SUPERCHARGER KIT E92 M3 500Kw 600nM

I have been thinking about supercharging.......
I am looking hard at the ESS 575 kit, and Nate at IND has been assisting me with the information. Always a pleasure dealing with you Nate!!

RGM is a tuner in SA, that has developed their own kit, take a look at the stats

RGM had a few of their own threads on here back in the day and we don't know a lot about their kit
But the kit seems overly complicated and of lesser quality than almost everything else out there. I don't like the fit and finish either and I'm sure mostly nobody around has heard of, or had experience with RGM as a company

Keep in mind you can deal with ESS in Norway or Gpower in Germany for proven customer service track records

ESS

They will work with you between the U.S. and Norway locations. As PandaMonic said too, GPower could hook you up from their Europe location.

Best of luck at any rate !

26K you gotta be out your Damn mind ......
that thing looks like a Match Box car...

Plus if your willen ( Baller Status ) or have that much to spend i would do pistons , Rods & lower the compression and have ESS do a Stage 3 and and get 700 to 800 Reliable power

Agreed. They're definitely on something if they think they can justify that price.

Gintani is also good. Check them out as well before you make your decision. Saw two of their cars on the track this weekend and they were both incredible.

+1. Looks like it was made in someone's garage with Earl's fittings.

lol @ this thread... I would say go with ESS Andrew. At the end of the day it is a rather small price to pay for piece of mind.

Exactly all the fittings are stuff you can pick out of ANY auto parts store bins.
Like what the Civic guys do that go in and piece together their own intakes.

Unless they had Jesus come down from heaven and make their tune I wouldn't trust this thing
