Customer Service ... Roman delivers as promised:

So as I had stated in my first post on page one, I decided to start the prep work for the supercharger early so I could send my DME out and have it back in time for install. I had checked with Roman to make sure that the kit and DME would get back to me in time for my next two days off. It looked as if I was going to have enough time to sleep with my manifold for a few nights before my next two days off. Well everything was going as planned until FedEx had created some delays for us I started to stress a little because I was on a tight time frame

Roman and I had called each other a few times to see what would be the best option to the delay problem we were facing. Roman insured me that he would do everything he could to make sure he would deliver as promised! A few hours later I got a PM from him with a few tracking numbers for my boxes. Roman had shipped out a new kit that very same day so that I would not have to wait for a follow up from FedEx

As many of you all know that MFEST is right around the corner and for vendors its a crazy busy time. With that in mind I was not expecting Roman to ship out the box that soon. I was actually expecting the kit to arrive next week so I was already making changes to my work schedule. Right as I was getting off work today my wife had called to tell me that a box came in. I was so happy you could probably see my smile a mile away When I got home I found a nicely packed box with half of the supercharger kit. Your probably thinking just half the kit? Not to worry ... The other half is on its way. Roman made sure to send a few things he had at his shop so that I could continue the install.

Itís really not ESS nor FedEx's fault but my own. You could say Iím like a kid in a candy store! I want everything and I want it now! So my advise to everyone who is planning on doing this yourself ... Make sure you give yourself enough time just in case things get delayed. Make sure you have a back up car just in case of delays (I have a daily driver). Most importantly for those that live in a condo, make sure you have a safe and secured location for your car to be worked on.

... Thank you again Roman for your awesome customer service
Congrates and I'll tell you guys Roman is really a good guy , I asked him lots of things about the supercharger and he always replys quick with proffesioncy. ROMAN WAIT FOR MY ORDER THIS WEEK

serious question though..where are you going to run this thing?
I love Hawaii but I remember when I went there I asked myself "If I lived here where would I drive?"
It seemed to me like all the roads were twisties throughout the whole Island
It's okay though...I think it'll be fast enough to skid across the Pacific into Laguna Seca

On the island of Oahu there are not to many wide open roads ... Unless you leave town and into the country. I'll find way to enjoy the kit even if that means I have to drive to the north shore to eat shrimp once a week

If this beast can spank the GTR, I will get it SC too, instead of trade it for a GTR.

04/15/2010 UPDATE:

Another Delay:

The rest of my kit came in today so I started to install everything onto the car. While changing out the fuel injectors I realized that one was missing so I couldn't finish the kit I called Roman right away and he said he was going to try and make it to FedEx in time to overnight me the injector. I was able to finish a few other things ...

Install review:

Let me start off by saying this is one nice kit It is so much nicer in person then all the pictures I've looked at. As stated above I was missing one fuel injector so I was unable to finish the install today but I hope to get the injectors tomorrow and start my road testing. Since I really couldn't finish the fuel injector portion of the install, I decided to move to other things.

I first started with mounting the supercharger in place and running all my belts. This part of the install was really easy. I did ask a friend for help when mounting the supercharger. I basically needed him to hold up the supercharger while I ran the bolts. Other then that I was able to take care of the belts on my own.

The second thing on the list was to install the Air filter hose and filter. The mounting portion of this install was easy but I did have a hard time fitting the filter in place due to the new extra large filter. I'll try and finish that tomorrow.

The third and last thing I was able to do was put back the DME and reinstall the fan. The DME was a no brainer but that damn fan gave me such a hard time. If your gonna do this make sure you take your time. Rushing to get it done will only make you blow a fuse.

My first thoughts:

I am truly happy that I decided to go with the ESS kit I can't believe how well this kit is designed. The install has been smooth so far and I can't really see anything going wrong from here on out. I know that there has been some delay but thats life and the way ESS had backed there service up is truly amazing. For those of you that are on the fence about this kit all I can say is that the install will make you feel like you can do anything!!

As much as I love my M3 ... If I had the chance I would trade in for a GT-R no questions asked
