Anyway, may I say the pull is just so smooth and constant! like continually being pushed back into my seat, I really have to get used to this. Drives like stock. idles like stock no codes! Very solid kit, if you are looking at supercharging just do it VFE is a great option.
CONGRATS! I have the same kit and I love it. I've taken it to the track 3x now and no issues with it.

Good luck
How do you reach that conclusion ? /\ ?
Because both units use same blower and put out near identical whp Is the reason why I figured the tune may be an off the shelf generic tune. It was a sime question but yet you infer I am not satisfied with my kit and advise me to change it. .

For starters VF kits don't put out similar whp to ESS's , next...all are not created equal , ESS has different injectors and hardware, mainly manifold design.

Correction. My Vf kit puts out power then my friends ess kit which is rated 10 hp. Both cars with full exhausts. Both kits were purchased at the same time for comparison reasons. Both cars dyned at the se time on the same fuel and exact same dyno. Sorry if I don't believe what you think you know, but my facts are proven. Addionally, we had a AA Stsge 2 kit dyno on the same dyno as us and put down 20 hp less then our kits. My opinions are based on true dyno numbers on the same dyno. Everyone knows each dyno will produce different measurement depanding on calibration, temp and other factors.
Let me guess. Now all aa guys are Gona jump on this one ...

OP. sorry about this and congratulation on your newly found addiction

I don't know when this turned into a who has the best kit war, but I know I enjoy the VF kit, if I bought the ESS kit I probably would've enjoyed that also and so forth...

Congrats and nice work with the DIY! I hate these threads though because I'm totally satisfied with my stock E90 but then I see this and suddenly I'm less satisfied...

If I wanted to get into this with you and the rest of sc community I would have posted my Dyno sheets for the many Dyno runs we did with FBO, stock with sc, and sc with slip on and sc with just xpipe and sc with full exhaust. I have decided to keep the results to our selfs because of biased comments like yours !!
All kits are amazing and run strong.
