ESS Tuning - NA Tuning software now available! - Special Pricing

ESS Tuning - NA Tuning software now available!


ESS Tuning has shown what they can do with a supercharger on the E9x M3 in the past year. As you know the results and attention to detail in their kit is unmatched. Included with their Supercharger kits is an ECU flash. Customers have enjoyed not only HUGE gains in performance with this, but perfect ECU functionality and OEM scan tool compatibility.

Their talented tuning staff now has a full range of ECU flashes for all the NA purists out there! The same attention to detail shown in all aspects of ESS products and flashes is reflected once again in the Natural Aspirated M3 tunes.

ESS Normal Aspiration optimized ECU software is a result of 100's of dyno runs and exact calibration of all parameters to allow maximum performance gains with improved drivability/fuel consumption and stock engine longevity.

Features :

-Optional 8500 RPM limit
-Removed top speed governor
-Reprogrammed torque management
-Reprogrammed throttle response
-Reprogrammed ignition, vanos and fuel parameters for optimum performance
The software is compatible with performance cat-back exhaust systems.

Software available for both US and European specification cars.

Typical performance increase is +15hp and 10ft/lbs of torque with software alone on quality 91US/95 Euro octane fuel. Gains in both horsepower and torque are seen across the entire powerband making the new found power usable in all situations from daily driving to on the circuit.



When you order this product, you will receive information on how to remove your ECU for shipment to a ESS in North America. Each customer pays for domestic shipping to ESS by means of their choice. Overnight return shipping is included in the ECU flash pricing from GT Motoring ( international customers please contact me for rates )

Do you have a before/after dyno chart for the full Akra system with your software? I'm interested.

Thasks.

I am seriously considering the full Akra system + ESS software, so I would love to see the dyno charts! Also, is there a bundle price for the full Akra + ESS tune?

I will get the dyno sheet from ESS today for the Akra specific tune. I will PM you a quote for a package deal. We can provide Akrapovic exhausts as well.

Thanks much!

Here is the tune with the Akra evolution specific tune. It has the most improvement in the low end where typically the Akra performs the same as stock or worse, it now has solid gains even at 2k rpm from changes in timing and cam angle.

Thanks.

Most states just do an OBD2 ecu scan for codes, so the car would pass with flying colors. I dont have any personal data on the akra's cats not passing a sniffer in cali.

Thanks.
The Akrapovic specific tune was custom tailored to the full evo system. Normally the bottom end power on the M3 suffers a little once you install the full Akrapovic exhaust. There is a dip in power in the low 1500-3500 range in the powerband. With the custom tune for the akrapovic exhaust you will see gains not only over stock, but over a standard ess NA tune as well. the entire RPM range has been optimized for the best performance.

What happens if the dealer overwrites the tune during service? Can the dealer detect the tune?
