Supercharger question?
I have a 320i 1995

and planing on S/C project for this sumer .. just to see how much power i can get from a 2L straight six ..maybee nothig well i will see lol

So my question is : What turbine should be use on a small 6 like that ?

if anyone got good source im looking for new or rebuild or use .. looking in to 8 - 9 or maybe 10psi if possible !

and also a braket to hold the s/c in place ? and anything thats can related to this built ?!! anyway all help is welcome !!

thanks !

i would probably direct a question like this to a company who deals and fabricates S/C's as its rare to see 320's S/C'ed im not sure of certain data.

Looking at average kits for 325 and M3, you get around 60% gain on 7psi systems. So somewhere around 310hp at the flywheel.

Id go with a same kit that they sell for 2.5 - 3.2 Everything would bolt up to your engine, but you will need to get custom software. Since USA never got 2.0l no one really has a kit for your engine.

You can run up 8 psi with not intercooler, anything after that you'll need some kind of cooling. With an RMS aftercooler setup you can run upto 12psi.

a turbine is a part of a jet engine/turbocharger that uses hot gases to spool a compressor up with...Superchargers dont have this...

for a 2L from centrifugal s/c u're looking at Vortech V1 or SQ, Paxton Novi 1000, smaller turbines...from eaton style, u're probably looking for a used supercharger from the GM 3.8L SC engine that went into GTP's

believe me, do your research....turbocharging is a whole lot easier and gains are higher

Souvrain 03-20-2007 12:54 AM

yeah but dont want to mess with turbo .. so s/c is perfect for me .. DIY project ... ASA as a s/c unit for small six so im looking for this anyway just looking around as i say

next motor will be turbo ...price wise for now i think is the s/c turbo are expensive at the end of the line

SC'ing is much easier, but yes turbo has better gains.

I think I talked to you before on msn about your car as i said dude dont waste your money on sc'ing a 320 not when you have 200,000 + miles on it, its simply aint worth it money down the poo pan, save it and put it towards an m3 or 325,328, sure I have a 320 with chip, zorst, induction kit, BBTB and UUC pulleys to come and its not too bad at all pulls strong in all gears.

lol man they are not cheap .. loll

but man i dont think im gona pass on the s/c because i want to put a s/c thats i could transfert later on a 3.0L its just to burn the 2.0L faster faster FASTER !! lol
