The V3 series is a budget friendly mid-range setup that utilizes a bolt-on bracket system which supports mounting of the short snout Eaton M62 and M90 superchargers. It retains all OEM accessories, such as air-conditioning, power steering, alternator and even utilizes the OEM belt drive.
This supercharger kit has been in development in a joint project with K.C. Design Concepts since 2017. The V3 series comes in 3 options: the V3.1X which supports both the Eaton M90 and the Eaton M62 superchargers, the V3.2 which supports the Eaton M90 supercharger, and the smaller V3.62 which supports the Eaton M62 supercharger. The Eaton M62 allows for low to moderate boost at 6-8 PSI, while the Eaton M90 can be pushed up to 8-12 PSI.
The V3 series therefore offers a wide variation of supported supercharger types commonly found in the Jaguar XJ, the Mercedes Kompressor or the Aston Martin V8 Vintage. While having the potential to retrofit superchargers as the M45 found in the supercharged Mini and the supercharged Mercedes, as well as some M90’s found in the Ford Thunderbirds.

Thanks also go to Scandanavian and New Zealand transplant Hyde who helped with the SC bits from the other side of the world and shared his expert advice and knowledge.” – 3rd on Watkind Glen International, April 2017, American Endurance Races 2017.
I know the work that goes into making something custom like this. That is basically why I’m buying this instead of messing around myself reinventing the wheel.

I first got in touch with Hyde in January 2016 and ordered one of the first editions of the sc-14 kits. Had many great conversations and found Hyde to be very knowledgeable and reasonable. Top bloke to deal with and really glad for what he has brought to the M5x community.
Firstly, what can I say, thanks ever so much for your continued support, from not only yourself, but the whole team and your family for allowing you to invest so much time in the BMW custom tuning scene, you’re support has been invaluable and superb throughout so thank you.
After 4 years of component fitting, re-location and adjustment, the motor is finally running with forced induction from the blower. It has had to me alpha n mapped for the time being as you were spot on regarding the re circulation boost washing out the MAF readings, however the results in the current tune are attached. I went into the mapping session wanting 250bhp (rear wheels), and she achieved 258bhp 300ftlb torque. I am absolutely made up.
Only a couple of complications presented themselves over the last few days of driving. 1 was the maf wash out, which happened on the rollers as we know, so this is currently unplugged whilst motor is Alpha N tuned. Second was a hose blew off, also on the rollers and finally, a slightly longer belt, allowed it to rub on itself, overheating the belt, and causing it to shred / slip within 50 miles of being on the rollers.
Other than these minor issues, the setup, up to now, has behaved brilliantly. A nice pull which feels not to far away from the 3L M3. What a brilliant feeling it is to finally reach what is the major milestone of my e36 build, so very happy.
The more I get into this build, the more impressed I am about the time and effort you spent developing it to get all the mounting points exact. I have mounted the supercharger and it looks good, well sited and clear of the bodywork etc.
A legend Mr. Hyde! Thanks again for your help because without your help this project would not be following through
Thanks you very much for all of your help and support from day one and for going the extra mile when my install didn’t go anyway near planned. I don’t know many companies that would go this far and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it, without it I would be in a very different position right now. Thanks again for all you have done, to me it shows how much you believe in your products and coupled with your excellent customer service I will make sure anyone who asks or is interested in the kit or car knows about Hyde and how you look after your customers, value them and go above and beyond to help.
