The VF-Engineering supercharger for the BMW E85 Z4M S54 engine is the only air-to-water charge cooled supercharger system on the market. Designed to provide the most consistent charge temperatures under aggressive driving, the VF air-to-water charge cooler system has a greater propensity to dissipate heat energy out of the air charge than any air-to-air intercooler.
VF use state of the art production manufacturing processes to create the highest quality supercharger kit on the market. A supercharger system designed with 2 stages of power, each stage upgradable to the next, this piece of kit is for quality discerning enthusiasts only.
Based upon the Vortech V-3 Si Super Quiet unit, this unit is capable of supporting over 700hp. The centrifugal supercharger compressor maps ideally match the 8,000 rpm revving S54 BMW Motorsport engine giving it a new meaning to high performance.
Machined from 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum the supercharger mounting bracket is triangulated to the engine block in addition to a Chrome Moly brace and grade 10.8 high tensile hardware. The factory belt tensioner is upgraded and the supercharger driven off an OEM quality multi-rib serpentine belt. The factory plastic intake manifold is replaced with a VF cast aluminum plenum designed to channel the air from the supercharger to the 6 independent M3 throttle bodies. The VF plenum is designed to be upgraded with a slide-in high strength bar and plate heat exchanger for the upper 2 power level kits. The heat exchanger cools the intake air charge with isolated cold water circulating through it from a custom molded water reservoir, an OEM front mount radiator and water pump.
The high displacement bypass valve recirculates air charge off-throttle to minimize manifold pressure instantly. The bypass valve is mounted on a universal flange allowing you to opt for a blow-off valve. The injectors are upgraded with high capacity Bosch EV14 high impedance quick response fuel injectors and calibrated by re-tuned software flashed into the ECU through the OBD2 port. This system has been fully road tested and dyno tuned on both the Mustang MD500AWD and Dynojet 224XLC dynamometers with and without engine load.Â Each power level is tuned with a specific custom calibrated software version.
Software is programmed into your ECU using the optional â€œHex-Flashâ€ programming cable. You can program your ECU in 15 minutes yourself through the OBD2 connector on your dashboard. This tool also allows you to read and clear ECU codes.
