eas | Duane's VF620 Supercharged M3 hits the streets!

Duane's 2009 Alpine White M3 has just the streets with the new VF620 Supercharger system.

A complete inspection process is performed before any work is performed, ensuring a clean bill of health before beginning any work. Afterwards, baseline testing on our in-house dynojet 224xlc is recorded to show specific gains after the kit is installed.

A full computer scan using the autologic tool is also performed, finding that this was never updated since delivered. Really not an issue, since we have everything we need in house. All needed updates were applied to both the DME and DCT computers before flashing with VF's VF620 Supercharger software.

While on the lift, a set of B&G Springs and Macht Schnell 10/15mm spacers were also installed to bring the M3 down to ground level, pushing the Vorsteiner V-106 wheels outwards to an much more aggressive stance.

Gauges will be installed next using Macht Schnell's Ashtray gauge pod to properly monitor engine vitals, while displaying boost levels.






Vehicle: 2009 BMW M3 Coupe
Transmission: DCT
Exhaust: Stock X-pipe/catalysts, "OEM" muffler mod
Fuel: 91 Octane

A peak 160hp gain can be seen transforming a simple everyday M3 into a power-hungry beast, while keeping power delivery within civil levels during city driving. Greater gains can be expected with a High-Flow exhaust system and higher octane fuel.

If you see this M3 in your rear view mirror, be sure to pull over to the slow lane.

Enjoy!
