Don't think we have seen this on the board ?

Reports to have 610 HP, 2 W/A Intercoolers (fittied inside airboxes)
uses two Rotrex C30-74's, very descrete fit.

AA is the US retailer for this kit (as far as my information tells)

I know the net price here in EU - and I can tell you its highly competetive. including electronics, breathing etc.

Some pictures (from a prototype I guess, modem killers !!) of technical character.

I might as well add before getting banned due to commercial message - this is not the setup I'am using or been involved with in any way.

with the exeption of using Rotrex chargers (I use C30-94's)

Interesting, but from the pics it is a little hard to tell what the overall setup really looks like. Of course I do no know a great deal about S/C conversions, but what is the anticipated cost? Lets see 610HP was measured in what way? I am assuming this is at the engine and not the wheels. What other mechanical OEM parts would need to be replaced in order for this to be a viable upgrade? Clutch comes to mind as well as the differential if the 610HP is at the rear wheels as opposed to the engine.

I would have set up a seperate fund for rear tires if I had this kind of HP.

I'am sorry I dont have much more information right now, Iam quite sure its engine HP we are talking about, since internals are unchanged. I'am sure AA will post more info for you M5'ers "over there" - as soon as they are officially releasing the kit.

I will have more pictures on the overall installation hopefully sometime soon.
