    Chill, I'm looking for it. Looks like I will need to take a day and drive down to the dealer to get a copy as I don't know where the hell I put it.

    Unless you would like to drive down for me?

    I fear I may be responsible for fueling this drama in a way. I was the one who asked the question about Sticky's car. The reason I asked is because another user had just posted that he "knew for a fact..." not one Gintani SC'd car had a failed motor. Cruising the forums, I had heard that something (I did not know what) had happened to Sticky's car and he had sold the supercharger. Now since this guy seemed to know ALL the facts on every Gintani SC'd car (question was really directed toward him, not PG- hence the quoted reply) - I thought he could shed light on whether or not the problem was associated with the SC. The question was earnest as I want to get into a SC in the very near future and reliability will far exceed performance on my priority list. So, sorry if I chambered the round Click here to enlarge

    Its a very legitimate question. If/when i have a e92 m3 and am looking at investing a huge chunk of cash on any thing that expensive i would definately want to know all the pro's and con's.

    Not a big deal, if you were a member here why not just ask me directly?

    I sold my SC as I am moving a bigger SC and built motor.

    No gintani car has failed.

    I think so, but I don't have a fix at my place. I'll try to have them fax it to a friend who then can hopefully scan it so then I can post it to prove whatever it is this is supposed to prove that doesn't even have anything to do with a Gintani supercharger. If they won't fax, then I'll drive. I'll call them as soon as they open.

    I knew I might need these in the future so I hid them somewhere but it seems I hid them too well.

    As you can tell, I haven't come here often and the topic just happened to come up on the other forum. You're right though, it's always better to hear it from the horse's mouth. Anyway, I'll be cruising here more often since I need to learn more about FI - plus I prefer the home page articles on this site.

    So, what do you mean by a "built motor?" Like a stroker? Is that because you think the stock motor won't handle the boost you're planning??

    A built motor does not have to a be stroker. Built usually means aftermarket internals, you can keep the same stroke. A stroker involves a new crank and different rods but is also considered a built motor.

    In my case, it is going to be a built low compression stroker motor. The stock motor can only take so much boost before detonating at 12.0:1. Dropping the compresison essentially let's you run more boost, you can accomplish this with lower compression pistons or a thicker headgasket. The right way is to do lower compression pistsons.

    I appreciate your comments on the home page, I put in a lot of work to make it interesting and not just regurgitated BMW press releases and bmwblog articles like the other site.

    Yep, exactly.
    How is the progress with getting the documentation? At least 1 of drama threads can have some proof to the talk.
