A list of our frequently asked questions
How much power can I expect?
The standard M42/M44 engine produces approx. 136/140hp. Although not guaranteed, when the GKD Supercharger Kit is fitted to a standard healthy engine you should expect to receive over 200hp. We generally see around 220hp and some customers with highly modified internals produce nearly 290hp.
Is the GKD Supercharger Kit suitable for left hand drive & right hand drive cars?
Yes, this kit fits both LHD and RHD cars.
Will the GKD Supercharger fit a 6 Cylinder BMW engine?
No, at this time we do not provide supercharger kits for the BMW 6 Cylinder range of engines, only the 4 Cylinder M42 & M44 engines.
What payment methods do GKD accept?
Payments can be made by Paypal, credit card (via Paypal) or Bank Transfer, whichever you prefer. Payments should be made in GBP pounds.
Which cars can you fit the GKD Supercharger to?
Although designed for the BMW E36 318is/Ti and Z3 fitted with the M44 engines, with just a few modifications the GKD Supercharger can also be fitted to the BMW E30 318is and has successfully been fitted to bespoke applications such as retro-fitted M42 or M44 engines in the BMW 2002.
Which Supercharger works with the GKD Supercharger kit?
The GKD Supercharger kit is designed to work with the Eaton M45 Supercharger as fitted to the BMW Mini Cooper S. Please note the Eaton M45 Supercharger fitted to the Mercedes is NOT compatible.
