    Thumbs up Active Autowerke | Gen 7 Dyno | Level 1 VS Level 2

    Mid Range? Yeah... We Got That !

    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.


    The data and technology that made this winning combination is now being applied in the new Generation 7 of the Active Autowerke supercharged E46 M3 Level 2. Reliability and power are needed if you want to be on the podium, and this new Generation 7 will deliver exactly that. Consistent, repeatable runs of over 420 WHP (510 engine horsepower) were recorded from our Level 1 kit on the Active Autowerke Mustang chassis dyno in hot 94 + degree Fahrenheit conditions with humidity in the 60% + range.


    The stage 2 System boosts the S54's power output to over 600BHP and includes an upgraded fuel system (includes two fuel pumps, fuel filter, all new -6 lines, fuel pressure regulator, dead end fuel rail, upgraded injectors and all required fittings). This ugpraded fuel system is a must once reaching these increased boost levels due to the fact that the factory fuel system is simply inadequate at this level. The stage 2 system also use a larger front mount air to air intercooler and our custom methanol injection system.

    A pump gas stage 1 hpf makes 443whp and 310 wtq. Our level 1 makes way better all around power.
    http://www.horsepowerfreaks.com/imag...HPF/Stage1.gif

    Now if pushing it to the limit on stock internals is your style we can use a rotrex with 14 psi and make 520 on our mustang dyno. In fact we have a couple customers riding the limit for quite some time without any issues *Knock on wood*

    I know one of our clients destroyed an hpf and another turbo s54 the other day. Hopefully he will post a video if he filmed it.

    If you want a reliable car that you can drive everyday.. This is it!

    They use a stand alone ecu system while we use the factory dme. Stand alone's are not cheap.

    AA level 2 $12000
    Hpf stage 2 $15750

    Click here to enlarge Just Compare the dyno sheets and you will see there is no comparison at all.

    We actually made 700 whp on Formula 1 driver Tony Kanaan's car Active Autowerke turbo STOCK engine.

    I cant find a original from them so you would have to plot it. If you want to do it in your head just pick an rpm and compare.
