Turbos and SC's

If you could pick the best Turbo Kit or SC in your car what would it be.


Please keep it BMW specific and list the chassis number or any other specifics that would be required for your individual vehicle.


Call it market research.

Well I couldn't afford the best one, but then you can't sell Dinan kits on your site anyway.

Think about VF Engineering for the E39 and a number of other models; also consider Active Autowerke, although their reputation isn't quite as stellar as VF. I am highly intrigued by the twin screw s/c setups from Active, and kinda wish I had kept my M3 so I could slap one on...



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

Also note that VF Engineering is known for teh fastest turnaround time on new kits and chips, as well as teh least problems post mods (like check engone lights coming onn etc). My shop switched to VF from AA after having many of these issues. I will pick their brains as to some turbos and get back to you in this space.
