Stage 2 - The many facets of the Stage 2 BMW E36 USA M3 Supercharger Kit are the result of years of research and development. That's what it takes to produce the fastest and most reliable BMW Supercharged Automobiles.
RMS Hardware - RMS Hardware is known to be the best in the industry. Nothing is spared in RMS hardware design. The CNC-machined, 1″ thick 6061 t6 Aluminum plate rigid mounts the supercharger to the engine. The no-flex design assures perfect belt alignment under extreme conditions. These heavy-duty brackets are used on all E36 M3 stages using the V1 or V2 Blower.
Supercharger - RMS uses the Vortech V2 Sci trim supercharger on the E36 M3 Euro. This model blower is considered the new generation among superchargers. Highly advanced CAD modeled gears feature an optimized helical profile which allows for near-silent operation while providing superior performance. Ideal for the latest generation of higher flowing, high-power street and strip engines. Vastly improved flow and efficiency at high boost levels, providing completely new levels of power gain.
Blower Drive - We spend a great deal time and effort making the best blower drive components for our kits. The Crank Pulley is a two-piece modular design consisting of the RMS Crank Hub and the RMS Blower Drive Pulley. The Hub bolts onto the engine and the Supercharger Drive Pulley bolts onto the hub. This makes it possible to replace the Drive Pulley without having to purchase an entire Crank Pulley setup. The Hub always remains in place (see optional pulley setups in the Blower Drive category).
Airflow Management - Much thought goes into our airflow components. All components are designed with two driving factors in mind; temperature and velocity. The thermoplastic air intake system integrates by-pass control and PCV systems. The RMS by-pass valve diverts large amounts of air when not needed, and maximizes gas mileage and smooth drive-ability by efficiently controlling airflow anomalies. When the accelerator is applied, high rpm power responds instantly.
Charge Air Cooling - The RMS Air to Liquid Aftercooler is an RMS original innovation. It has been the talk of the industry since day one. We invented it for BMW forced-induction systems back in 1995. This system is designed solely for the S50 supercharged engines. For superior intake air temperature control, RMS Air-to-Liquid cooling is a must. Unlike Air-to-Air systems, the RMS aftercooler cools the charge air even when a vehicle is at the stoplight. Cold air is ready to build responsive torque and horsepower as soon as you put the pedal to the metal. The RMS front-mount heat exchanger shows through the lower grill and is located for maximum cooling. Included in the cooling system is a high-flow electric water pump, harness and plumbing.
Software - Engine management is done on the factory chip. We re-calibrate the software for efficiency, power and reliability. All software is done in-house in our dyno lab. We do not depend on outside sources for this difficult engineering practice. In-house means best quality control and most efficient process to deliver the software. Comes with plug in chip (OBDI) or a plug and play flash cable (OBDII). We have calibrations for most modified cars, low-compression gaskets, manifolds, headers, etc. Also available is the Miller WAR chip (OBDI ONLY) along with in-house tech support. With this you can make your own fine-tuning adjustments.
Warranty: This product carries a 12 month 12,000 conditional warranty. This product must be used as designed unless pre-approved in writing by RMS MANAGEMENT. Modifications or changes in any of the components will void the warranty. This product is supplied with base software that may require adjustment depending on other modifications made to engine operating systems such as , but not limited to racing camshafts, headers, compression ratio. It is the buyers responsibility to have the product installed by a qualified BMW tuning shop. In the event that software calibration is needed, at owners expense, the vehicle must be tested by a qualified technician with all required tools and test equipment in order to report all operating parameters pertaining to air-fuel-ratio, ignition timing and any other operating parameter that may require attention. This product is intended for off road use only and not smog legal in some states. Check with your local DMV if your vehicle can be legally operated in your local area.
