Nothing against Korman at all (they build great engines and such from what I have heard), but I was a little wary of their turbo kit when I looked at what they had on their website (see Turbocharging is a lot more complicated than a turbo and some plumbing... to be done really right, there are fuel and ignition controllers to create more power and protect the engine. An intercooler is practically a must-have as well. From what I could see, the Korman kit does not have any of that, so turbo gains are modest at best. A kit like that could be upgraded by increasing the boost and augmenting the fuel/ignition maps, but it's not a simple or inexpensive task.

Like I said, Korman makes good stuff... but a simple turbo kit like that will not turn an E2 535i into an E34 M5.

Korman still lists them as being available on their website. I would check with them...
