WITH A HEAVY FOCUS ON SOUND ENGINEERING, VF OFFERS THE TOTAL PACKAGE WITH RELIABILITY AND POWER!
The E39 5er is a highly refined, and wonderful to drive automobile. Maintainingthe the original BMW quality, smoothness and reliability were the key factors inthe VF design and execution of a supercharger system to give this 6cyl sportssedan new found power. VF have harnessed reliability of Vortech superchargerswith their 10 years of supercharging experience and worldwide OEM supplycontacts to create the ultimate bolt-on supercharger system for the ultimatedriver's sport sedan.
All key components are 100% made in California. This system has been fully road tested and dyno tuned on both the Mustang MD500AWD and in-house Dynojet 224XLC dynamometers with and without engine load. All kits are setup at 6 psi and create as much, if not more power than similar products runningat the same or slightly higher levels of boost without an intercooler.
VF engineers spent over 12 months software testing the BMW Bosch and Siemens ECUs and resolved stalling and MAF issues faced byoutdated supercharger systems. All test cars were put through long term full throttle testing in conditions varying from wet cold climates to hot dry Arizona desert temperature for safe-optimal air fuel ratios and knock activity monitoring. Competently-written ECU software has allowed VF to fully explore the potential of the BMW engine, making over 40% more power in most applications
VF chose to mount the Vortech supercharger with an in-house CNC machined aluminum bracket system.All black powdercoated for sleek looks; the unit is positioned in line with the original serpentine belt which is replaced with a longer OEM belt. The key to this design is that the OEM active-spring belt tensioner remains fully functional and eliminates belt slip or the need to manually tension the belt. The supercharger air ducts are custom molded in-house from plastic to give an OEM appearance, quality and fit. The incorporated Bosch boost overrun system is designed for smooth off-throttle cruising and deceleration with clean emissions. The crankcase ventilationsystem is designed to cope with positive pressure and high flow OEM injectors are supplied to fit as direct replacements without modification to the injector rail. The V3 supercharger unit is a super high performance blower that is highly understressed at this power level, and is 100% internally lubricated. (oils is available in 3-packsbelow)
The VF supercharger system remains fully OBD2 compliant and is supported by a 1 year unlimited mileage warranty(on the product/kit only). Software flash technology and the latest BMW fileversions have all been employed to provide the cleanest and the most reliablemethod of software installation. All tunes have been extensively tested not onlyfor performance, but also excellent drivability. After purchase, your ECU isflashed by VFs technicians and sent back to you insuring a comprehensivereprogramming and peak performance.
Every aspect of this kit has been fully engineered for high quality fitment and highly demanding performance and expectation. VF's in-house horizontal, turning and milling CNC's and plastic molding plant, and Vortech's reliability have been fully exploited to create a product with internationally un-rivaled material technology, quality, and performance. Installation can be performed in approximately 10-14 hours and is non-intrusive, allowing it to be fully reversible.
Strong acceleration and smooth power are all exaggeratedto a point where one might expect to find a V8 under the hood of their 5!
This kit is setup to create 6psi manifold pressure at peak boost taking theZ3M to new heights while keepingthe reliability you need. VF engineers tested and found 6psi to be the optimal induction charge without aftercooling,and the highly efficient Vortech blower offers the best gains-per-PSI ofcompetitive units.

-----Notes for CA Residents:
This product is not compliant with California Air Resource Board (CARB) and notintended for use on public roads in California. This applies to any aftermarket product that does not display a CARBExemption Order Number (EO#) which includes most supercharger systems. Pleaseinquire if you need clarification.
Not all vehicles respond identically to engine modifications which is why it is important to consider the "delta" or relative power increase measured on the same dyno before and after modification.
Power gains shown by VF have been found to be accurate on test vehicles on 91 octane at sea level, with stock setups (ie throttle body, exhaust system etc). The VF software adapts just as the OEM software and a slight increase in performance may be expected from the use of higher quality fuels such as 93 octane.
Power gains may vary according to factors such as altitude or vehicle condition. Automatic vehicles are compatible but due to the nature of the transmission, dyno measurements are not made.
