Default New Supercharger on the market?

http://www.eatonm3.com/318super.htm

Does this unit look familiar to anyone?
Looks like they're using the same picture as KO'ss
Or is it the other way around?

Not really, I think I'd spend the money and get a proven system.
Off the subject, do you by any chance know Steve, manager of Mt. Vernon Inn?

Default Midnight Autoworks new on market

Yes, we have a new supercharger kit on the market,
KO supercharger story;
Midnight Autoworks is located in Miami, we built and designed a supercharger kit for the 318 '96-'99 1.9liter that was based on the Downing Atlanta system. We introduced our supercharger system to KO Performance to market and sell our kit due to their large online presence. We provided them with a sample unit to market and sell. They took the unit and decided to copy our system and manufacture it inhouse. They were unable to "copy" our system succesfully, they were using poorly welded backyard made manifolds in order to avoid purchasing the manifolds from us. They did not purchase a license agreement, they simply tried to copy it. KO Performance does not manufacture any other products, they resell for manufacturers. Our product is in no way shape of form the same system KO performance was shipping. We are not affiliated with KO performance.
Midnight Autoworks story;
We began four years ago on this project with our own 1.9L Z3. Since then we have made many revisions to the kit until we we able to produe the system that A) fit the 318 and Z3 B) includes software, 30lbs injectors, 3" hfm not mechanical fuel regulator C) incorporated a water injection kit D) 10 psi safely with 3.1" pulley. We did not have any online presence, mostly local installations and the occasional e-bay listing. After our ordeal with KO Performance we decided to create our own website and market the product ourselves. The website is new and underdeveloped but we plan on making a posting when our website is ready.

We tried to do business with KO performance, but they screwed us over along with destroying the name of our superhcarger. We feel that there is no magic in marketing, a good product will sell itself.

If you have andy Questions or Concerns please Write to sales@eatonm3.com or call Gus at (786) 348-5104
