The E39 5er is a highly refined, and wonderful to drive automobile.
Maintainingthe the original BMW quality, smoothness and reliability
were the key factors inthe VF design and execution of a
supercharger system to give this 6cyl sportssedan new found power.
VF have harnessed reliability of Vortech superchargerswith their 10
years of supercharging experience and worldwide OEM supplycontacts
to create the ultimate bolt-on supercharger system for the
ultimatedriver's sport sedan.
All key components are 100% made in California. This system has
been fully road tested and dyno tuned on both the Mustang MD500AWD
and in-house Dynojet 224XLC dynamometers with and without engine
load. All kits are setup at 6 psi and create as much, if not more
power than similar products runningat the same or slightly higher
levels of boost without an intercooler.
VF engineers spent over 12 months software testing the BMW Bosch
and Siemens ECUs and resolved stalling and MAF issues faced
byoutdated supercharger systems. All test cars were put through
long term full throttle testing in conditions varying from wet cold
climates to hot dry Arizona desert temperature for safe-optimal air
fuel ratios and knock activity monitoring. Competently-written ECU
software has allowed VF to fully explore the potential of the BMW
engine, making over 40% more power in most applications.
VF chose to mount the Vortech supercharger with an in-house CNC
machined aluminum bracket system.All black powdercoated for sleek
looks; the unit is positioned in line with the original serpentine
belt which is replaced with a longer OEM belt. The key to this
design is that the OEM active-spring belt tensioner remains fully
functional and eliminates belt slip or the need to manually tension
the belt. The supercharger air ducts are custom molded in-house
from plastic to give an OEM appearance, quality and fit. The
incorporated Bosch boost overrun system is designed for smooth
off-throttle cruising and deceleration with clean emissions. The
crankcase ventilationsystem is designed to cope with positive
pressure and high flow OEM injectors are supplied to fit as direct
replacements without modification to the injector rail. The V3
supercharger unit is a super high performance blower that is highly
understressed at this power level, and is 100% internally
lubricated. (oils is available in 3-packsbelow).
The VF supercharger system remains fully OBD2 compliant and
is supported by a 1 year unlimited mileage warranty(on the
product/kit only). Software flash technology and the latest BMW
fileversions have all been employed to provide the cleanest and the
most reliablemethod of software installation. All tunes have been
extensively tested not onlyfor performance, but also excellent
drivability. After purchase, your ECU isflashed by VFs technicians
and sent back to you insuring a comprehensivereprogramming and peak
Every aspect of this kit has been fully engineered for high quality
fitment and highly demanding performance and expectation. VF's
in-house horizontal, turning and milling CNC's and plastic molding
plant, and Vortech's reliability have been fully exploited to
create a product with internationally un-rivaled material
technology, quality, and performance. Installation can be
performed in approximately 10-14 hours and is non-intrusive,
allowing it to be fully reversible.
Strong acceleration and smooth power are all exaggeratedto a point
where one might expect to find a V8 under the hood of their 5!
This kit is setup to create 6psi manifold pressure at peak boost
taking theZ3M to new heights while keepingthe reliability you need.
VF engineers tested and found 6psi to be the optimal induction
charge without aftercooling,and the highly efficient Vortech blower
offers the best gains-per-PSI ofcompetitive units.

compliant with California Air Resource Board (CARB) and notintended
for use on public roads in California. This applies to any
aftermarket product that does not display a CARBExemption Order
Number (EO#) which includes most supercharger systems.
Pleaseinquire if you need clarification.
Not all vehicles respond identically to engine modifications which
is why it is important to consider the "delta" or relative power
increase measured on the same dyno before and after
Power gains shown by VF have been found to be accurate on test
vehicles on 91 octane at sea level, with stock setups (ie throttle
body, exhaust system etc). The VF software adapts just as the OEM
software and a slight increase in performance may be expected from
the use of higher quality fuels such as 93 octane.
Power gains may vary according to factors such as altitude or
vehicle condition. Automatic vehicles are compatible but due to the
nature of the transmission, dyno measurements are not made.
