I installed the Dinan supercharger in my 96 328I. It was easy for me because Dinan is located here in CA. It was a bolt on app that took me 1 day, and that was taking my time and ensuring that everything was just right!
Within a month I had replaced the auto trans with a 6speed. Sweet!

The engine had 140k on it when I did the install, just passed 160K and performance is fantastic. No dyno results yet, but what I like about the dinan is the reliability is built into their products. So I run mine hard with confidence. Tires break loose in third and that is with a LSD.
Starting at 3500rpm power is on demand. If you have any specific questions let me know.

It all depends on how much power you want. The more power, more things will brake. The good thing about a e36 M3 is that there are alot of options to choose from. You can go from 300hp to 1000+hp, it all depends on what you feel comfortable with.

u have lots of options. it really all comes down to how much moeny r u willing to invest, rather spend on ur car. these engines handle boost extremely well. like someone mentioned above how much power u want is also something to take into consideration. not to mention what do u use the car for, ie track, DD, or weekend. for the most power thats upgradable a turbo system is the best bet. our transmisions can handle alot of power, to only weak spots on our cars r the front diff bolt, which AA makes a brace aswell as Mike Rawdoski(sp?), and the clutch. ur gonna want to take a ride in some FIed cars to finally make a choice. lots of people get a supercharger bc its the cheapest way to get into FI later to switch to turbo setup. it might cost u more up front but it will be cheaper in the end.

also not sure if ur a member at bimmerforums but they have a great FI section.
