Fresh off the vehicle transporter, we didn't waste any time. After a thorough go-over underneath the hood and vehicle scan, we strapped her to the dyno to get our baseline:



Pre-installed Modifications
- Macht Schnell Filter
- Macht Schnell Intake Elbow
- 4.10 BMW Motorsport Differential
- Supersprint Stepped Headers V2
- Custom Performance Euro 200R Section 2
- Rogue El Diablo Exhaust

Results


Now that our baseline has been recorded, a backup will be read from the DME and sent off to ESS for tuning. Within hours, we should have our new F/I file, ready to load after the VT2-500 system has been installed.

Installation has begun:


More to come.

We have used both versions for the E46 M3 over the years. Both systems work well on that platform. On the E9X we do not believe air to air can be done properly without compromise.

During the installation, we noticed that 2 of the 6 coils were badly corroded - recommending new coils/spark plugs as an extra precaution. Maintenance is key.

After the install was completed, we gave her a quick wash and strapped down on the dyno:





Dyno sheets

STD


SAE


Conditions


SAE/BOOST


CSL SMG Transmission software was also flashed as an added bonus.

It's been raining here in SoCal for the past week, which explains the 70% humidity figure. Boost is not reaching full potential (should be 7.5lb), so more power is at tap. We may be switching the pulley for a slightly smaller version as per ESS's recommendation to get slightly higher numbers after adaptation.

ESS has simply been more than supportive through the entire installation, even after hours. This IMHO, speaks volumes for the systems.

Overall, Igrok has been a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. Can wait for round 2.
