ESS-625 Self-install, DCT GTS Software and TX vs SoCal shops

I know I am late to the party, but here is my supercharger story for those interested =)

I mod my car in steps. I like enjoying every new mod I do and when I get bored again I do yet another mod =)

My modding path was largely track oriented, but I came to a point when NA motor power levels were just not enough… With the usual full list of NA engine mods, I did ‘SAE’ 387 RWHP, 279 torque on EAS dyno, 91 pump gas on EAS dynojet. Attached here (first out of three).

After much debate, I decided to give supercharger a try. Roman @ ESS gave me a good deal. Initially, I opted for VT2 ESS-575, but while my kit was in transit, I promptly called ESS and upgraded to 625 kit. Roman sent me a new pulley and belt.

I installed supercharger myself with a buddy of mine in his garage. The install is not very complicated.

The rest in pictures..

Back to stock and loving it!
