eas | VF480 Supercharger Installation - E46 M3
 
Wanting to add more power to his 2006 M3, this customer came to our facility to have VF Engineering's VF480 supercharger system installed. VF Engineering chose to supercharge the E46 M3 to add to already superior throttle response and give wild mid-to-top end power with the centrifugal Vortech V3-SQ supercharger. Maintaining the original BMW quality, smoothness and reliability were all key factors in VF's design. By harnessing the reliability of Vortech superchargers, the quality of their custom software, their 15 years of supercharging experience and a worldwide OEM supply network, VF Engineering has created the ultimate supercharger system for the ultimate driver's car.

With an extra +133WHP and +50WTQ, the end result is an E46 M3 that has been woken up. The beauty of this kit is that the car still feels 100% stock when cruising on the highway or putting through the city, but give it some gas and you'll be pushed hard into your seat.
