      Here at Active Autowerke we would like to thank everyone for helping make 2013 an excellent year! To show our gratitude our pricing has been restructured on all levels of our V8 intercooled supercharger kits starting at $8995. This new pricing will be effective today and should be extremely competitive with all other supercharger kits on the market. ...

      We have just completed our final software revision for the N62 engine. We have made great improvements to our previous tune thanks to BMW's Valvetronic technology which allows us to open up more power from the stock engine. The 650 we tested had 22 inch heavy wheels installed but as you can see from the dyno posted below we made some great power in the upper rpm range. We will need to get another car in here with stock wheels to get more realistic numbers from a stock car. ...

      Like clockwork we have introduced a new generation E46 m3 supercharger kit as soon as technology and pricing allows. This being our 8th generation and greatest yet, we have decided to use the best blower we have available the Rotrex 92 trim. For those wondering yes, this is the same blower we are using on our E9x M3 kits making 700+ HP. Not only does this blower increase hp but it also increases efficiency and lower intake air temps. ...

      Foreword by admin: Gentlemen, many M3 enthusiasts and car modification enthusiasts in general tend to get this wrong. Active Autowerke put up a quick article explaining that one can not compare superchargers especially for the M3 platform simply by looking at the PSI figures. 7 psi on a Vortech T-Trim and 7 psi on a Rotrex blower do not tell the whole story as far as how much air (measured in CFM, or cubic feet per minute) is getting into the motor and at what rpm. PSI does not explain the torque curve, max CFM the blower is capable of, or the compressor map. A good read by Active Autowerke explaining this below even for those familiar with boost being a measure of backpressure. ...

      Race on Sunday, to sell on Monday. This old saying is indicative of the new Generation 7 supercharger system for the E46 M3. Through countless hours of testing, it has often been quoted that the true test has always been a race environment. What better venue than Brock Yates One Lap of America Race. With a rigorous 7,000 miles to be covered within a week, and to compete against the likes of Porsches, Corvettes, Nissan GTRs, this would be the testing grounds for the new Generation Active Autowerke Supercharger system. The Active Autowerke Generation 7 Supercharger System not only proved its worth by being the highest ranked BMW within the field, but also ranked 1st in its class. ...

      BimmerBoost members, over the last couple of weeks we have been testing the Rotrex 91 trim on our stock engine shop car. So far our findings have been very promising. The biggest thing we have noticed is a large increase in efficiency, the blower makes the same if not more power running lower boost pressures with a marked difference in flow to redline. As of right now nothing is set in stone and things may change with additional long term testing. ...

      Here are results for the Active Autowerke E82 1M tune on a Mustang Dyno. Keep in mind, this dyno does read lower than a dynojet. The baseline was 292 rear wheel horsepower and with the tune this peak figure rose to 325 rear wheel horsepower with considerable torque gains through the curve. This was also done on 93 octane pump gas. ...
