Finally got my supercharger installed, comprising of the Vortech Supercharger kit, Vortech fuel regulator, K&N air filters, etc.

Will post up pictures later on, but I can definitely feel the jump in power during the 3K - 5K rpm range.

Pros:
1) Noise level isn't that noticeable at all, especially with my Alpine 7998 blasting away.

2) HP increased from 184 HP to 250 HP, torque from 240 nm @ 3,500 rpm to 320 nm @ 4,500 rpm

Cons:

1) My bimmer redlines MUCH faster than I expected . Seriously, the only thing I noticed so far was that after changing the air filter, the car starts a little slower sometimes from a standstill in traffic. I guess with the hot weather and traffic conditions in Bangkok, this is the norm

2) My stock muffler seems to be stifling the exhaust air flow a bit. I guess this is my next upgrade. Any suggestions?


Question: Do I need to upgrade my brakes as well or will the stocks hold?
