Infinitas, a BMW performance parts vendor, has announced the coming of an innovative forced induction system named Hybrid Charger, destined to bolster the performance of all Bavaria-made cars with the S55B30 inline-six under the hood.

In its factory form, the three-liter engine has dual turbos and comes with the F8x-gen BMW M3 and M4, as well as the M2 Competition & CS. Its output varies depending on the model, maxing out at 410 PS (404 hp / 302 kW) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque.

Infinitas proposes the introduction of a supercharger in front of the turbo kit to feed pre-compressed air into the system. This necessitates a number of other mods, including longer air ducts, wider cast-aluminum piping, a sports-grade air filter and ECU modifications. However, the resulting powertrain produces noticeably less turbo lag and has much better throttle response overall.

The first tuning kit is already available to order for €6,998, plus €2,112 for the installation. Once installed, it ramps the numbers up to 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft). Four other packages are currently in development, the most powerful one expected to max out at 1,000 PS (986 hp / 735 kW) and 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. It remains to be announced when these four will arrive and how much they will cost.
