hi guys

i think supercharged beemers are the best and i currently have one.

the car is running a vortech v1 t-trim supercharger.the motor has been stroked to 3.2l, it has a modified cylinder head with larger valves, custom inlet manifold system housing twelve injectors, reprofiled and ceramic coated pistons(86mm), shortened conrods, ceramic coated airbox, nowack ram feed air ducts, aftermarket cams, 72mm complete dual bore exhaust system, pipes, throttle bodies, dynamic stability control system, eibach adjustable coil suspension, upgraded breaking system, lightened flywheel, double disk tilt clutch, and a six speed short gearbox.

guys, the car makes 500hp on the wheels.the motor is an S50 motor.500hp is readily available at 1.2 bar boost and 730Nm torque @ 4500rpm.


i have ran a 11,99 second quarter mile at best @ 219km/h, 257km/h over the 800m, 279km/h over the 1km and 287km/h over the 1.3 km.

the car is very fast and relaible too.

i am currently starting another project were i will be running a T66 turbo and have major weight reduction done, to achieve in the low tens if posible and trying to make 1000hp.

another friend of mine makes 800hp on the wheels at just 1.2 bar boost and it was damn fast.

i happen to own the car webpage www.nitropower.co.za

check it out and i have highlighted all the converison onj my car.


here is a pics of my m3, the yellow one.

forgive me if I'm wrong, but I though the M3 motor was already a 3.2l to start with.

nice car and welcome to Max, lets all make a pilgrimage to Germany and South Africa to be apart of the experience. seriously would be nice, but $$$ age and would be a problem. Don't worry about language barrier, unlike U.S./N.A., almost every other country focres the people to lean atleast 2 languages - english being one.

Welcome to maX. Those numbers are very impressive for the S50. What compression ratio are you running now with the different pistons/rods? Also, I didn't read anything about an aftercooler/intercooler which is a must when you run 17psi, do you have one? Motor pics would be great!

hi guys

well, with the vortech supercharger setup, there are basically two different types of the supercharger available.

the the v1 setup, you dont need an intercooler, but with the v2 setup, it does require an intercooler.my m3, initially was fiited with the vortech v2 sc-trim supercharger which made about 400hp on the wheels.

i kept breaking the cog belt and my tuner then changed the unti to the more powerful t-trim unit, which too, can handle much higher boost.

the s50 motor on my car is the 3.0 l motor. in south africa, we received the 2 door m3 as a german spec model and it was onlt available on the market for three years. south africa was about the only country to have the m3 evolution come out in a four door. this was particularly due to the fact that when they launched the m3 evo, bmw s.a felt that the price was a bit stiff for the south african market and hence they just brough over the 3.2 s52 motors and had them fitted into the four door bodies, with the m3 kits kits of course.

i have a few pics here which i sourced from saracing and posted on the m3forum.com some time back.

here is a few.btw if any of you guys want to come over to s.a, let me know, i'd be more than happy to have you over as my guests and i will take you to the south african race tracks etc.


btw, as for the t66, well i currently have started on another m3 project, i'm looking at a 9 sec car.

will post some pics here soon too. guys please join my forum too and let us all know what you think of our south african car too.

the times were actualy not to bad seeing it was 36 degrees celsuis, and not one of the cars ran their best times, some were even a second of their best times and still running a 13.1, like the turbo 365 whp M42 whos best is a 12 flat, I am just glad the E30 is starting up in SA. We should meet up next time YOur racing or is in the pta region, drop me a PVT message next time YOur in pta*th-up*
