    (VID) Finally Boosted! E92 M3 Gintani Stage 2+ Supercharger In Action

    I'm finally boosted! I have been driving the car for a week, and have done quite a bit of spirited driving, the car is SCARY FAST! I couldn't be more happier with the results. Click here to enlarge The Customer service from everyone at Gintani is fantastic, they really took care of me, and kept me informed through the entire install process. Alex, Arno, Josh, and G were just as excited as I was, the are quality people who understand what enthusiasts want out of their BMW's, THANK YOU!

    The pictures I've seen of the kit don't quite do it justice, I must say the hardware is top notch, well built, well crafted, and the fitment is fantastic, they flat out did an amazing job.

    A few of the pluses I like about the kit is they choose to utilize and 8 Rib pulley and a Crank pulley that is independent of the accessories. The charge cooler is massive, the PCV pieces are extremely well built. They also built me a custom W/M tank located in the trunk, with a level sensor, and they installed gauges for me, along with a CF gauge pod, and they took the time to relocate the cigarette lighter, talk about CS!

    I went with the Stage 2+, the "+" meaning 1psi more than Stage 2, it's at 7.5psi, with the addition of a WM kit. Eventually I will go with 8.5psi, and a retune. Click here to enlarge The car drives just like stock, no hiccups, fast DCT shifts, great daily drivability as well, even more important the car has performed from day one.

    Here's a vid that does a better job at explaining/showing what the car has been able to achieve and there's some exclusive footage at the end. Click here to enlarge Enjoy!

    Congrats brotha!!!!

    The vid, everything from it's content, music, and the way it was put together is superb. Has the feel of a trailer to a action packed movie, pun intended. Looking forward to more vids, runs, reviews and fun times!

    The kit looks amazing! The cooler in the mani is huge, and so is the heat exchanger.

    You running dual nozzles for the meth? What size are they?

    I have a question Drew maybe Niterider can answer also. I saw Niteriders dynojet he posted with 5 psi of boost at 506 whp and 348 wtq. How is it that your car on a dynojet running 2.5 more psi and a meth kit is making the same power as his ? Seems like with 2.5 more psi and meth your car should make an easy 50-60 more whp than his car ?? Also I notice looking at all the dynos the Gintani kit seems to make max power at about 7400 - 7500 RPM then go flat. Can you post up your Dynojet files so we can see your power curve, boost, AFR's etc.. ???

    Thanks
