What's been done to the car from the picture of the engine bay?

Might also be a centrifugal supercharger.

I did not know a car can be both supercharged and turbocharged.

Looks like a big ass procharger.

It needs more orange.

Volkswagen has a 1.4 liter engine that is as well. They call it "twincharging".

It's a BMW 3-series that I would imagine is a hand full to keep on the road.

Umm, there's a sign with all the mods written on it. It takes a bit of squinting but its readable.

I see nothing on that sign about a G Power Supercharger. In fact, it still just says 3.0L Twin Turbo. The "aftermarket" section is harder to read, but it still doesn't say anything appearing to relate to the massive orange thing.

EDIT: In fact, I just figured out what the aftermarket section says... "Intercooler, Dump pipe, Cold air intake, Blow off valves". Nothing about the G Charger.

Unfortunately, it's a BMW.

The sign for that car is to our left. Says "2008 G-Power E92 M3". :yup:

Maybe they 2-staged it?

EDIT: NVM now the correct sign was pointed out.
