Why a PRIMA SC Kit
Since June, 2006, BMW stopped production of the E46 M3 making this model BMW 8 years old to date. Through time, the BMW E46 M3 has become one of the most sought after BMW to be enhanced with performance modifications. One of which is the installation of a supercharger system capable of creating 600 horsepower.
The 8 year tenure invites a multitude of new owners looking for performance modifications at a renewed price point to match the readjusted Kelly Blue Book price. With amortization expensed on the Active Autowerke supercharger components, the timing for a entry level supercharger system could not be timed more appropriately.
Can I run the PRIMA without a Intercooler
With an engine compression on the S54 engine at 11.5:1 this was considered suicidal at times. Through years of product development supercharging this specific motor; the software development has undergone changes to offset not only the high compression but also the additional boost created.
So YES, it can be operated, but is dependant on boost level, horsepower maintained and engine temperatures. If exceeded, then the need for Level 1 to 2 becomes more apparent.
Can the PRIMA SC Kit be upgradable
YES. Just like all other Active Autowerke SC kits, they are designed from inception to be modular with the intent of future upgrade levels of power if so desired.
