New year, new look, new supercharger.



The ESS VT2-625 Supercharger replaces the previous VF620 system for 2013. With all the ESS systems we've been installing in the past 8 months, we also needed to have one of our own to put to the test.

With a heavy track schedule planned, we should be well aware of what the ESS kits are made of.

Installation




A couple of shots her show a prototype replacement intake runner was machined in-house and houses the boost pressure and secondary IAT sensor for datalogging/monitoring. Two versions will be released shortly, which will make it easier for thsoe looking for individual-based runner methanol injection or auxiliary sensor mounting.

Comparison of ESS Intake Runner and EAS w/ additional IAT/Boost sensors

Completed Shots




With less than 100mi clocked on the new kit, we're still getting used to the newfound power. And wiping that sh*t-eating grin off our faces every time the boost kicks in.

More to come.
