Make our own 3-series Turbo.

Is there any aftermarket company working on the e90 3 right now, creating any type of Turbo?? This car could be pushing 300horses with a turbo.

Send a message via AIM to a burrito
i have a real good feeling that your going to have to put one together because no one really mass produced one for the previous 3.

and especially with the 335i coming out next year (factory turbo) there will be even a less of a consumer need for such a product.

Companies would probably have to do a lot of R&D since Valvetronic doesnt like turbo's in its normal form

romeo is right, horsepowerfreak was considering producing turbos for the E90, haven't heard from them in a while. This is the thread
