Now I see why Velos started this... Did Omar call you to reply because it seems you have not been on these boards in months.

You came here telling us you blew your transmission when racing at high speeds. We had the engine looked over and documented by a BMW master tech and found that the engine was seized due to failure of oil lubrication. You were here for every step of the process.

This was not a s/c or tuning related problem this was a lubrication issue. End of story!

From what I've seen the ESS VT625 kit targets .83 lambda, so unless they have decided to lean this out, it should theoretically be around 12.2:1 at redline.

(Another note, I didn't look to see if this was a VT625 dyno, maybe if it was a 600 or 535 they are running higher targets. Regardless of the kit, I think leaner than the stock targets is the wrong way to go).

Way too many AA vs ESS supercharger threads. I'm genuinely interested in what the eVolve system will do.

Jean, do you by change have an AFR reading from the AA dyno you posted in the OP? I would be curious to see what their fueling looks like.
The ESS VT625 kits have been posted several times with dyno charts. It would made clear that we did not "tighten" the clamp down on sniffer so we wouldn't damage the exhaust. A/f was fine during all runs/ testing, cars were also tested several months after install as a follow up and all is well.

Andrew,

Lunch on me whenever you want, no street racing or anything like that... just pointers for the forum. Thats not the way to speak to someone that spent over $15k with you.

really no lubrication right, when you drained the motor it had ample quarts of oil right?

Sorry to hear about your car man.
I took my motor apart @ 50,000 miles to build a VT3 ,2008 M3 and i can assure you there is not an oil pump failure or bad bearings in these motors as some SC companies out there claimed after blowing multiple motors.
Its called TUNING blew you motor.
When you have a tune thats not 100% and starts detonating,the pistons start taking all the abuse and pound on the bearings causing wearing and after a while they fail.

I call BS on this one Andrew !
If you are speaking about lubrication issues with the S65 motor,clearly you never seen an S65 apart !
Told you a while back to worry about the blown motors and stop attacking other companies.

Interesting that it says that on the site. A friend of mine with an 08 inquired with Roman @ ESS his concern about fitting their kit to his car, and Roman replied that if he plans on doing the VT600 or lower kit, that it should not have any issues. So it appears that the step from the 600 to the 625 would call for new bearings? Seems like the 600 might be on the edge then for 2008 cars? I'm curious as I'm planning to supercharge mine at some point, but I have a lovely 12/07 build because I bought the M3 the first week it hit the floor.

Aside from that, you guys all really need to stop fighting and focus on making your own products better!

I can care less about what is posted by anyone.
I'm talking from my own experience. I worked on my motor myself,i took every piece apart with my hands and all the parts were inspected by the best .
I drove my car with a SC for 35,000 miles and did 200MPH runs on daily basses going home. So please,not just for you but for every SC company out there. STOP WITH THE BEARING AND OIL PUMP FAILURE BS PLEASE !

A year ago , please there were other reason i kept quite and the owners there might no why . But really don't care anymore and your helping me careless. Don't even know if you worked there or your someones puppet right now.

Very simple i dropped 20k on my car with AA and its blew up you got some lame as report from some no body who god knows you paid to make the report in your favor. ( its funny active knows blow up specialist wonder why)

So now your saying I am the only 2012 E92 m3 that had oil pump failed and I just happen to have an AA full kit on ? This is what your staying correct? So the other 5 AA blown cars also had faulty oil pumps ? For those poor guys or AA excuses was they were all stick and over revved now with me you cant say this as i was DCT ! I think you have one on your lift with a nice wide body kit post that picture of BOOM!

Very simple my care detonated over and over and front two rods melted to the crank . I showed this to real tuners and all laughed said who tuned your car ! Simple you guys got me for 20k its all good what goes around comes around . EAD

let the excuses start sorry


Email form you fearless leaders FYI and for everyone :

Mike himself and scrappy told me when i was in the engine room that the oil levels were perfect because you guys drained all the oil, but now your telling me its not? And i did an oil change in December

Do you have any record of the last time the oil was changed, we have no records of car since installation of kit in 8/2011.We are also having Analytical Technologies do a detailed report on the probable cause of the engine failure.We will keep you informed as soon as we get the results.

and I had the first reply in this thread and it was deleted; no offense but this board is biased to the vendors as if they are the end all be all; this is a public forum and it's quite obvious Velos is against AA yet a year ago they were repping them hard... What a joke.. That first post is like a kids guide to boost. There's no tech info in there at all.

mentioning an Air to Air kit has charge pipe length and pressure drop, etc. But never providing any actual measurements.

From our understanding and knowledge the ESS software is designed to target low 11’s to high 12’s based on conditions and load. The higher the EGT, oil temps, load etc…the vehicle is experiencing the richer the AFR. When a vehicle is cool and is in more ideal conditions the software will adjust to run leaner in order to make more power. This is why when you see dyno’s of the ESS kits the AFR’s will often vary. Along with the fact that tail sniffers are sometimes off a bit. (ESS please correct me if I am wrong)

I'm sorry but saying ESS correct me if I'm wrong really makes me specualate @ your tuning ability. I for one would not feel comfortable with a sniffer that's "off" a little as this is the line between running good and a rod thrown out the side of the block. Also I wouldn't feel comfortable running boost on this car w/ AFRS anywheres' near 12; I 'd rather run the car a little fatter to be safe. Esp in South Florida

Just adding a little info here on charge cooling with strict respect to the F10 M5.

The cooling abilities of this setup on this car are pathetic to say the least. We extensively road and dyno tested the first F10 in the country. The power drops very much after just one pull. In addition to that you can feel the fall off in power on the road after just two or three 3rd gear pulls.

If anyone cares to speak to just one OEM engineer you will get one response - its done for cost reasons and packaging. Also, OEM like to run the engines hotter now as it gives better emissions. You will see this also on older models.

Charge coolers on the whole are not a bad solution with respect to packaging. Our own supercharger kit was going to be based on a very elaborate charge cooler setup with twin cores which were very deep and wide. However, the results with respect to consistent power using various cores and even a remote system showed to be inferior to a well designed intercooler core with correctly flowed end tanks.

Bare in mind that we are not talking about comparing state of the art charge coolers to some crappy intercooler core. We are talking about comparing state of the art charge coolers to state of the art intercoolers such as HS Marstons and cores very similar to it.

Kit comparison cannot be just done on a dyno for a few glory pulls. Anyone can let the inlet temps get just above ambient and do a run. Even a mediocre charge cooler / intercooler will suppress a temperature rise for just one run.

Kit comparison is really carried out in real world conditions.

Any decent tuner will know how temperature sensitive the S65 is especially when bolting on a blower! Not only is temperature suppression a key element in a setup but also how quickly the system recovers once under load for sustained periods of time. Recovery rates and temperature are hardly ever discussed on these forums as this requires us to go to the next level of understanding. It seems 'peak hp' is the only important thing these days and dyno's do all the selling.

Intercooler placement and boost pipe / tract length - A good core will actually not require a huge amount of air to pass over it to be efficient. How quickly the heat is dissipated also played a large role. Of course I expect every one of the tuners from their vast experience and actual real world testing to appreciate that the frontal section of the E9x actually pulls air in from the front so essentially any charge cooler heat exchanger or intercooler will have air dragged out from behind it at quite some velocity irrespective of it being behind the bumper.
I am sure comments about blocking the coolant radiator could have been mentioned and again the core type plays a vital role here. Some cores (HS Marstons) actually accelerate the air as it passes over over the intercooler fins!

Some of the comparisons made are very good between the kits but I think it would be much more fair to compare all kits to each other rather than pin point one particular kit.

There is enough information on the VF kit for example. What about the monster G Power kits with their incredible mid range power?

What ever the intention of this thread is, I am going to ignore all negativity and even remote accusations. Let's see if this forum has enough class to rise above the previous nonsense and actually put out unbiased and helpful information.

Put the bashing and hate to one side, let's forget the sales and just for once give a thought to the people who used to enjoy coming onto this forum and enjoying being what we all hopefully are....hardcore BMW enthusiasts!

Time for me to go out for a near midnight drive in the white hammer

Sorry, this is not the way it works at all.

The VT625 targets .83 lambda at redline. That's 12.2:1 roughly.

We're talking about too lean here, not too rich.

The full throttle lambda aim 8x1 map is simply based on RPM while at WOT.

The car is not going to adjust when it's cool and run LEANER than what the targets are set to to make more power. This map is designed to set the targets period, and the DME will do a number of things to try and achieve those targets. It's going to try and hit the set targets period.

Sal, people don't mention the heat and recovery issues cause it's assumed that whoever is tuning the car is accounting for these issues.

I don't care what you're using, these BMW (all of them) run very hot, and this alone is a big factor w/ detonating. Couple that with a tune on kill, and boom



To the other guy who's engine blew, I have no dog in this fight, but just cause your car had oil in it when they drained it does not mean it didn't have an oiling issue. You can lose oil pressure w/ a full sump.

Wonder what would happen if I jumped in...
I'm too busy working though. Y'all have fun with this, as pointless as it is.
Good job Velos, once again slapping the hand that fed you for years...
