Tin ... YOU are mostly correct about the Dinan Supercharger SC-3 Kit being Bolt-On and that Dinan will NOT Dive Into the internals of the M5 engine, (Unless you want their New Intake and Exhaust CAMS ... BUT ... As part of their SC-3 (Supercharger - 610hp) package they also add or include Headers, Larger Throttle Bodies, Different Tuned Velocity Stacks ... aka Trumpets, A New High Flow Ram-Air Intake, Dinan Stage 6 Software and the Free-Flow Exhaust System. They also include BUT probably does NOT directly add any Horsepower BUT will add Torque ... Is the Lighten Flywheel with a High Performance Clutch and the 3.45 Differential.
Dinan STRONGLY recommends that the Rear Subframe be reinforced due to the added torque of their Supercharger Package.
BTW ... Has anyone at CA-Auto mentioned why type of BOOST (PSI) they were looking at that would be omptimal for the M5 motor? What and where and HOW would they COOL things down in theri system?
Somehow ... Supercharging our motors doesn't really seem like a Do-It-Yourself on a sunny afternnoon type of "Bolt-On" modification!!
Just my .02
Yes, forgot to mention that Dinan's S3 requires the basics of the S2 to be inplace before putting on the supercharger+other bits. The rear diff, clutch, ecu mapping,headers/exhaust are pretty much fundamentals to their setup.
Roy mentioned that his twin rotrex kit ([email protected]
) is based on a stock s62 m5 engine setup, std clutch,exhaust,diff etc. Knowing that the m5 has problems normally with the std clutch. He does recommend an aftermarket clutch system such as Spec/UUC etc.
My car has pretty much all the basics inplace already, headers/clutch/brakes (all similar to BlackM5/Rob's LeMans M5), so that is reassuring already.
I think the boost levels for this kit are low (compared to others),haven't been given any firm figures, as it is still is very much under development.
4th June is all confirmed for a mini-meet with CA Automotive. Tin/Dave/Piers and possibly Peter so far.
cheers, you forgot yourself
