ESS Supercharger kit is now available for INDís full service program



By combining the beautifully engineered ESS Tuning Supercharger kit, IND’s expert paint and finishing work, and the best BMW factory trained technicians in the Chicago area, IND is prepared to offer a comprehensive, full service supercharging program for the E9x M3.

Our client’s cars arrive in a privately owned licensed, insured, and fully bonded trailer. IND’s facility is prepared ahead of time, with an individual lift reserved for each build, and all of the parts on hand well in advance. By consolidating the entire build and order process, IND is able to smoothly deliver the car directly back to our client’s door, fully completed.

The ESS supercharger kit is a true work of art. The kit features an elegance in design that is unique to the market, with a minimalist approach that reduces the component count and ensures a simple and robust kit. The ESS kit is completely reversible, with an impressively small amount of cutting required to fit the air to water cooling system. Just a few small fins of plastic are removed from the lower most grille, and the rest of the kit is fitted to factory brackets and bolts. The ESS kit is an intelligent mix of components produced in house at ESS, and quality off the shelf components by brands like Vortech, Bosch, Koyo, and Continental.

ESS has painstakingly ensured that every bracket, every bolt, and every part are a precision fit into the already tight E9x M3 engine bay, making for “one of the smoothest aftermarket supercharger installs” IND’s expert BMW techs have encountered in their 15+ years of experience with a multitude of other brands.

So it'll basically boil down to the VT1 vs. the VT2-600 since there's only a $500 difference.

More or less. The reason the 575 kit exists is to allow for DCT use. ESS will accommodate any number of more specific needs with regard to desired power output, desired tune, etc... The 575 kit is the kit suggested by ESS for the DCT transmission, and the power level has been modified accordingly.

Thanks! That's the finial pricing that I posted for the ESS IND SC program. We just finished the first kit in house last night. The car is very smooth and powerful. The idle on cold start sounds stock.

INDís ESS supercharging program includes:
-Round trip shipping to and from our facility
-Custom finished intake manifold in any color scheme
-Installation
-Dyno testing of the completed car

What would the estimated door-to-door total downtime be for a strictly hypothetical customer from Houston, TX?

Other than dyno testing, what else does IND do to ensure that all kinks are worked out before the car is shipped back to the customer?

What kind of warranty does ESS offer on these kits and if any problems arose due to an issue with the supercharger during the warranty period, how would that be addressed for out-of-state customers?

Are those prices out-the-door (i.e., include tax, etc.)?

Any fitment issues with an aftermarket bumper, like say the RDSport?

Have I mentioned that I hate you guys?

Shipping is calculated from anywhere in the lower 48, but we can also figure out some shipping rates from Hawaii.

TLud, I know you've seen that we're no strangers to shipping cars out from your neck of the woods.

Indeed. And we know that ramp has plenty of clearance for my bumper.

Is this as good as this special gets? Wish I could afford this

How much without shipping? Maybe I can drive from Ohio to Chicago for this, its maybe a 5 hour drive to there
But than the problem is getting back home unless this is ready relatively quickly
