Help Needed: E46 Non-M Supercharger Kit on a E36 M3

I picked up a non-M C30 Active Auto supercharger kit for an excellent deal. (The charger is in need of a rebuild)

My question is, what parts will I need to make this work with my car?

I'm assuming that obvious things like:

IC Piping

Will not work with my car. However, what about injectors? From some limited research I'm lead to believe the bracket will in fact work.

I'm looking for any additional input here to educate myself more on this swap. On a separate note I'm curious what the difference will be between this and a C38 on an S52, since as you all know the S52 kit came with a C38.

Thanks in advance!

You could ask Active Auto...

If you're sure the bracket will fit, the pulley might work, too. You'll need a crank pulley and belt. You could source some silicone hoses for IC piping, but the tune is going to be the hard part.
