AA TS supercharger

Hey folks,

I'm strongly interested in doing the Active Autowerke stage 2 twin screw supercharger. I need some bimmerwerkz brainpower to figure out what all I should do to the car in conjunction.

1. Obviously I need to do an automatic to manual transmission swap. I'd like to do the six-speed rather than the five-speed swap. AA performance clutch? Advice? Cost? Strange things to know?

2. Can the differential in a standard E36 M3 stand up to >400 hp?

3. Should I do a partial engine rebuild? Pistons? Gaskets? What do I need to do to this engine to make it last with boost?

4. What if I dropped in some Schrick cams along with the s/c? Anticipated gains? Race headers?

Basically, I'll be saving up for this over the next twelve months, so money is not a huge concern. Tell me what you would do if you were interested in doing this upgrade to an E36 M3.

a turbo or SC is the 2nd to last thing you probably want to do. (chip being last) Definetly get headers with a free flow exhaust. A more agressive cam will most likely take advantage of the extra air better since cam timing is different. Also you should upgrade the throttle body. Lastly you'll probably want to look into oil-cooling too... I dont know much about the transmission swap, but id love to see a 6-speed E36!

p.s. I want to do the same thing to my E30...
(5 speed, though)





p.p.s. can I have a loan?

The swap can be done as well as provided in a kit form with everything necessary. We have clutch and flywheels as well to with stand 400+ hp

The diffs in the E36 models have been known to be iffy. Our diff support bracket is well known all around the world and will save you thousands.

This kit was designed on a completely stock motor but if your engine has aged a bit you may just want to do a leak down test and/ or a compression test and make sure everything is still in good shape. I would also advise checking all of your hoses and the gaskets. Rebuilding for the twin screw isn't necessary.

I advise headers and an exhaust we do have a new 3 inch turbo exhaust coming out for boosted cars. As for the cams you can if you want to but not necessary the exhaust and water alcohol injection will make you very happy with the performance of the kit.

Hey Jean, thanks for the reply. The M3 will soon be turning into my second car, and once I get some cash saved up, I'm actually considering the idea of dropping the car off to you guys in Miami--I figure no one does installs of AA stuff better than AA; and you might as well do the tranny and diff work for me too, if you'd be open to it. Can I assume that AA does all of this kind of stuff in-house for the right price? Would you be able to help me locate and purchase a euro M3 six-speed tranny too, for instance?

I'm going to do the compression and leakdown test at the earliest opportunity. What are considered "good" numbers for those tests?

Yes we can i can get just about anything you might need for an E36 we have been working on those models for about a 10 or so years now and we have so much to offer.
I can get you a complete tranny kit when you are ready at a decent price. Same for the twin screw and install i will try my best to give you a completely different beast at a price which you will not regret. If you are ever in the area come down and take a ride in our twin screw and feel it for your self.

As for the compression test some gauges may be off a little so look for consistency in all six cylinders ranging form 185- 200 but make sure they are consistent all the way across.
As for the leak down test anything less than a 10% drop off is pretty good.

Like i said just maintain the car properly and check hoses and other wear and tear items and your car will last as long as you want it to boosted or not.

Hey man, remember I'm a teacher :-) Actually I just got a new teaching job down in the Atlanta area with a significantly higher salary than I'm used to. Priority number one will be paying off school debt. The car will be priority number 2 after that. I would imagine that I'll be doing car stuff starting in about January. I'm sure I still won't beat my new boss's cars, though--either of them. He has truly great taste. Not interested in giving out any personal information, so don't ask. He has a Bentley Continental GT as a daily driver and a Ferrari 575 Maranello. He also really likes my M3. We have very similar philosophies on a lot of things. I'm going to be pretty happy down there :-)

^ wow what do you guys teach to make so much $$$


That is sick though, I know you can get the euro tranny off of bimmerworld, as for your diff I would spend the extra money and get a limited slip that is built to take the heat, that way you get relability and better traction, full exhaust would be sick as well, water/alchohol is a must(eric has it, ask him about it) trottle body is a good idea, your engine it self can remain stock, but the other stuff would make a dank ass ride

BMW use bolts to secure the head. There are alternative, stronger options. What are your suggestions? (open question)

Are our pistons forged? If not, what are some really good forged pistons? And rings to go with those?

I seem to recall a comparison with M50 rods on here a while ago. Are those direct replacements for my rods?

Our engines are strong. It has been proven that you don't need to do much internal work at all. What most recommend is just doing a thicker headgasket, thus dropping the compression a bit. While doing that put in better head studs (ARP usually recommended) and you should be set. AA does great work and with that engine work you'll be making great reliable power.


W/I injection isn't a bad idea. AA also has a good w/i system. I thinkt hey retail it for $750.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
