This M Coupe has around 36,000 miles and we did an Inspection II Service, replace VANOS unit, and installed a Stage 1 VF-Engineering Supercharger Kit. Car is bone stock.

This M coupe did not get a dyno prior to installation.

Here are VF-Engineerings' dyno charts.

The left one is HP with A/F ratio. The right one is torque with boost plot

Richard,

I didn't drive the car but Joe said it drove great. The kit took longer to install due to parts issues but very reliable. No check engine lights or driveability issues on the first 30 miles.

I doubt he might go. He lives all the way in Woodland Hills. He's also not very active on the boards but I'll send him an email.

BTW, Joe installed an AA Tuning/Hurtig Motorwerks Twinscrew supercharger kit on his 332ti. I'll tell him about the dyno day and see if he can make it.

X2 - I can't wait for the Stage 2 kit either. In conversation w. VF last week, the production date for the 530 / 330 is now the "end of the yr." :bawling:
On the bright side, the Stage 2 kit is supposed to put out approx. 400 ponies - e39 M5 territory :drive:
