Default WMD 456 Supercharger Kit for the M44, M43, M42 Engines (Hyde Motor Works Project)

Welcome back gentlemen!

This will be about the Hyde Motor Works WMD 456 Supercharger Kit project. Made for the 4 Cylinder engines found on the 318Ti, 316Ti, the 318I and the Z3.

About 2 years ago, in the summer of 2019 I bought this little red 318Ti with an M44 Engine. I fell in love with that little car and I decided that our company should supercharge it. The design was undertaken by me and I started a thread titled the ultimate supercharger DIY for the M44, M42 & M43 engines, found here: http://www.318ti.org/forum/showthread.php?t=44651.

Back then, We built 2 SC kits, one based on the AMR500 (for less than 5 PSI) and the other based around the SC14, that would be good for 10-15PSI on our engines, making it the largest displacement blower offered for these cars. There was also a 3rd Kit, that never left the prototype stages. Well, the WMD 456 does just that, it carries on the Legacy of the V4 MOAB and expands on it.

WMD stands Werner M. Designs, Werner is based in Ireland and is one of our engineers who has been working on this project since last year. We plan to come to be able to release this kit by early next year.

The setup uses the Eaton M45 from the BMW Mini & The Mercedes Compressor, along with future support for the Eaton M62 as well. Without much further ado.. Let me present you all with some pictures of the W.M.D. 456.

More information on our projects and products can always be found on https://hydemotorworks.com

Hope you guys enjoy the pictures and development, do let me know what you think. I will add to this thread as we go along!

Ah its easy enough to put it on as it is. If you can change a wheel, you can do this. Just a mater of time. The thing to focus on would be to find a good tuner though.
