They have produced a working supercharger kit for the N52 323i 2.5L.

Here are the attachments I got on my email. Looks promising, what do you guys think?!

I'm going to inquire about the pricing!

Update 2: Official update on ARMA's website too!
http://www.armaspeed.com/product_1_1.php?catId=316

Quote:
Stage 2 Kit:
Supercharger, mounting brackets, idler pulleys and accessory drive belt, high-flow air filter, supercharger inlet duct, hardware accessories, Fuel Management Computer (FMC), fuel injectors, by pass valve, intercooler.

This system is exclusively added the ARMA-developed STAGE-2 mechanical supercharging system. The horsepower testing shows that the N52 323 2.5 engine’s torque can reach to the level at 313PHP 370 NM, and the 325 2.5 can drive to the torque at 350HP 410NM, moreover, the 330s are even comparable to the torque of V8M3 at 425HP 510NM. The Front Mount Air-to-Air Intercooler, exclusive computer and ARMA Exhaust are the indispensables to push the 3-series to the ultimate. To equip the full kit of ARMA Mechanical Supercharging System is the best buy for the 3-series owners.

Definitely inquire about the price, installation, and reliability... I wonder if this will work on the 330i's with the N52 engine as well (since it has a 3.0L engine instead of the 2.5L one)?

This system looks pricey. I'm guessing it'll be in the 10k range after parts/installation/labour, if not more.

I think a 335 would be a more cost efficient upgrade imho but i'm definitely sub'd to this one. =)

Another update, Arma mentioned that they have a plug and play ECU system with the right mappings for our cars. It is easy to install. Will find out the pricing and how is the installation.

I just got a price quote from Ben@ARMA of $8800, plus 20% off, so $7040. Shipping is $600.

That's for the Stage 3 supercharger for the 330i, which includes the supercharger kit, stander, bleed valve, oil injection, ecu, intercooler, and other accessories.

Optional items are apparently the header LHD for $1320 and an exhaust which includes a variable exhaust vacuum valve for $1800.

I assume the ECU is effectively a custom tune that accounts for the boost provided by the supercharger kit, but I'm not 100% sure.

Also, that being said.. those are some impressive performance numbers. Very curious what we would be looking at with a 3.0L...
