    V12 twin turbo kits and Manual trans kits

    Wondering how many people would be interested in complete twin turbo kits for the 850i and complete manual transmission kits before I start supplying these kits. Not sure on price tags for the kits but they will be affordable for what you get. They will be based off of the Dinan TT kits that they used to make. Will be offering other parts for these cars as well. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Thanks for the invitation.
    First, you have to prove that you place engineering and correctness above all else.
    Engineering is a religion that bows far down to documentation, what you have done, ignoring what you propose.
    A red flag: all the alleged accomplishment in your signature.
    Sorry...show me the finished result on your personal (or perhaps company) dime, then let's talk.
    Don't take it personal, I have the same rant about many others, across many forums.
    Bottom line: you the supplier, DO THE APP, SET YOUR PRICE, then ask for customer buy-in, in that exact order.

    Make it for yourself, then ask people if they want the same...

    These types of threads pop up (waaaay) too often and 99.9% lead to NOTHING but a multi page thread of disappointed people.

    But if you can make it happen, Go for it!!!

    The interest is there for sure but like everyone said make the kit, show us how it performs, tell us the price and if it reasonable you will get orderes.
    Considering supercharger kits are readily available from 8500 to 13000 depending on performance imo twin turbo kit good for 500 hp needs to be priced around 10k to gain interest.

    A couple of design items that would raise the appeal factor are:

    1) No need for headlight relocation for ducting/turbos
    2) No major mods/relocation of radiator/cooler stuff
    3) Plug and play, i.e. no custom mapping of each individual engine
    4) No bodywork required
    5) No degradation of engine and/or transmission cooling

    Ive got a few 850's ill be installing these kits on. Manual and automatics. The automatics will come with a transmission cooler. Everything will be plug and play just like the Dinan kits. Just need to replicate the kits and get them installed and run tests. Ill be offering s62 swaps also once I complete mine.

    I am also interested but the question I am fasing is: isn't supercharger enough?

    Do you have a Dinan kit out of the car to replicate It?? Have you scanned Dinan manifold or do you have a custom mold?
    If manifolds are to be made from scratch every time there is no way kit will be affordable imo.

    I have an actual Dinan kit that will be replicated. I want to make these kits somewhat affordable to help each other out and feed our addiction for mods lol. I will be running these kits on my cars first.

    Well depends. The car with this twin turbo kit is at 500hp.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I will try and make these kits for the e38 models as well. I have a few 750's myself. Right now im only at the beginning stages of the build.

    2x 850i auto / manual
    When you say affordable James (you know me on fb) , whats a ball park for a kit?

    Supercharger new from germany with everything included was $10,000-12,000 for 533hp

    https://sites.google.com/a/itsystems...ii-plus-sc-kit

    They have smaller kits but its still in the 8-9k . I talked to the guy . I couldn't justify it

    I have to replicate the kit, cover my costs and make a tad bit of profit to cover my time. Once i can put everything together i can come up with some numbers.

    I would probably make a kit for this too. i would need a donor car to start with. Maybe after this kit is available and set i will begin looking into manual swaps for the 840ci.

    Cool

    I have a set of original Dinan TT manifolds for M70. Not cheap! Perfect condition. Anyone interested?

    Sorry, should have said "inexpensive"!! They are the specific manifolds for original Dinan E31 conversion. Everything fits under hood no problems. Just need to duplicate their plumbing.
