What they are saying is that it is the same blower as in their e46 m3 kit which is capable of 500hp.

Congrats on finally getting it all together and installed. It must have been killing you you to have the kit installed and waiting for the ECU to come in!

From what you've told me it sounds like a wonderful/powerful kit! dont get in to too much trouble with it!

Why does 1:1 matter? The wheel speed is still reduced by the differential ratio, which is different on many models.

Basically as long as the car doesn't peel out on the dyno drum it doesn't matter what gear the car is in. There is a pulse sensor attached to the engine which tells the dyno what the engine rpm. Dyno will calculate the proper tq reading regardless of gearing or tire circumference.

sorry vlad rms isnt the big dog in centrifugal anymore j/k

i think AA is starting to understand they need to go bigger to compete thus why the c38 is being introduced and will be used for the stage 2

ive already been told that anyone with stage 1 will get a very humble discount on the swap

I dont think RMS is the reason to be honest. When was the last time you heard someone bout RMS charger? I think RMS ruined their reputation for good.
I think Technic Tuning turbo kit is the reason.
