Active Autowerke M5 Twin Supercharger Insider

AA received an E39 M5 from someone in California for them to use on their development of a twin M5 supercharger. They are starting R&D next week and they will hopefully have a finalized product within several months...the total cost of the kit might be less than $15K...

Re: Active Autowerke M5 Twin Supercharger Insider

Twin supercharger setup?! So how does this setup work? Two smaller blowers better than one big one? What is the expected output?

That would be mine. We are hoping to get the time down to 6 weeks at 10k.
