It has been a little less than 3 weeks with no updates. Having issues with the install?

on another note, the intake manifold seems rather weird looking and not effective at dividing the air on all 6 cylinders equally, anyone notice this?

Install went quite well, we just have been very busy in preparation for MFest just this past weekend.



Updates coming soon.

I have noticed that the VF570 kit is not listed for the Z4 M on VF's website.

Is this a custom kit or a mistake?

Good eye and good point. No idea about specifics since I'm not fluid dynamics expert

But damn, all these FI threads are quite disappointing with the lack of updates. The only one that seems to have delivered was the Savspeed turbo application from South Africa.

Yes, the VF570 kit is of course listed on the VF's website for the E43 M3.

I guess they might have perfected the tune for the Z4 M by now which I would assume would be the only significant difference from the E46 M3 and just not paid their I.T. staff to update their website yet.

Serious customers will call them and ask but more online documentation, videos, reviews and dyno graphs would be appreciated by the majority I would think.

Very curious to see where this goes. I had one of VF's first Vortech based SC kits on my 2000 GTI VR6 about 8 years ago. It was a non-intercooled 6psi kit that I tracked for 2 years and even did a cross country trip to the Grand Canyon from NJ. Loved every mile on the car be it on street or track.

If this kit is at that solid reliability level, my Z4MC may be lookig for some more power to try and beat on some GT3s on track
