Then you have to go the back of the line...

USA customers first.

What if you are running catless?

Will there be any separate program flashes for those people...or will you have to revert back the stock exhaust to fit this new supercharger to the car?

BTW: Can I get a special discount...
You can run whatever exhaust you want. Several of the designs we have seen should net you added power over the stock system. If you run a catless or high flow system we can remove the CEL that is thrown by most.

Which air intake sources are you utilizing? Front grill, anything else?

The black intake plenum looks very clean and offers a stock like appearance

Thanks JJ

I'm not going to get one, but am curious if you're talking about a completely stock motor being safe for all that power. With a stratospheric 12:1 CR, I was under the impression no amount of boots is safe. If it is, it's great to know how overbuilt our motors are. I thought it was pretty close to its limits as it is. Thanks.

Cool, so you have more than one standard FI software tune ready to go day one?

That would be great.

You could extract more power than someone with a bone stock M3.

Just want to be clear that ESS FI tuning philosophy takes this into consideration from the very beginning, and they actually dyno tune the FI software with these aftermarket mods in mind.

Or are we talking about the S65 ECU's 'adaptation' capability that will accommodate (somewhat) to your aftermarket exhaust mods anyway?

We use the front air intake located on the driver side for our system.

Our supercharger software has been designed to adapt to high flow exhaust systems. Writing a custom tune for every exhaust system on the market would not be possible. For our customers that have kits installed local we can always provide custom exhaust tuning if needed.

Okay, that's what I thought.

It seems as though ESS has made allowances with the tuning parameters, to accommodate the customers who have already made a substantial investment in aftermarket exhaust modifications. You would just need a custom tune to extract ALL the power out of those exhaust mods.

We are going to keep the number small only 5-10 total. We will cut it off once we feel we have the right number.

Finally, a thread in this section that doesn't have to do with "What exhaust should I get?" I really want to get this next spring.

This kit looks like a winner.

Too bad no current resident of Arizona can participate in the early trials...
