• E46 M3 S54 forced induction comparison - Turbo vs. Supercharger - HPF vs. VF-Engineering

      This is a comparison between supercharging and turbocharging on the E46 M3 S54 motor. The video is about 40 minutes long so in depth is definitely an accurate characterization. Keep in mind this comparison is from HPF who does sell turbo kits. This types of comparisons are great to see especially with so much detail.

        Actually, a SC is much much more in line with the nature of an E46 M3. The E46 is a perfectly balanced driving machine with limited ability to put down huge (700 plus) hp numbers, especially when they come on violently which is the case w/ a turbo.

        A sc M3 is like a gorgeous women who has a beautiful face and perfect proportions. A 700 plus hp turbo E 46 is like tacking on 44DD fake tits, IMO.
