: VF supercharger or M3 swap

02-10-2008, 03:19 PM
1999 323is M52 2.5l 5 speed

VF supercharger 4500
M3 motor and tranny swap 3300 + big shipping say 700 call it 4000 for unknown engine.

VF supercharger around 280+ hp
M3 motor 240

only 6 psi is not much pressure on the system so not a huge issue there. i can do both installations myself. the supercharger kit prolly is a PITA to install since there isnt much engine bay space but obviously it can be done.

Installing a VF supercharger is really pretty easy. (I have one on my M3) I would check with AA and Technique Tuning if you are interested in forced induction. If I were to do it again, I would get an AA stage 2 C38 kit. or the TT stage 2.

Plus you really never know when buying a used engine... And, if you can find a S52 and trans for $3300, you are a better man than I...
