Here are some findings on the Active Autowerke E46 M3 SC with the PRIMA + and various other BETA setups. Kudos to the guys at Tuning Tech FS for their diligence in helping massage the power gains from this unbelievable SC set-up.
The Prima Dynojet results showed 426 WHP on 5.8 psi of boost. Amazing but more to come.
Going to the upgraded Prima Plus kit with methanol injection and 9.0 psi of boost raise the output to 514 WHP on a Dynojet. Unbelievable.
Active is adding a Prima Elite supercharger kit to the range. The pricing and details are not yet finalized but Tuning Tech FS is already tuning the setup.
The Prima Elite and Prima Plus both run 9 psi of boost but the Prima Elite is running E85 fuel instead of 93 octane and meth. The Prima Elite on E85 manages another 31.7 peak wheel horsepower over the Prima Plus with torque gains through the curve.
We're waiting on further details as the R&D process is wrapped up but these are solid gains over what already is a solid supercharger kit:
For the BMW E46 M3 SC running on WA/Meth, here is something different.
Individual direct port injection for your methanol. Custom fabrication with re-sized meth nozzles ending into a custom Meth housing. Only some lines visible for a super clean install.
Better atomization to each individual cylinder, and precise fluid delivery for that optimum performance.

BMW E92 M3 normally aspirated being tuned on the Active Autowerke in house dyno.
Running on RON 93 octane and equipped with open exhaust, larger headers and a drop in air filter, this BMW E92 M3 showed some good horsepower figures considering the high parasitic nature of the Mustang Dyno.
Measured 402 WHP vs. 329 WHP of a bone stock E92 M3 on the same dyno. That's a 73+ WHP gain.
Do the math counting the drive line loss to recalculate the ponies at the engine crankshaft.
That's some serious horsepower either way you look at it.
