Active Autowerke Gen 3 Supercharger Kit for 1999-2006 BMW M3 [E46]


Quick Overview

Sku # : AA_SC_Kit_E46_M3_KY
Kit Application
Generation 3 Supercharger Kit
Active Autowerke set the tuning industry on fire by engineering the planet’s first proven supercharger system for the E46 M3. With several hundred now installed and over 500 dyno testing runs under our belts, the supercharger kits have defied all the odds – and stood the test of time. Now the Generation 3 Kit offers more power that even surprises dynos.

Active Autowerke has two kit levels that push out 480hp (Level 1) and 525hp (Level 2)

The Level 2 kit
increased power output is achieved with a smaller 70 mm pulley (5 mm less than Level 1) and some very crafty software goosing. A supercooling Active Autowerke water/alcohol injection kit is added to help eliminate detonation or knocking. Keep in mind, this kit can push your BMW factory exhaust system beyond its power tolerance – it is strongly recommend to upgrade to a high flow performance headers and a top quality free-flowing rear exhaust system.
