why dosnt AA make a turbo for a 92 bmw?



i was exploring the possibilities of an alternative to an m3 engine via an AA turbo system this winter, but found they only make one for a 93-95 325i

whats up with that?
sumthing to do with the non-vanos engines?

Paul from this board did a custom turbo for his 92 sedan. From what I hear it's a pretty good set up. I'm gonna see if I can find some pics.

AA does make a turbo for you. Call them and see.

The engine management is different. There is basically a non vanos. I had to drive all the way to Cali to supercharge my. If you want a supercharger I have all the hard ware for you.

Ah that means I know this guy.

Tong (don't know if I spelt it right), bring the car by Polycon so I can check it out man. Chong and Dustin told me you drove out to Cali for the kit but you haven't rolled by since.

Btw it's Richard, Harman's buddy with the white four door.

You were expecting AA to be giving away their turbo kits? You do get what you pay for though.

How else do you plan to get a 325 to run "only" 13.5? (M3 motor and a cam kit will cost you about the same)
