Since no one is developing a supercharger for the M45.... I called Vortech, the people who make one of the best G35 supercharger kits, to have them build me a custom setup. They said they wouldn't do it for just me, but they would develop a M45 specific kit, if I could come up with around 25 people that were serious about it. Not sure how much the kit would be, but I am assuming it would be very similar to the G35 kit price because of all common components. The main difference would be the custom piping and ECU tuning. I've seen the G kit go from about $3,800 to $5,500 depending on who was selling it.
So anyway, I figured I'd post this just to see if there were any people that has the same itch that I do. I am also posting on FreshAlloy to see if I can come with anywhere close to 25 people. If we get close, I'd actully buy several kits just to make sure it went into production. Since my wife terminated my ambition of getting an 06 M5 after the test drive because of the jerkiness of the SMG transmission in auto mode (when she would be driving in auto mode with the baby), I chose the M45. Obviously, I won't be able to get the M45 to handle like the M5, but I can get it very close to the M5's 507 horsepower. I'd rather not go with nitrous like my last cars because of the short bursts of power and the bottle refils, but if I can't seem to get a supercharger or turbo setup, I won't have a choice.
