ESS Tuning VT1-535 makes another happy customer!

OK, so LONG story short....

1. Bought M3, did tons of research on Superchargers
2. Decided on ESS Tuning VT1-535 for many reasons (Price versus other kits, similar or more power as other kits which are rated higher, low boost for the power it makes, customer service was great from Roman and AJ, etc, etc)
3. Get installed
4. Be VERY happy

Special Thanks to AJ and Roman from ESS Tuning for being awesome and patient with me, and also to Jon at GoodSpeed Performance for doing an unbelievable job installing it! The car is fantastic! More dyno pictures and movies coming soon!

Enough about that, here are the pictures!

I did dyno it, but the correction factor was large due to 100 degree ambient! Hope to dyno it in the winter AND after I install the Akrapovic!
