Default ▀▄ eas | Orange Fever's VF620 Supercharged E90 M3 hits the streets!

Orange Fever's E90 M3 is the latest VF620 install to hit the streets. Being a daily driver at 70K miles, the output on the dyno was a bit low on the hp side. While performing a VIN check, we discovered the necessary Updates were not yet performed, contributing to the DCT lag plaguing the early >09 DCT builds.

As a necessary precaution performed on all VF builds, the software is brought up to date before beginning work. This particular M3's ISTA/P version was brought up to 2.45, correcting the DCT lag and bringing all other modules up to date. A joyful side effect was a +23HP bump on the power side, just from updating.

Studio shots:










Modifications:
- VF620 Supercharger System w/ custom Orange paint by C&C Collision
- Vorsteiner Matte Carbon GT3 Front Bumper
- Vorsteiner Matte Carbon Diffuser
- Vorsteiner Matte Carbon Trunk
- Vorsteiner SS Axleback Exhaust System
- LCI Taillight Conversion
- Tanabe Springs/EDC Dampeners
- 20" Radenergie R7 Wheels
- Macht Schnell Competition Stud Conversion (75mm)
- Macht Schnell Competition Spacers
- STM Huper Optik 40-50% Film, including front windshield

Enjoy!

Paint looks incredible for 70k miles. Wet sanded? Nice power numbers too

That is officially my favorite color for the VF620 manifold!

Very interesting finding regarding the DME update. Is there any easy way to find out what version I have on my 2009 E90 M3?

Unfortunately, not at the moment with any equipment on the home market.

The VIN check did not show any visits to the dealership which involved programming/updating other than the 1200mi service. Since the M3 was getting supercharged anyway - I felt it would be a good exercise to verify, since the MY08 models didn't usually baseline as high as newer M3 models.

On another note, this does make one wonder if HP claims were incorrectly contributed to other aftermarket "upgrades" or flash tunes in the M3's early days.

70k miles Interested in seeing how long these motors last. Since I'll be picking one up when we have kids in a couple years.

It's a shame that the car has to drive around with the hood closed - that engine bay is all business.

You accidentally used the "pre ISTA update" as the baseline for supercharged results when you should have used the ISTA 2.45 graph instead (RunFile_015).

I made note of this in the Dyno Database entry.
http://bmw.pencilgeek.org/showDyno.php?recID=494
http://bmw.pencilgeek.org/showDyno.php?recID=495

Let me know if you correct the graph and I'll remove the note from the Dyno Database and replace the graphs with the new one.

70K is among the higher mileage cars we've seen. Expect to see this E90 M3 blasting around the track @ MFest.
