Good thread with some good info. Although a lot of posts with people just jumping the gun...I agree, a showdown between the 2 cars will be good. So how do we validate that the cars are completely off the shelf?
I don't think it matters if the kits are off the shelf to be honest. Any of the VT625 we installed will match up well against ANY of the other systems.

Me too, please elaborate.

Our ESS 650 E60 M5 is also amazing and can be very intimidating although I wish there was some more midrange, part throttle boost available...however, the S85 is no torque monster (neither is my S54). Racing you have a valid point, but who spends all day above 5k? Going back to my statement of both kits having its advantages and disadvantages.
I get what you are trying to say but its irrelevant unless you compare these blowers on the same platform. You just compared a Inline 6 motor and a V10 motor. The blowers are going to behave completely different, we both know that.

Good job to both companies and keep up the good work! I just can't wait to see built motors left right and center on these boards......and all this V8 FI talk is making me hunt on Autotrader all day long.[/quote]
