ESS Background:

Removed top speed governor is included, and you have the option of stock RPM limit or up to 7400RPM. Power is increased by 10HP when programmed for premium fuel (91US/96Euro).

Custom tuning available on request.

We list the minimal gain you will get with software and no other modifications. However, with intake/exhaust and higher octane fuel, 15-30hp is not unreasonable as a gain.

The VT550 SC system is currently under development, and yes it will sport 550 horses :)

The VT550 system sports a Vortech V2SQ supercharger. It will run at 4.5PSI and will make aproximately 550HP.

It's a very nice setup. It features fully automatic belt tensioning, cast discharge/intake assemblies, etc.

More info and pictures coming in May!
I'm glad to see that you are taking a such a conservative approach with regard to boost in developing your S62 engine project. I'm looking forward to seeing more information as it becomes available.

Will you be able to provide customized packages for cars with e.g. full Supersprint exhaust system (headers, cats, ...)?

How much do you think can be gained above the 550hp with the Supersprint setup?

THANKS!
:applause:

We will be able to tune the software according to your modifications.

I would think a gain of 20-30 HP is reasonable with an exhaust setup. Once we're further along in the production process we'll be able to give you much more concrete answers :).

So according to your original post you're saying that the software tune will give me better engine performance, better fuel economy, AND longer engine longevity?

They will be posted later today.
Mike,

What's the status on ESS? I remember you guys a few years ago and upcoming superchargers for the E36 M3. Never really seemed to get off the ground, no local support, etc. But now I see you are in LA. What support network is there out here on the West Coast?

Sorry don't have the dyno sheets yet.

Local support on the west coast is Los Angeles, as well as Phoenix Arizona. San Diego as well.

ESS is a global company, which has it's primary focus in countries such as Europe and Asia. We have sold thousands of kits worldwide, the majority of which were not in the US. However, we are quickly moving into US territory with the most cutting edge, reliable, and cost effective products.
