    I found this and wondered what you thought.
    It would mean selling wifeys VR6 and a RIB but would it be worth it?


    I enquired to G-power and this what I got back:

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage über einen Kompressorkit zum BMW Z3 2.2l. Gerne
    bieten wir wie folgt an:

    G280110030

    G-POWER Supercharger kit EVO S 2.2K for automatic- or manual
    transmission. Conversion of 2.2l series engine. Output: 184kW (250hp), 0.35

    Nm / 3550 r.p.m. V-Max: more than 245 km/h 0-100 km/h: 6,3 sec.

    G280110040

    G-POWER Supercharger kit EVO I 2.2K manual transmission. Conversion of
    2.2l series engine. Output: 206kW (280hp), 0.45 bar boost pressure,
    consisting of: Integrated G-POWER supercharger G21 in series strap-drive,
    with high-performance centrifugal clutch for declutching in neutral, G-POWER
    sport air filter, air intake pipe, aluminium air cooler, stainless-steel air
    way pipe, adjustment of the engine electronic and G-POWER logo. Recommended
    auxilliary equipment: Optimized G-POWER stainless-steel rear silencer and
    G-POWER speedo up to 300 km/h. Output: 206kW (280hp) / 5990 r.p.m. Max.
    torque: 350 Nm / 3550 r.p.m. V-Max: more than 240 km/h 0-100 km/h: 5,5 sec.
    EUR 7622.00
    incl. VAT


    Assembly costs (average estimate/depending on efforts)
    EUR 1200.00
    incl. VAT

    So for 280HP total costs would be around 9000 euros (£6000) and would take about 2 weeks, so a flight and eurotunnel trip would need to be costed in.

    My estimate is 127HP per litre, simple maths says 381 for your 3 litre – more then a M3. Tempted now

    what about selling the Beemer, and buying an S4 and RS2 Avant with the ££ you would spend on the mods? You could also chip the Audi for less than £1k.

    Now tell me thats a bad idea /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Sorry but I think thats a hell of alot of money for 5/6psi. If you want this done properly drop the CR, more boost ( like 10psi+ ) *then* it'd be worth the money.

    Bin the beemer, buy a turbo car.... cheaper to tune.

    Not the answer you wanted I know!

    Nice idea, but the (trouble brewing) prob is that the BMW drives better for me than a S2, and even with the mods would cost half an RS4! And go as quickly....theoreticaly /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
