I wouldn't hold my breath on this (especially based on how long it's taken these guys to "develop" the superchargers with no definitive date). It costs quite a bit to develop a supercharger and the company needs to look at the potential market size for sales. It may be too expensive given the actual number of people willing to bolt the supercharger onto their car.

That being said, I'm not sure our engines are strong enought to take FI. We have a different engine than the 335. BMW has beefed up the 335 engine where it's needed for FI. I think we're looking at issues with longevity even at low boost.

IMHO: A better idea may be intake, full exhaust, tune and cams. This should yield close to 300hp or more without the FI longevity issue.
