    It really doesn't differ by much in terms of functionality, it was essentially a re-write of the Gen 1 from scratch to remove the known bugs from the Gen 1. But the Gen 1 is discontinued.. no longer in production so I imagine HPF will have to adapt their kits to run on the Gen 2.

    The Gen 2 EMS is significantly faster than the Gen 1 and has a lot more capability. When we do switch EMS's on the E46 M3 platform, it will be to the AEM Infinity but that may not be until late next year.

    I am curious to see how it does compared to a QSV on the same size turbo. Any guesses/predictions?

    Not sure. Never known anyone that ran a QSV. I'm a long time Nissan guy and even if the RB had a GT35R on it noone had a QSV. Seems that started in the Supra world. I think a more fair comparison for this application is how does the TS kit spool vs the ST kit from FFTEC? HPF is going to run a 6466 I think, so it should spool faster since it's TS and also make more power since it's a larger turbo than the flagship 6262 that FFTEC is using.

    To have the benefits of QSV you have to mate a twin scroll turbo to an undivided manifold, right?

    Thanks. I read somewhere that a QSV has negative effects if you use a divided turbo and i think it makes sense. With QSV and single scroll, you are just reducing the exhaust gas flow.

    The QSV uses a STANDARD undivded mani. The valve itself will divide the mani during low boost so the turbo will spool faster. The turbo HOUSING must be twin scroll. So, changing over to a QSV is more than just the cost of the valve. it is a fairly expensive ordeal with parts and labor. If you BUILD your turbo system right from the start with a QSV, then it is not so bad. it is CONVERTING after the fact that can get expensive. Not to mention a CUSTOM welded actuator must me made for any E46/S54 combination due to space constraints. The actuator must be CUT and WELDED so it will work with out binding or jamming on the firewall or any components in the engine bay. The above mentioned obstacle was given for the reason why a QSV could NEVER be done for our E46 turbo M3's. But as to the present, at least three renditions have been successfully accomplished with stunningly great results. The reason we are not seeing a lot more of these could have many reasons. One reason may be that the new PT 6766 scrolls so well that many owners are pleased with OUT a QSV. The other reason may be cost. it is fairly expensive to add/change on an existing turbo project.
