FS (in Bay Area): ESS VT535 Supercharger (Black Edition manifold)



I mentioned a few months ago that I was planning to put this kit on sale, but it is now officially off of the car. I've put almost 10k miles on the kit and it's been running great since day one. I'm selling because I'm not that happy with the kit at the track, but I love it on the street. With that said I should mention that I've been extremely impressed with how the kit handles heat at the track. My temps have always been normal even when driven at the track in 104 degree weather. I'll compare temps with the NA M3's and our temps have always been the same. It's pretty impressive (at least to me).

I'm selling this kit for $4900. You'll have to buy the software direct from ESS. I think this is a pretty good deal considering you are also getting the polished black manifold which is a $1000 upgrade when new. I've already placed an order for a brand new air filter so you'll be good there. I'm also ordering a new intake hose and supercharger oil so you'll have everything you need aside from the software.

Feel free to ask any questions about the kit here or via PM. Local buyers only because I don't want to deal with shipping and I prefer the buyer to inspect the kit before purchasing when spending this kind of cash.

Can you chime in a little on this kit. Everyone knows they will need the software/tune and install.

What else if anything can be done for this kit to upgrade it to a more powerful kit? People have speculated that an upgraded pully can be added from the new kit version. I thought I recalled you telling me before that the manifolds are different and therefore it cant really be upgraded. Perhaps I misunderstood. Can the intercooler be added to the 535 or is it completely unnecessary and a waste of money? Thanks

Also GLWS... this is such a good price.

You will need to buy software from us for any kit that is being moved to a new owner / car. The most power this kit can make is 550 hp. This requires a new belt / pulley and tune VS the VT1-535 setup.

I like how the seller is being honest about why he is selling and wanting someone to inspect the kit before purchasing. Sounds like a great guy. If I was not a poor M3 owner I would be all over this kit . Actually if my factory warranty was over I would have seriously thiought about it.

GLWS OP as this is a beautiful kit!

We installed this kit on Mark's car and it recently was removed.

All the parts were inspected and are in good shape and can be installed on the next car.

GLWS Mark!
