I rode on track in a red Z3Mcoupe with a Eurosport blower on it. It had just over 400hp and the driver made terrifyingly good use of it.

I also met a guy at an autocross once that had his daily driver ZHP sedan that was 100% stock EXCEPT the he had the same supercharger. Sounded like a mouse fart out on course with the stock exhaust, but it was damn fast.

I was all worked up about them for a while until I realized the Eurosports are like $9k without installation. I've heard a centrifugal blower produces a pretty disappointing power band and isn't worth the $5k and hassle for the quality of the end results.

Thats when I decided to keep my car N/A.

That software seems interesting, it would give you the capability to easily do your own diagnostics, might come in super handy when you're trying to find that *one thing* that will inevitably not be hooked up after the first time you start her up with the new motor.
