ActiveAutowerke S54 HKS 1.5 Build Thread & Videos

I wanted to share with you some of the amazing work that Rocco has done with my car. I dropped off the car to him on Monday May 30th. I get a call from Lauren on Tuesday saying come and pick up the ECU - once I arrive, the old S54 engine was pulled, the new S54 engine dropped in with the supercharger kit. I shipped the ECU to Active on Tuesday and got It back from them on Friday. Rocco connected the ECU and started the car up and everything is running perfectly.

Here is what's been added to the car:

S54B32
JVT Headers with no cats
E46 M3 Cluster
Getrag 6speed Manual
M3 control arms and axles
3.62 LSD
KW V2
AA Level 1.5 HKS Kit
AEM Digital Boost & AFR Gauge
Apex ARC-8 18x9 all around (not mounted yet)

Here are some pictures of the build:

Box arrives from ActiveAutowerke:



HKS GTS8550



Level 2 Intercooler



Intake Manifold



Xmas came early!!



Old S54 out - New S54 in:
