Florida-based BMW tuner Active Autowerke has been busy! I haven’t checked in for a while but when I did I saw that they’ve added a whole new level to their popular BMW E9X (E90, E92) M3 supercharger package. I meant that literally! There really is a whole new level, well “stage” rather. Their new Stage 2 supercharger kit for the E9X M3 is built around an HKS GTS-8550 centrifugal supercharger unit that is mounted with Active Autowerke’s own custom bracket which utilizes a dedicated belt drive design. You also get bigger injectors, custom software, and a beautifully designed Active Autowerke custom intake plenum with 8 velocity stacks built into it. When I say beautiful I mean it! These guys are artisans with a CNC machine. If you want the stage 2 kit it will set you back about $15,000. But hey, if you’re nice they may give you a deal. Call these guys up pronto!
Product summary from Active Autowerke:
The advanced design and sleek features of the Active Autowerke Supercharger System include a front mount air-to-air intercooler system with a separate oil cooler for the supercharger unit’s independent oil system. The Active Autowerke Supercharger Plenum replaces the factory air box and is designed to have an OEM-type look with custom finishes available at the customer’s request. The Active Autowerke Supercharger Plenum has been designed with eight high-flow velocity stacks, and large three inch intercooler piping to supply cooled air.
The custom Active Autowerke Filter mounts to the supercharger unit and is enclosed in a custom intake box engineered to incorporate factory design while forcing cool air to the air box. The optional methanol injection system assists in lowering intake air temperatures and prevents detonation.
The standard finish on the Active Autowerke Supercharger Plenum is a matte wrinkle black, custom colors are also available for an additional cost.
The Active Autowerke Supercharger System is powered by an HKS GTS8550 Supercharger Unit mounted with a custom CNC’ed bracket that uses a dedicated drive belt system, while eight high flow fuel injectors are used to supply the additional required fuel. Active Autowerke’s Performance Software, available for 91-93 octane, race gas, and octane levels unique to other countries, is carefully calibrated, and is at the heart of the system to provide an unparalleled driving experience.
