In Reply to: H&H actually used a stroked 4.0 V8 - 4.4 (more) posted by Hans on July 07, 2000 at 08:56:30:

: Re. and they all, H&H, MK and G Power, use Rotrex turbine chargers with 9 psi air/liquid aftercoolled boost. All three engines are rated at 450hp/460lb/ft.

: Not to nit pick but H&H used a stroked 4.0 litre v8, stroked to 4.4 litres in their E36 utilizing a Vortech V1 trim supercharger. No intercooling. 450hp and 421 lb/ft torque. MK used a vortech S1 trim blower as well in their 540i kit and produce 430hp in the 540i 6spd and 390hp in the 540ia. Still not intercooling. The Gpower system does use a triple K supercharger and I would guess that you are right that there is some type of inter/aftercooling to keep charge temp. down.

G-power is a sc and has no u.s. distributer (that might change if I have my way)oh and translate the g-power site and you will see that they are very expensive. Hamann is also a helluva lot more cash as well. The exhaust from hamann is $2500. Good luck why don't you just wait for MVR to release the twin turbo's off the bently arnage. Now tell me Bimmers were never turbo charged. check it out and use altavista babblefish to translate.
