With 420 hp the S65 V8 high-revving engine from the BMW M3 E9X is everything but underpowered. But which BMW M3 driver would turn down a little 'extra' in performance, torque and revving vivacity?

Quite a lot, keeping in mind the sheer number of BMW M3 drivers still driven their BMW M3 in stock condition! For the future this number will chance dramatically, since G-POWER has presented its new M3 V8 SK Plus supercharger system, nor less than a revolution in the world of BMW tuning. A profound increase in power output combined with a stout torque curve 'plug and play' out of a box! That's something that worldwide only the G-POWER M3 SK Plus supercharger system can offer.

After a short installation time the driver of a BMW M3 equipped with the SK plus supercharger system can experience the feeling of a seemingly endless power increase throughout the rev-range! At the same time the response of the stock M3 V8 engine is improved, as well.

2014 G-Power M3 V8 SK PlusThat's all? Of course not, since the torque curve benefits from the modifications made by G-POWER, too. Already at lower rpms the torque rises and keeps building up throughout the rev-range. This provides the driver with even more pleasure during sporty drives, e.g. when accelerating out of narrow corners or for superior overtaking maneuvers.

Why has G-POWER waited to present this revolutionary supercharger system targeted to all of the BMW M3 drivers? The answer is in the fact that until now G-POWER has developed M3 supercharger systems with the set goal to achieve the most possible power output in order to satisfy the needs for those BMW M3 drivers seeking for maximum power output. With the 720 hp strong M3 V8 SK III supercharger system this goal has been achieved for the time being. So the next logical step has been to establish a product that has its focus on the other end of the power output range, in order to provide every BMW M3 driver with a reasonable priced power output enhancement. So the development objective has not been set on the maximum power output increase but on an easy installation and an unbeatable price tag.

So, in order to establish a product below the 500 hp strong G-POWER M3 V8 SK I system that has been well known for years for its strength and reliability, this system has been analyzed with the specification 'less is more'. Of course the modular character of the G-POWER supercharger systems has been a big advantage for the engineers in order to do so. As a result a maximum of common parts with the existing M3 V8 supercharger systems – that have been serially produced using the latest state-of-the-art production processes for 6 years now- has been realised. The experience of more than 800 build systems since the start of production of the G-POWER M3 V8 supercharger system vouches for a constant quality level facing OEM level.

The same applies for the basic principle of the SK Plus concept: low-boost forced induction of a stock engine. With this concept G-POWER has gathered experience for more than 10 years now, ever since the successful introduction of the SK Plus supercharger system for the BMW 3-series E46 and Z4 E85. This system has been installed thousands of times in the meantime. The secret of the low-boosted forced induction is to keep the boost level as low as 4,3 psi in order to keep the compressed air 'cool', thus making a sophisticated intercooling system superfluous. At the same time the extremely efficient ASA supercharger is supporting the result of the power output enhancement as well, since it consumes considerable less drive power than a similarly configured Roots-type supercharger, and provides at the same time a significant lower boost temperature. Less drive power for the supercharger equals more absolute power output for the engine.

In the end the power output enhancement provided by the G-POWER M3 V8 SK Plus supercharger system adds up to a very traceable 55 hp and 80 Nm of torque. That means the overall output of the BMW M3 E9X is pushed from 420 hp/400 Nm to a sporty 475hp/480 Nm, that's more than a BMW M3 GTS can provide.

That leaves us with the question: how much is it? The price for the M3 SK Plus supercharger system starts from € 3.355,-- (excl. VAT) plus installation. That's about as much as a reasonable priced set of wheels for the BMW M3 E9X! Does this leave any room left for the classic tuning? Frankly speaking? No! Because „chip tuning' can't provide a noticeable power output enhancement and 'stroker engines' with a similar power output enhancement are disproportionate more expensive.

Summing up you can state that the overall characteristics of the new G-POWER M3 V8 SK Plus supercharger system – performance, quality and price – make it a product without any competition in the global market of power output enhancements for the BMW M3 E9X. Furthermore it is customizable with several options accordingly to the individual needs of the customer. Thus it is the sole true alternative for all BMW M3 drivers that are looking for just this little extra kick in performance that makes the difference.

Since the company's founding in 1983, it has focused solely on the tuning of BMW cars and the production of exclusive, handcrafted vehicles. In 2008, G-POWER was integrated into Group ASA, a year in which both brands celebrated their 25th anniversary. G-POWER is now one of the few globally active and highly reputable suppliers of exclusive cars. In cooperation with development partner ASA, G-POWER has developed unique versions of BMW's most important models, and the world's most powerful versions of each, which clearly sets us apart from our competitors. G-POWER holds seven world records:

- Fastest BMW sedan with 730hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE and a top speed of 360 km/h

- Fastest LPG-powered car with the 660hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRCANE GS and a top speed of 333 km/h

- Fastest Sedan with the 750hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RS on the ATP high-speed oval in Papenburg with a measured top speed of 367.4 km/h. G-POWER exceeded its own record with the 800hp G-POWER M5 HÚRRICANE RR with a top speed of 372 km/h
