550 - 700 Horse power on Built Engines Using TVS Superchargers
400 - 550 Horse power using M122H Superchargers
14 - 18 PSI Intercooled Out of the Box With M122H Supercharger
Over 20+ PSI boost with TVS & Twin-Screw Superchargers
Boost can be limited to 9PSI for Stock Street Engines
HMW KC M1
Supports: BMW 6 Cylinder M50, M50TUB, M52, M52TUB, M54, S50, S52 Engines
This setup makes use of the Notorious Eaton M122H Supercharger Found on the Mustang GT500 which is OEM capable of flowing 650HP or adding an extra 300+ HP to your usual M5x – S5x Motor. This project was a realization of a vision, led by Hyde Motor Works and Keith Caldwell of KC Design Concepts, since February 2017 and showcased on Bimmerfest East 2017. This is also to be featured in the American Endurance Races.
Fully Option-able, Can be sent as a complete package on with the HMW S.S. Manifold, as well as custom piping and intercooler. This is a serious setup that will blow you away, puts out a bar of boost out of the box but you can limit the boost to 10PSI using the blowers factory bypass valve, and to push this to its full potential 15PSI – 25PSI you need a built motor. On an Stock Engine we recommend turning the boost down using our by pass valve relocator.
Warranty: 48 Months*

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
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
