Yeh saw that list and my first thought was to get an ess but then when I do a bit of research I find issues. Is anyone with a sc able to confirm numbers and reliability?

Have you got an M3 now?

If you come up to Brisbane, Gintani is up this way or down in Melbourne, ESS installs by Southern BM. Both brands seem to have a good reputation, except I'd stay away from the 575hp ess kit because it has no intercooler.

There's a round of gintani installs next month and the owner will be in Australia. You're not too late to make the shipment as far as I know. Time to splash out!?!

Ess don't make a 575 kit any more it's the 585 and FYI the 555 kit is the one that's not intercooled

I believe they do have coding/tuning solutions for aussie/ european cars. Feel free to contact us if you'd like us to look into it.

You're right bro, I meant 535 kit, not 575.

Leigh, how does your 650 go at the track?

Looking at it, the 335 has been great fun but I want a new project.

there was talk that there was a problem with the bov's, such that when lifting off the throttle there was sufficient blow back and a power surge.

But it sounds like its a non event.

Do a search on this forum for our customer reviews and you will get an idea of how reliable our kits are. We have over 550 kits installed worldwide. There are no issues with our bypass.

We have a 750 HP M3 that runs our standard bypass that is included in all of our kits.
