Looking for a supercharger + info

Alright, I bought my M3 and i think i am going to be supercharging it.

What, if any, supercharger kits would be best suited for this beast?

Do you know anyone with one for sale?

Honestly, if you have the money, pick up a twin screw. Both AA and Eurosport make twin screw kits for the M3. You can thank me after the first time you floor it.

I think the twin screw goes for about $8000. I sounds sick and has instant power.

Well, speaking strictly numbers, the eurosport makes about 30rwhp more then the AA stg 2. Although appearently the AA makes power a little earlier.

I've followed the development of this blower for a very long time now. It's been tested hard, at long track events for example. One guy with an ZM3 has already logged countless miles and has yet to have an issue. There is also talk of a 2.3L compressor for stage 2 versus the 1.7L for more power.

I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with either one right now, and they're both on sale. You're looking at about $8500CDN plus install right now.
