Well Project Blitzkrieg has begun, some of you may already know, but ive done a bit more to my car this year.
I spent the whole day at RMPmotors today, installing my brand new Active Autowerke Supercharger.

Before I talk about the experience I had with the car I have to talk about Rocco and RMPmotors... This garage is exactly what we BMW enthusiasts are looking for. I cannot express my gratitude and pleasure ive had dealing with RMP enough. Rocco took the whole day to make sure that the kit was installed properly, neatly and tuned perfectly, this is and was above and beyond the call of duty, and for the price I paid I feel that I got way more than my moneys worth and then some. all this while i was asking questions and talking the whole time!

Now for the car part...
driving it i was both scared and excited at the same time, i did not expect the car to feel and drive as fast as it does. I really can only sum it into one word.... WOW...

I would also like to thank Mark from RMP and a few other of RMP's friends for the help and advice,
also well Rendered, ital_325i, Geoff@BMW and slovaniaboy for sticking around for a while (slovaniaboy stayed until the end).

ill have better pics soon and a step by step writeup of what i remember, still lots i have to do to make the engine tiddy, but the SC is perfect! (sorry for the stick holding up my hood, i still dont have my hood shocks on the carbon fibre hood)

edit from Justin e36: here's a link to the video of this car moving, created by sloveniaboy: http://www.autosporttechnik.com/images/furious/rmptuned.wmv

It's my daily driver for now. I do a lot of driving for work, and a lot of stop and go, plus highway km's...

I would love a custom turbo kit.

how does the new supercharger sound? Is it loud? Oh god, I hope you made it back before the bad storm!

Mark, the car looks amazing... what gauges did you put in there? Did you get any other work done? The shop finished this install in one day, tuned and everything?... That's impressive.

I'd like to hear what kinda numbers you're putting down too... congratulations! I should've entered my car in bimmercruise last year.. no chance I'll win anything this year.. bah.

Furious
04-05-2006, 02:49 AM
for now ive only installed the boost and oil pressure gauge.. looking to get a few more, but doing some more research before i jump into it... and thats lies, your car has a very good chance of winning. i admire your setup. dyno runs hopefully soon.

04-05-2006, 03:01 AM
congrats Mark!! what a day man....it was worth the wait! The kit came together flawlessly and performs great!

glad to see RMP Motors is as agood as everyone says they are...can't say anything bad about Rocco....great guy, great shop, and the kit was installed in less than 6 hours.

Anyways, here is a quick vid I took from today....quality is garbage cuz I thought I was shooting at a higher rez than I actually was, anyways, enjoy!!

again, congrats Mark, and good stuff RMP.....only problem with going today was the pain knowing that my kit is sitting in my room just itching to be installed, DAMN YOU MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

04-05-2006, 03:11 AM
oh dude! thanks that video is great. (p.s-the gauges are in MPH for those who are saying.. "thats not fast.." )

it was a blast Rob, and thank god you were there because you kept me busy and out of roccos way hahaha.. i loved that part where i lost traction in 3rd it looks like.. lol first time driving the car after the install


still smiling. thanks again

Sloveniaboy - are you doing the install yourself? same one as Mark or...What did you pay for the kit alone or did you buy bits and pieces here and there then Ill have a rough idea how much to stuff in my matress until then:D

yeah stock headgasket, but thats why im not even gonna touch the boost yet.. i plan on putting in a new one and some studs this winter, as well as a small rebuild to give the motor a new set of legs.

very nice, I congratulate you, sir!


for this past month, me and a group of friend started up a turbo project for the integra and we have been fairyl busy fabricating all the stuff. and yesterday the engine fired up and went for test drive without bumper, just plain old intercooler on the front. we didnt have any boost gauge installed so we didnt know how many boost untill installed one, something over to 15 psi and it was making huge huge power. we got scared and lowered it right down to 7psi untill all other stuff go in. but the blow off valve sound is awsome.


for my car right know, im saving up for the da supercharger.
