Supercharged ESS VT1

This week I had an ESS VT1 supercharger and Macht Schnell test pipes installed. Everything has been as advertised so far. Things seem the same until you let loose. Then you can really feel and hear the added power.

Want to thank Nate @ IND for his help. As usual all my questions were answered in a timely and understandable fashion. The paint job was perfect. I was kept updated during the entire process. I have always been impressed by the professionalism of this company and their reputation is well deserved.

I also want to thank Chris at Heads Up Motorsport here in Spartanburg SC for doing the installation. Everyone at the shop was impressed with the quality of the ESS kit.

Now I just hope this will keep me happy for awhile

Here are a few pictures

Congrats! We just completed a VT2-625 system/Macht Schnell Track Pipe installation on our side, showing a whopping 200whp gain, on 91 octane!

Really interested in seeing your results when you get a chance to visit the dyno.

You non supercharged people will not be jelous if you get a new m3 and see the total dominance. Something about aftermarket, no matter what you throw on there, just rarely can match the new oem stuff. IE the new M5. You can drive a blown m3 all day long but get a new m5 stock, let a lone a tune and it blows the doors off.

New m3 will be faster and better than charged with a simple tune and the thrust will be even greater.
