Default Another M3 Joins the HPF Turbo Family!

I am pleased to announce I recently joined the HPF family. I added the HPF Stage 2 Turbo Kit to my M3. The Kit came off of Jim Paks (ST06M3) car. As the Kit was pre-owned, this makes me HPFs first stepchild I guess. However, HPF has gone out of its way to ensure I have been fully welcomed into the HPF family.

I spent several weekends and several weeknights installing the Kit. HPF includes excellent and very detailed installation instructions. HPF clearly prepared its instructions in anticipation of DIY installs; kudos to them for doing this.

I am very impressed with the quality of the Kit parts and the design of the overall Kit. HPF did an excellent job designing its Kit to assimilate into our E46 M3s rather than be an obvious add-on. Along this line, I think they did a particularly good job utilizing OEM mounting points for almost all the components of its Kit.

Even more impressive than the Kits design, the quality of its individual components, how well the pieces mate with our cars, and the mind-numbing power the Kits generate on our M3s, is HPFs commitment to customer service and satisfaction. I cant say enough positive things about Chris Bergemann, David Nguyen and Josh Adams and HPF in that regard. HPF and its people are completely focused on making sure its customers are happy with its service and products.

This applies, as I was surprised and thrilled to learn, equally to direct purchasers of the HPF Turbo Kit as well as those fortunate enough to get a hold of a pre-owned Kit. From the great pricing on new parts, to the free flash of the AEM ECU, to allowing the original warranty on the Kit to be transferred with the Kit HPF is truly about satisfied and happy customers. I am pleased to count myself among HPFs very satisfied and happy customers - the treatment and consideration I received from HPF every step of the way was nothing short of stellar.

I also need to give props to Jim Pak and Goodspeed Performance in Chandler, Arizona. Jim gave me a great Kit at a very fair price and Goodspeed did a extraordinarily careful and meticulous job removing the Kit from Jims car. There is no doubt that Goodspeeds conscientious attention to all aspects of the removal served me well when I was installing the Kit on my car.

Cheers folks.

Ah, so that's why you sold the supercharger, headers and cats...

What does a used HPF kit go for. ballpark if you don't want to get specific...

Actually, the sale of the SC Kit was unrelated to the acquistion of the HPF Kit. Two separate and distinct events.

This seems to be an oft repeated theme. I'll tell you what, if I wasn't already FI and was still shopping, I'd definitely go HPF. You get the most power & the best customer service on the planet. And yeah, it does cost more, but if something is the best, why shouldn't it?

Nice

I was concerned for you Stephen when the SC came off, but now
couldn't be happier for you. It looks great. Can't wait to see some
times posted.
