How much are you willing to spend... a full kit with intercooler is around 6000, you can go without an intercooler, or get an aftercooler.. many different variables, so it comes down to how much you wanna spend!

Like i mentioned earlier.. a full kit should be like 6000 canadian, but then you can add many items to increase the price... like pistons, rods, clutch, exhaust.... Let me ask another question... How much power do you want... do you wanna be FAST, or just have more power... if you wanna be fast, start looking at forged pistons, rods etc... if you want just more kick, then there are many kits available (ess- i believe is the cheapest)..

I will offer as much info as i can, just ask the questions... you should also get Randy in on this...

Gents, can I pick up on this theme and ask some advise. I have an E32 730 that I recently had fitted with a 735 engine. I am now looking for more power and want to find a supercharger kit for it. Has anyone come across one for a straight 6 engine? I’ve seen stuff by Vortech (as used by Dinan) but these are only for the V8’s.

Just to clear the air on the rest of the car The suspension has already been lowered, Alpina shocks have been fitted & It is stopped by 840ci Brembo’s. Now it just needs the extra horses to make it go.
