I am posing this question to get some basic guidance / general recommendations regarding a project I am thinking of.
I might get some hate from purists, but come on, give a guy a break. I am just trying to be creative and appreciative of things I like.
I want to build a 1968 Pontiac...
Hi guys, I'm selling some parts left from my ESS S/C kit because I went to another route.

2) Used ESS 5.7" crank pulley - $290
3) Used ESS discharge tube predrilled for meth nozzles with...

If you have an ESS kit and want to convert to a TiAL (or other) blow off valve, then you'll need to delete the original supplied hardware.
This kit will block off the flange on the discharge pipe, and plug the hole on the intake tube that's used for air recirculation. The discharge pipe plate...
Specifically looking for F/I tuners. Ones that can tune either locally or remotely where the customer is to rent dyno time while the tuner works via TeamViewer, Skype, etc..
Too many people have come and gone for this platform and some are still around but I wouldn't bother using.
Who can you...
It's that time. We're putting the RPi E60 M5 up for sale. If you're looking for a serious powerhouse vehicle here's your chance.
This is a single-owner, very well taken care of 2006 Silver Gray M5. It's been in no accidents. The front bumper was never drilled for a license plate. The vehicle...
I currently have a 2002 Emola Red son of a gun. She has 76000mi. I plan to install S/C (VF, ESS, not ebay Inc.) by Spring of 2016.
Just trying to see who is installing what & at what mileage.
And if any, what preventative procedures are recommended before S/C? (apart from appropriately rated...
I just received my VT1-560 Supercharger System from ESS Tuning in July. Before I had the chance to install it, my car developed rod knock due to a spun bearing (see thread on this board). At this time, most of my options for repairing the car are quite expensive. At the very bottom of my list...

Vortech V-2 S-Trim Supercharger.
Under 4,000 miles on it. Pulley has a nick on it from sitting in storage but you will probably want a pulley specific to your application anyway. A few light scuffs from regular handling, never dropped. A nice polish will bring it back to it's intended shine...
It's about my M3 Turbo Bi Turbo.. it may still want something to convert it to then prepare for the respective motorsports..
It's about a supercharger conversion of VorTech ...
supposedly it will work .. well if that's true? ..

Will post better pictures later.
Thanks to the Vorsteiner guys and Roman at ESS, top quality products from both of them!!!
Ok, so i'm sure things similar have been posted about this but i'll post this again for us new to the M5Board. Ok, ESS tuning says up to a 150 horsepower increase is possible, first of all is this possible? Second of all, i'm 16 and although that seems young i've been working on my dads cars and...
I'm new to the board and have read about the issues with the B5/B7 superchargers. I know there was a clutch fix for the earlier builds, but how has everyone's experience been with them since? As posted previously, I'm new to the board and am looking to buy a 2007 B7 in the US. BMW NA doesn't...
