Thanks for the quick response and the info. Yeah it is true I need to get an M3 first, and I wasn't going to turbo it the very min. I got it, it would have been a while for me to save up 9K as I'm a broke ass college student. Thanks agian.

I wanted to add this to the thread. As many have known for a long time RMS has always had good hardware but the software has always been seriously lacking. (as well as customer service)

http://www.rms-sucks.com/links.html

This is a compilation of complaints (mainly from m5 board members but it was posted in bimmerforums and I thought it should be shared here as well.

Hey, I just found this thread and have been looking around. I think 95RogueM3 is extreemly helpfull in answering everyones questions and he's extreemly fast. But reviewing the websites and boostlogic.com I was looking at their kit and it says:

"The details of the kit:
Boost Logic has started to develop turbo kits for the M50, S50, M52 and S52 BMW engines in E36 and E36/7 and /8 chassis. We feel that there can be huge improvements made in current available manifolds. The only offerings we have seen are cast manifolds that only fit smaller T3 and T4 on-center turbos."

That is right from the site, and on the first line it says they have a kit for S52 which is OBD II 96+ unless they mean it has an OBD I conversion which they did not state. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Good to see you found the FAQ.

The Boostlogic kit currently in production (there are 2 kits out...)

One is an s52 being currently built, but he is going with an AEM standalone system..so essentially he is negating the obd2 in his car.

The second kit is on an MRoadster, an employee of boostlogic, and I believe he is converted to OBD1 with a Greddy E-manage fuel system (kind of like an SMT-6 piggyback)

There are details about the kit being circulated on www.bimmerforums.com and their use of a tubular exhaust manifold is HUGE...and said by BL to possibly gain an extra 50+whp over a cast manifold.

As of right now I am kinda waiting to pass judgement on the kit..I think it will be very very nice when out in production kit form.

Any more questions..please dont hesitate to ask.

Thanks for the fast reply! So, as for the S52 kit they are basically making it for OBD I conversion engines then?

I'm not really big on the F/I forum in bf.c because I'm still learning and trying to understand how all of it works before I go posing in there too much. Because the guys in there know so much about it I'm afraid they flame me or somthing they always seem to get in aguments about stuff. But I personnally know a couple of the guys down at eurosport, and they have taught me alot but I don't live in UT anymore so I don't get to hang around there anymore.

(P.S. My sig pic is one from last time I was in UT when Ben had Byzanz and stuff, I have more.)

Technique Tuuning's Kit is said to be the best one out there (He built it to prove that AA's wasn't all it's made out to be.)

Sorry, I hate ressurrecting dead-threads, but i didn't want to create another topic on it.

I've read through all the posts, and I know that I shouldn't be planning out parts before I even own the car. I'm in the process of searching for an E36 M3, and I'm not set on a certain one at this time.

In the line of performance, what steps should I take to getting a Supercharger installed? As in, what parts should I replace before dropping the money on a supercharger? I see that I'll have to replace the clutch and flywheel with better ones, so what clutches and flywheels do you recommend? I've seen people mention new pulleys and such to give it better performance? I'm new to the world of F/I and upgrades, so be gentle with me :p

And a second question, I'd be looking to add about 6psi of boost (safe for stock engine, correct?), so does anyone have a particular supercharger to recommend??? I'm not looking to drop 8 grand on one either, so I'm looking for a balance between quality and price if at all possible.

Thanks for any information you can give me!

.Bill.

This will depend upon the state of whatever M3 you buy. A general list might include (above and beyond general maintenance items):

-New Suspension
-Cat-Back Exhaust

I personally have and love a Rogue Engineering LTW flywheel and clutch kit which has been tested to nearly 400rwtq, which is plenty for a CF supercharger kit.

The pulley they are talking about is the pulley that connects the supercharger to the crankshaft and which determines the speed at which the blower spins. The faster it spins, the more boost it will produce. However, as you say you want to limit yourself to 6psi, you should stick with the pulley provided in whichever kit you choose.

If you are looking for ~6psi (which is safe on the factory motor), while not spending too much look to:

~$4500-$5000
- www.aatuning.com
- www.vfengineering.com

~$6k,
Look to www.dinanbmw.com

All of the above kits will push very near to 6psi out of the box with no other modifications, and all will produce roughly 275rwhp. Personally, I would go with Dinan or VF, as their kits are upgradeable should you desire more boost, whereas the AA blower is nearly maxxed out (though still effiicient) at its 6psi.

Hope that helps.
