I'm being a bit premature in posting this now, but my car took a trip over to Motronix Motorsports today to get a blower and aftercooler installed and I'm overly excited! Since I last spoke with dave, he was still fitting a few things, and will call me in a few hours from now to let me know when everything is complete.
I'm so excited, yet I have no idea what to expect when I first take it out for a test drive. All I can say is, expect a full review tonight, as well as possible video footage (if there is still sunlight).

until then....I must continue to wait :(
(waiting sucks!!!! :D)

Call up Jon (e46lover). Supposedly him and randy are going to meet up with a few guys tonight. I think I'm going to show as well once I find out where.

Oh btw, i'm leaving right now to go pickup the sleeper :D

DJ: You are officially excused from missing today's meet.

Getting a blow is better than meet/cruise in my book.

Congrats

Okay guys, here's the scoop. I need different size pulleys so as of right now, I'm not getting full potential from the supercharger kit. Dave suspects I'm running anywhere from 4 to 5 psi right now which isn't much considering I want to push 8 or 9psi, but oooooh man does it ever sound and feel sooo sweet!
I can't be for certain right now, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that as the car is right now, it can probably beat an M3. There's just soooo much torque now it's kinda nuts!
Jon (e46lover) took some video footage today when a few of us met up tonight. I can't wait to see it! (UPLOAD IT QUICKLY JON!)

After my car goes back into the shop for it's new pulleys, software, and other tweaks, I'll post the full review. For now, look out for stock looking silver e36's that could potentially smoke you :D

Ok Adam, now if you don't mind my asking, for my future reference, how much did this setup cost you from start to finish?

djcontra
08-03-2003, 05:16 PM
SuperM3: thanks! I know what you mean about the sound :)

Lennon: this setup so far has cost me $5500 which isn't too bad. I suspect it will cost me another $1000 to $2000 to get things the way I want them...right now it doesn't look pretty enough for me :)

how much are you pulling on the wheels? *th-up*

djcontra

crusher: I have no idea. I'm not going to bother dyno testing until the kit is completed. So far I have on my shopping list 2 new pulleys, 1 Custom ECU Chip (by Mark D), and 1 new intercooler/aftercooler. I will probably be getting the pulleys for free, but I gotta save up some more bucks for the custom aftercooler.
When all of it's installed, the car will be extensively dyno tested (I assume) when Mark is desiging the chip for the car, so I should have some nice charts at that time.

As requested, I've put up a short video of the supercharger.
For some reason, my camera didn't record much bass, so it doesn't sound anything like how it does in person :(
Please keep an open mind, the kit only looks like this because it's a work in progress. Many things will be changed, shifted around, or redone when I'm ready to put on the body kit. For now, it's not too pretty, but I don't care :)

Nice, I can't wait to see what the dyno says once it's all set up properly. Any guess on 0 to 100kph time?

thanks again everyone! *th-up*

I'm not sure what my 0-60 times are yet, but I might test it with my camera one night this week. I'll have it filming the speedometer with the timer going, and we'll do the math :)

Gladdo, I'll swing by for sure sometime for a race then a session, but I'd like to race you again after everything is complete, because as it stands now, I'm not sure if I'd beat an e46m3. I'm pretty confident my car can beat an e36m3 as it is now though.

Wannabe: I put the licence plate cover there just because people kept asking "wtf was wrong with your bumper", "why is it all cut up, and deformed looking?" Now they know why :D

I want to take a better video tonight (if it doesn't rain) to capture the true sound of the beast. Expect something soon this week if not tonight.

How much are you asking for the loft? I was thinking of maybe buying a house soon but the loft you have is pretty sick ;)

Adam: Congrats on the SC, hopefully i'll have a chance to check it out before you store the car ;)
