Somewhere in the same range or maybe a tick better than a stroker. These numbers will improve with the finalizing of thee tuning, intercooling, exhaust and possible options of increase boost (though I probably wouldn't push it with stock internals) and meth injection.
Once again looks very nice. The curve isn't real steep as with SC'ing usually only max hp at screaming high rpms.
Look forward to see more results.

Should be fine but obviously only time will tell. I say as long as boost is kept no higher than 6 psi the internals shouldn't be strained to any concerning degree. Must add though the S85 is a totally different animal than any other engine in this line from BMW.
G-Power has been successful with their set up.
Other big name tuners/engine builder like Underground Racing and Heffner have been very successful with high tech engines, ie. Lambo V10 and V12's along with Ferrari. They have bolt on kits though these are TT set ups.
I recall reading in the other ESS SC thread that Asbjorn was hoping to put 50K miles on the test vehicle to ensure solid reliability before releasing the kit. That might be one reason why it's not expected to come to market till late spring or early summer.
