.

    Die hard E46 M3 fan, I am! Click here to enlarge With the great success that exotic cars have had with this unit, it really does makes me rather curious why others have not given it a shot on the S65.

    There is actually a reason why which will be explained later and it's got nothing to with CFM or power.

    Just some additional info as we have been asked about the Rotrex blower a few times now.

    Rotrex is used on the following:

    Novitec Rosso Ferrari 360 Supersport 606HP (Twin C30-94)
    Novitec Rosso Ferrari 430 Evoluzione 707HP (Twin C30-94)
    Novitec Rosso Ferrari 430 Scuderia 747HP (C38-81)
    Novitec Rosso Ferari 430 Supersport 707HP (C38-81)

    Koenigsegg CCX 806HP C38-81
    Koenigsegg CCXR 1018HP C38-81
    Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita 1018 HP C38-81

    RUF Porsche Boxster 430HP C38-71
    RUF Porsche Carrera 2-4 445HP C38-71
    RUF Porsche Carrera 2S-4S 465HP C38-71


    The Rotrex comes with a very good warranty and given we are underspinning it, it will be a very happy with the engine pushed to red line all day long.
    Wow, I've seen the Novitec 360 kit but assumed it was all custom, including the blower. It has a good reputation at the 8psi range in that motor.

    CF can be an option but you know how we are with carbon yes? Pre preg only! No overlay. So that means the CF option will be very very costly.

    Someone better start convincing us to use wet lay just for the 'looks' if you want CF airboxes.

    Just a small update.

    Would like to thank everyone who has been sending PM's and emails supporting the kit and appreciating the detail.

    Also had a few guys who make SC kits themselves call us and appreciate the kit. Not sure if they want to be named so I will keep that to myself. Nice to see the tuners appreciating each others work!

    It's nice to see other tuners show appreciation rather than try to discredit/attack. That is how it should be.
