not much room in the engine bay with the M6's V10... maybe they can squeeze a turbo in the bay somewhere in the V8 models, but there is a reason why we have yet to see any decent turbo-tuned M5/6 cars around... and it comes down to engineering beyond eBay specials.

I'm going to have to fully disagree, my M6 is about to be twin-turbo'd and sitting in the 820whp range (faster than the G-Power - in all aspects), and has cost me slightly over $200k; $75K for the twin-turbo kit from ASR (no, it's not available yet.) and $35k on interior/exterior work. + $107k for the car itself. It will be one of the first in the world, and the last thing I'm waiting on is for ASR to finish testing. The interior/exterior work is already done, and I expect 100% completion by late March, early April.

If you know better then fair enough but is this kit actually coming to fruition? I understand a couple of M5 owners have been left slightly more than just disappointed?

Not that is really matters, but the eBay kit is for a V8 6 series, not our V10 engines.

TT

I do hope you haven`t handed over any hard earned yet?

Go G-Power or if you can wait a little longer ESS. Both companies have fought hard for their deserved reputation.

ESS' Supercharger is just finishing its testing (they are known for solid products and keep that reputation by their extensive testing before releasing to the public).

For the $75k you were planning to spend, you could get a Dinan Stroker and then add the ESS Supercharger and I'd gather you'd be real close to hitting your mark -- It's really hard to say without trying it. You could be in that combo for under $50k though and still have some money left over for headers and other tweaks.

the Dinan package by itself is $50k for stage 3..what would be a good choice of headers to go with?
Yes, the package is, but I was specifically talking about the engine. The rest is minor HP gains from bolt-ons and suspension/drivetrain stuff. I would, however, recommend the Dinan intakes, throttle bodies and some RPI scoops (intakes).

For headers, I like RPI or Agency Power but you will hear a lot of the folks here talking about Supersprint and Evosport too.
