    Review AA SC kit after a Year Plus

    ts been over Year now since i placed my order for my Active Stage 2 sc. I put the Sc kit on with about 43,000 miles on the car and was averaging about 15.8 mpg highway/city driving.


    performance mods on my car at the time.
    Fabspeed High flow cats
    Fabspeed x-pipe with resonators
    Fabspeed Maxflo exhaust.
    Ms Scoops
    Bmc Air filter
    Pc tune.
    The Car N/A was amazing felt good on the track and fast in a straight line. But a fellow Friend, many will know him as LostMarine would beat my ass with his RB setup 335i. So I ordered my kit and had it installed by Maximum Psi in New Jersey.My delta for the kit was 140-150 hp gain and 88-91 Tq gains ( picking the highest and Lowest dynos). These gains are with the mods stated above plus active sc.


    Performance Mods on my car now:
    Fabspeed x-pipe with resonators
    Turner Catless.
    Active Autowerke Sig Exhaust
    Active Green filter
    Ms Scoops
    Stoptech BBK




    After 21,000+ miles with the SC the car is running stronger than ever. I am averaging about 18.6 mpg Highway/ city driving with pushing it and driving like I did before the sc. I have been able to put some nice beat downs on some nice cars that would never expect a four door to beat them. At track (road courses) the car is amazing but at times i will have to ease in the pedal compared to mashing the pedal coming out of turns(when i was FBO). At Pocono i was able to hit 165 in the straight away but i had to brake hard in the braking zone.At the Drag strip the car ran on street tires an ET of 11.2.


    I only have issues with having the Active Sc is going through tires and gas faster because i always want to be in boost and hear the beautiful bov's. lol A problem that I encountered by Maximum psi was they left a stock bracket in that held some stock lines. When i was at Pocono Raceway my AC belt got ripped but by the bracket becoming loose due to the G's i was pulling in the turn and had a cel come up. A charge malfunction showed up and my battery wasn't charging because the belt was starting to rip up or was completely gone.




    The best thing about it was i went to my local Napa store and got my replacement belt. Then had my local bmw dealership install it, and also do a leak down test and compression test done. I wanted to see how my engine was after 6X,XXX thousand miles and 21,000+ plus miles of being sced and abused. Both test came back 100 percent perfect, a healthy engine. Click here to enlarge




    When ever i have had a question or thought i had a problem Karl, Rob and the rest of the Active team have always been their to help. I have never met or dealt with a company that cares for its customers and is always willing to help. Hope people on the fence about getting a SuperCharger it helps make life a little easier. It can be with any company you like but i just recommend AA because of my personal experience. Click here to enlarge

    Great review, thank you.

    Didn't you end up getting a larger blower?

    I love this car, currently more than mine due to boost, but we will rectify that shortly.

    you should have mentioned that your intentions were to originally go stroker, until someone informed you that its more expensive, with almost no real gain Click here to enlarge

    Yea i should have said it i might add it in. Yea i wanted to stay N/A for so long but then i realized that a certain someone was giving out misleading info. So i went on searching for a kit and landed with AA.

    thanks Bob...yes i am dct and its been strong as hell. A little history lesson for some people, i have wrecked 2 transmission one in my mom's honda odyssey when i was in high school and then my Acura TL. I though at one point my dct was going but then when steve drove my car he said it shifted better than his car. I have not noticed anything different about my dct feels normal and i don't have dct software like some of the other SC guys.

    I got better MPG after my Sc because of all the added power and added intercooler. A SC deff takes a little more power to run( now a days things are becoming very well engineered) but when you can drop the temp of the air going into your car versus regular air outside you become more efficient. You also get to cruising speed faster and dont need to go to redline as much. But when i did the comparison i drove like i did before the sc so i can get a true judgement. Trust me i didn't baby throttle at all to try and raise my mpg lol.
