Cool. So what's the differential pressure loss you're experiencing with the intercooler?

Also, do you have a compressor map for the C30-74? Post it here if you can.

There's a BMW tuner down in Florida that installs twin superchargers. Did you ship your car down there for the install?

Also, I thought one adds twin chargers to get insane boost? What do you gain by putting two chargers in instead of one, when you consider that the boost is a healthy ~8 pounds, but nowhere near 20+ lbs? Do you get less lag/drag?

Is that a sign of desire or approval on your part Mal? I thought you hated mods but the M6 side mirrors.
