This V3 Supercharger Kit is an efficient alternative that supports all BMW 6-cylinder M5x and S5x type engines: M50NV/M52/M54/S50/S52/S54.
There are 3 different V3 Supercharger Kits which support 2 different Eaton superchargers:
- The V3.1X Supercharger Kit supports both the Eaton M90 and the Eaton M62 superchargers and requires the use of the Straight Six Manifold. Stock Manifold will not allow fitment
- The V3.2 Supercharger Kit supports the Eaton M90 supercharger and requires the use of the Straight Six Manifold. Stock Manifold will not allow fitment
- The V3.62 Supercharger Kit supports the Eaton M62 supercharger and works with the stock engine manifold (for the V3.62 there is no need for a custom manifold).
Please select below the supercharger you wish to use. The V3.1X supports both the Eaton M90 and the Eaton M62 superchargers, the V3.2 Supercharger Kit supports only the Eaton M90 supercharger, while the V3.62 supports the Eaton M62 supercharger.
V3.1 in stock. V3.2 and V3.62 available on pre-order.
The V3.1X and the V3.2 Supercharger Kits both require the use of the Straight Six Manifold. The stock engine manifold will not allow fitment. The Straight Six Manifold is not included in the kits and has to be ordered separately.
The V3 Supercharger Kits
– include powder coated brackets
– come with a guaranteed 24 months craftsmanship warranty**.
The base V3 Supercharger Kit includes all hardware and pipe work you require to bolt on the supercharger, which is not included in the kit. The V3.1X supports both the Eaton M90 and M62 superchargers, the V3.2 supports the Eaton M90 supercharger, the V3.62 supports the Eaton M62 supercharger. You will have to find your own Eaton Supercharger locally or inquire us to help source one.
The Eaton M45 supercharger as well as different M62 and M90 superchargers may be retro fitted with any of the V3 kits, but are not officially supported by HMW. Please look at the product page for a list of supported supercharger variants.
To complete the installation, you will require the following additional parts:
- a silicone hose kit and hose clamps
- vacuum hose
- an air filter
- an intercooler kit
- larger injectors
- a boost gauge and
- proper tune (reprogrammed ECU or standalone ECU).
All parts (except tune) can be provided by us on request, at extra costs.
For tuning, we suggest the Ostrich II Piggyback for the OBD I (M50 – pre 1995). As for the OBD II (M52/M54 – post 1995) we suggest to remap the ECU flash or dyno tune from 3rd party tuners.
Boost Depending on Supercharger

For all E34, E36, E38, E39 and E46, Z4, Z3 and E30 with M5x or S5x engine swaps. Supports all the 6 cylinder M50/M52/M54 or S50/S52/S54 motors.
For compatibility, you must use small body short snout M62's Commonly found in the Mercedes Kompressor. Other types may require slight modification.
Similarly, if using the M90, it must be the short snout and small body ones from a Jaguar V8 or Aston Martin. You can also use the one found in a Ford Thunderbird but it will require some slight modification to the mounting plate.
