• Active Autowerke E9X M3 S65 V8 Generation 2 Level III supercharge dyno - 589 wheel horsepower at 9.5 psi

      Active Autowerke continues to update their E9X M3 supercharger kits and what you see here is the latest Generation II Level III setup. This updated kit features a Rotrex C38-92 supercharger pushing 9.5 psi on the stock internals with methanol injection and HKS iridium spark plugs. The result is 589.4 wheel horsepower and 378 pound-feet of wheel torque in SAE correction with 0 smoothing. The curve is jaw-dropping buttery smooth.


      Active Autowerke has tested this blower up to 11 psi on the S65 V8's stock internals which the motor held without issue. Pricing on this kit is to be announced but the offering as stands currently is as follows:


      • Level 1 6 psi 575 kit inc intercooler | $10,800
      • Level 2 8 psi 640 kit inc intercooler | $12,800
      • Level 3 9.5 psi 675 kit inc Meth | TBA


      Nicely done Active, dyno video below.

        Wait, the Level 3 is still stock internals? If so I guess I misunderstood.

        How much boost? Complete rundown of specs please I may promote this to the front page.

        Yes this is what it includes

        1) Meth
        2) HKS irridium spark plugs

        Does not meet emissions OBD2 readiness with the HKS irridium spark plugs.

        Besides the fact that there's another power increase on stock internals Click here to enlarge, this is gonna probably force the prices off all the kits to drop again if all the vendors want to remain competitive from a price perspective

        So far so good, we have been monitoring the engine very closely and have not found any signs of wear and tear. We will continue to beat our car up on and off the track for you guys. Remember we ran 11 psi for about 20-30 dyno runs testing the limits of the blower without a single issue.

        The S65 V8 is stronger than people realize.
