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. G-power.de check it out and use altavista babblefish to translate.
