    Pics of sc install on my e39 540

    Hi,

    I just wanted to give an update on the install of the VF Engineering supercharger kit being installed on my 2000 540/6. The top tube with "VF" on it will be a one piece tube by next week. Nik at VF is making the mold for the new tube as we speak. The only thing I'm waiting on is for GIAC to encrypt thier software for my car. I should have it on the road by mid-next week. The rest of the pics I have can be seen at link to sc pics http://kodakgallery.com/BrowsePhotos...1&sort_order=0

    Yep, I got it back last night...

    I am very happy with my 540's new found power. Rather than retype everything here, here is a link to the e39 board with my write up, dyno's, and a picture.

    How's it going now?

    Dustin, I am looking to purchase the VF also. It's been about a year since your install, how has driveability, durability, reliability been? Have you needed to visit your installer for tuning often?
    Is it still fun? Would you do anything different?
    Thanks for your advice. Jim in Chicago.

    What do you mean encrypt the software? Is this to protect their proprietary work or is the BMW software encrypted?

    Thanks,

    Joe
