AUTOTalent Visits Tecnocraft Facilities
Monday, February 1, 2010

Same@Autotalent made his way to our facilities to showcase the G-Power Supercharged E9X ///M3. Needless to say the vehicle is blisteringly quick with linear acceleration feel. When rounding off the kit, we had noticed that the wet laid carbon bits in the engine bay (in place of the OEM intake box) match up quite well with our dry carbon products when paired together.

Many of the TECNOCRAFT E9X ///M3 Dry Carbon bits are compatible with numerous aftermarket supercharger setups and intake systems to provide "complete looks" under the hood.
Upcoming developments surround the E9X ///M3

We have also just finished finalizing the design of the E9X ///M3 Auxiliary Access Cover (left engine bay) and the E9X ///M3 Headlight Access Covers (pair) which have made their way to our composites division. Production pieces should be appearing shortly for our development vehicles and new product photos will be available as soon as possible. It is speculation with TECNOCRAFT staff that the headlight access covers will be compatible with all E9X 335i 3-series' as well.

Details: TECNOCRAFT E9X ///M3 Auxiliary Access Covers & Headlight Access
-100% Dry Carbon construction
-OEM form-fitting to space and extremely low profile design.
-Designed with quick and easy removal (non-joined to high torque bolted hardware)
-Comes in a L/R pair to complete the look and/or accent the engine bay with carbon bits.

Pricing details and production pieces coming soon!
Major BMW Product Development Update!
Friday, January 15, 2010

As development continues on the E9X M3 platform, TECNOCRAFT staff has since released a few new and exciting products. The ENVY system is finally complete as consumers can readily core exchange their OEM (complete) BMW Intake Manifolds to be outfitted and equipped with the ENVY Intake Manifold Cover.

Details: TECNOCRAFT E9X M3 ENVY Equipped Manifold
-100% Dry Carbon Construction using HMR (Honeycomb Matrix Reinforced) center core allows an extremely solid strength increase.
-Extra volume, capacity increase of over .45liters (largest available)
-100% bolt-on fitment to OEM locations and mounting positions.
-TECNOCRAFT Strength Rods are fully CNC-machined (T6 aircraft grade aluminum) to spec in order to support height/volume increase within the manifolds.
-Design heritage from OEM BMW M3 style cues (///M power bulge hood and Z4 ///M rear).
-ENVY System FINAL Centerpiece: Function and Form to complete performance and aesthetic appeal of E9X ///M3 Intake Development.

NOTE: ENVY Equipped manifolds CANNOT be reverted back to stock as the ENVY Intake Manifold Cover is not a 'simple cover over the OEM unit'. OEM Manifolds are carefully taken apart and outfitted with the ENVY Manifold Cover with extremely high durability, high eat aircraft grade epoxy. Unit must be installed and or epoxied together with extreme care in order to avoid mechanical issues with the vehicle pre and post-installation.

***Dynamometer tests and upcoming performance track days are scheduled in order to verify gains and durability of this product. Stay tuned.***

[DYNO VIDEO] Tecnocraft E9X M3 Envy Intake System
Tuesday, November 17, 2009

A few cold, hard facts, to keep in mind when taking in this dyno information:

-Gintani Motorsports (GINTANI) is based in Van Nuys, CA and has increasing brand reputation for building beautiful, reliable and downright powerful supercharger systems for BMWs, and specifically ///M3s of all flavors. Dyno runs were completely supervised by Gintani owner, Alex, with a few other key eyewitnesses to the dyno runs. Upon arrival, Alex immediately stated, "Good luck on my dyno."

-Dynos were performed with only two kinds of filters, stock and aFe, a BMC filter was not attainable at time of dyno, and to our shock was left out of the dyno tests (even though it is blatantly advertised with the ENVY™ system package).

-After dyno calibration, verified by Alex to be correct against the 3 other E9X ///M3s that were at the location, the car was cooled for 30 minutes.

-Dyno runs were then performed ALL in a row, with matching "cool times" between each series of runs when changing intake parts.

-The video was filmed completely straight through, but edited to be under 6 minutes.

TECNOCRAFT E92 ///M3 Project - A Performance Oriented Buildup
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
///M cars are solidly built, though we've found lots of room for improvement. This is a performance oriented Tecnocraft build as we're looking to revamp the entire M3 intake system for more horsepower, less heatsoak, and 100% dry carbon.

The general working area...

Upper hood intake vent to modified airbox top cover...

Modified kidney grille intake system, hi-flow, direct ram air scoop through, while maintaining adequate cooling to radiator...

High volume modified airbox top cover from upgraded intake pipe to enlarged intake transition 'bubble'.

One piece, drop-in hi-flow kidney grille ram air scoop assembly.

Blocking the organic-shaped bubble transition from airbox to intake manifold.

More to come soon. Please follow along in our thread at LUXURY4PLAY.COM.
