Just a quick video from the local dyno the other day. My buddy ran his 1jz Supra and I ran the M3 for the first time.

Nothing too special, but a fun first dyno run for the 2 of us.

My set up currently includes the a couple of the core components of Milan/Fabio's old LSB M3:
Vortech V1, RMS aftercooler, 42s, Porsche 803, AA tune, 6"/3.33" pulleys, etc.

Numbers were quite low for the 2 cars, but the curves look good and I'm happy with the tune.

Are you running the same motor out of milan's car? Or did you swap the components over to the new s52?

I'm sure the car is capable of a lot more than 300rwhp, but, 300rwhp is really nice power in a e36.

Swapped the blower, aftercooler, intake, s/c pulley...I think that's it. The rest is new/different.

I think a combination of a hot day, a really low-reading dyno, and some heat soak accounted for ~50hp difference from similar setups.

you're also using a Mustang Dyno, they normally show a lower number beause the dyno works slightly different than a DynoJet, when Fab last dynoed the S/C E36 M3 it was on a DynoJet, and ran 327rwhp on that cold winter day.

How bad are SC's on longevity of the engine and general reliability?

General Reliability = just dandy...IMO the set up is only as good as the installer. BMW SC systems are fairly rock solid these days.

Engine Longevity = slightly shorter given that more power = more stress. But really, normal maintenance will take you plenty far.

The supercharger itself normally calls for a rebuild around every 50k or so. Replace the belt at a similar interval.

FI S52s = the shiznit

COMPLETELY different car now!


In other news, I believe I had some belt slip happening at the dyno and should be back above the 350whp range now. *th-up*

+1...Lucky for us the SC tunes on the market these days are relatively tried, tested and true.
