Used RMS kit?

I have a buddy whos interested in getting an RMS Stage 1 from someone, he cant use the guys software but it comes with a few extras. I was wondering, whats a good price for a used kit from a CDN seller? Iwas told about 3700cdn, I mean on BF.C they go pretty cheap no? What do you guys think? Also...do you need a euro HFM to run the kit? Will a 2.5 benefit from having one at 8psi on a v1/v2? If i ran 38lb injectors, and the euro HFM, how does this work because I know I dont think 8psi will be enough to make use of those? Can someone help me out with this?

If you cant get the software, its useless. Can he get it from RMS.
I would never deal with RMS/Osh, way to many horror stories.

Make sure the blower unit is in good condition. There have been many reported cases of Vortech blowers leaking oil and requiring a rebuild. Even when they are rebuilt, make sure the seals are all proper w/no leaks visible. Software isn't a problem. Anything under $4g is good.

Theoretically, the 2.5 with 8psi could definitely benefit from the 3.5" HFM. I mean think about it, that will be pushing much more air than the 3.2L motors that benefit so much from it.

The injectors are overkill, but you can use them fine.

SW is not easy to develop, getting it done to work properly can be problamatic. The manufacturer has already gone through the trouble of tuning it.

Thanks Mods and Stalker...software isnt that much of a problem as I learned, maybe a Tec3 standalone unit might be in favour.

Yea, Randy I heard about those as well...there is one kit local and one kit in Calgary, its actually a sponser of tunerworks I think. The kit this car came off of is a 343rwhp cabrio, I think some of you know what Im talking about.

Also, since both kits are RMS..is my only cooling option aftercooler from RMS (or buy the vortech aftercooler unit and build piping?) or can I use an intercooler? What about both? The heat we're experiencing now, is really shit..and next summer when I can actually make use of it will I even benefit without a source of cooling the charge? Id really hate to spend all this money and have to spend more just to bring slight happiness.

My other option is turbo, although I'm bummed on quite of a few things, like oil supply to the turbo..would I have it tapped from the oil pan (more install cost) use the euro oil filter housing? The way my car looks without the bumper would puzzle me for piping for the turbo intake and piping to the intercooler. Im considering this, because over all the cost might be the same if I go custom, or maybe less.

So the pros and cons make my decision very complicated, Ive been thinking about this for a few months now..its been about 8 months of owning the car and during this winter I decided to cut the crap, and just start off with FI and build it up from there..rather than the usual useless (IMO) chip, intake, exhaust, headers, which will all be changed once I do go FI.

Remember, Im not looking for more than an E46 M3 puller for now, or at least hang with them...also for daily driving, I hate my cars power sometimes...the E30 felt faster!

Right now, Im DEAD even with SUPERCHARGED's car...it is a 98 328is, M50 manifold, carbonio intake, UUC System U exhaust, stock 2.93 diff, and 18" CSL reps...thats from 40-100 and from 80-180. Even then, the car may be fast...but its not at its highest fun factor. I have fan delete, no AC, and im starting to think a chip..how else can this be?

Im not looking to go all out, but im looking for the best path..in terms of simplicity, but yet upgradabilty. I always hear about S/C owners complaining about power, but I like the smooth powerband..but Randy giving me a ride in James' AA turbo M3, even though it was like 2 years ago...changed my life lol.

Can anyone shed some light on these questions? Thanks guys

Jon, 3700cnd for stage I kit, it absolute maximum you should pay. I wouldn't even go over 3500 myself for stage I especially without software.

343rwhp on Stage I is kinda high. On how much boost was it? Any other mods?

With Stage I RMS and Dinan kits your only bolt-on solution is RMS aftercooler. You can buy it from RMS, or on bf.c in FS section, I see them from time to time.
I wouldnt recomend trying to make piping for aftercooler yourself, it a bit complicated.

BTW Jon, with vortech you also have to tap in somewhere for the oil line.
