The retail price for our kit is 12600 inc VAT. Yes it is on the more expensive side - this is due to the amount of CNC machined parts including the plenum, 8 rib pulleys, front mount air to air intercooler and the housed bracket design. The Rotrex Supercharger also provides a fuller boost curve than the Vortech Unit.

You can see more details here:

http://www.evolveyoure92m3.com/evolve-m3-supercharger/

Any supercharger is going to put more pressure/strain on the engine as you are applying some boost to it. Our customers generally run 6.7 PSI with a primary cat delete for around 600 BHP (Thats UK 600 BHP and not US 600 BHP).

We have recently completed a conversion for a guy who regularly goes to the Ring and puts in some decent times in his car. Am looking forward to see what he can do with the Evolve Supercharger.

That price includes fitting and pre and post dyno's by us.

We have a couple of kits coming into stock so can work out a deal if anyone is interested.

Well gents, as I didnt want to get into another PCP with a wedge of cash to find again after 4 years for an M4, the ESS VT625 intercooled supercharger has just been ordered for the ol gal !! Got a bit of discount as a repeat customer so kit will be on its way soon and will be fitted in January, ready for the spring trackday calendar. Be interesting to see if I can beat my 140 mph max speed approaching the bridge at Snetterton before standing on the brakes. Will keep you posted of build progress if anyones interested. Merry Christmas and happy new year to you all.

Aaron Reeve who owns A Reeve performance here in Norfolk is going to fit it. He also has a Maha dyno so we will be able to get some performance figures after fitting as well. Shes running 430 BHP at the mo with the Akra exhaust and ESS map so pretty quick already. The extra performance is evident mid range and top end from experience so looking forward to that. I had my last charger fitted by Simpsons who did a great job but are based in South Wales area so need someone closer to home. I did e mail Simpsons asking for a supply and fit price but they didn't come back to me. I must say my past experience with them has not been good on the communications front, very bad at communicating with customers and returning calls so they have lost out on this job ! I have ordered the kit directly from ESS and got a returning customer discount so with the VAT and customs duty the kit will cost around 7500 fitted, not too bad for a 625 BHP car !!

I know that this is a bit boring but what does the mod do to your insurance premium, surely it most go through the roof.
