The kit is arriving tomorrow morning!! can't wait. Anyway, will be posting pictures of the whole process so stay tuned!

just an update:

Supercharger kit will arrive on Friday, 24th June 2011
We will start the installation by Monday, (workshop needs to clear some overdue cars)

The ARMA guys are sending their engineers over to my country to come assist us on the procedure on the 4th of July.

Thanks for all your encouragement!

Middle East are third world countries?? of course under the instability situations and wars created by first world countries so they can control all the natural resources and oil to remain first world countries!!!

There's no such thing as "THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES" my friend. It's "the strong controlling the weak". And just to let you know: Taiwan is only a necessity for the WEST to blackmail and bug China. Otherwise, Taiwan or any other strategic country on earth will be less than third world country!!!

And about this ARMA SC that costs 10-12K installed, what's the point of it? just spend your money on getting a 335 100% german made, designed and engineered. I think I can do other fun things in life with this much money and still drive a BMW)

Anyway, Just my opinion

anyway.. I just thought its wrong hearing taiwan is a third world country.. since im taiwanese and yea thats just my opinion..
anyway, I agree with you guys that german cars will be better with german or euro aftermarket stuff.. and that 8k is a bit too much.

That is some great customer service, Taiwan isn't close to Singapore at all.

Please keep us updated.

You are correct.

There will be a little surprise in about a month

Perfect timing now that there is a member with an ARMA to compare with

Things will never be the same for the N52 community.

Stay tuned

I'm curious: What engine are you running?
Just want to make sure it's the same engine we're running here.

Looks like they left some power on the table with those severely flattened out IC in/out pipes and the fact they pull in hot underhood air instead of outside cool air...

yeah singapore's a nice place.. quite expensive to live here though. Anyway if the N52B25 can be Supercharged, so can the N52B30. in fact you should be looking at staggering figures compared to the puny 2.5L.


On a side note, the intercooler is Front mounted. so it does feed cold air from the outside

I can see the IC is front mounted, but the SC itself pulls it's air from an open filter underhood - so the feed air will be hot already before it is even compressed, making it even hotter. The IC would better/further cool down the intake charge if the actual air inlet for the SC pulled in only cool outside air...

Almost seems like it needs a feed hose from the bumper.

Not exactly. There are several setups on the market using a similar filter placement (GTO, Mustang, G8) and it's been proven that the air from that location is barely higher than ambient while at motion. And since you're not making boost from a dead stop, when the engine bay is very hot, you'll be just fine.
