Uncorrected:



Specs:
- 472whp/323 ft/lbs TQ (540/381 ft/lbs TQ crank)
- Vortech V3Si Compressor (capable of over 750+ hp), in exclusive VFE Ceramic Black finish
- 4.0-4.5psi manifold boost pressure (non-intercooled)

Full details can be found on our website:

VF Engineering - Supercharger System - E9X M3
https://www.europeanautosource.com/p...-system-e9x-m3

Another note: careful planning was taken in the R&D phase. The VF manifolds have a cassette-style provision in the rear for 1 of 2 heat exchangers used within the system:



In the VF540 kits, these are simply closed off with a block-off plate. When upgrading to the VF620 (intercooled) systems, the heat exchangers (Manifold and bumper mounted) are provided along with accompanying hardware.

Best part is - all hardware is retained and nothing is replaced, other than the pulley/belts, and software.
