are you going to dyno the car after you break her in? I'd be interested to see what the ESS kit puts down with the SS headers!

Great stuff so far, glad to see you killed an E55 last night too!

The driver of the E55 must have been fuming after you walked him. Not to mention your license plate. Nice kill.

Well said Raza! That is my experience exactly....tried hard to explain it earlier. Just loads of power...no surprises. Aj did a great job with his tuning on this kit...I think that is what really makes it so driveable. Anyone can slap a blower on...


Just WAIT til you get those headers back on!!!!

Glad you like it Brother


Brian

PS...I plan on a dyno soon...still waiting on the "new" (smaller) pulley. DME has adapted well to the SS headers
