Hi Everyone,

Yes we installed this a little while ago and was so very impressed with the kit that we had to get a professional video done and take it to the track to get tested. The Driver is a professional V8 Supercar driver and we wanted his response to how the car behaves with so much power.

You can view more of the build HERE
http://www.southernbm.com.au/gallery...s.php?album=43
There are 3 pages, page numbers down the RH Bottom of the page.

I personally have a supercharged M3 E46 and a highly modifed 135i and this M3 puts BMW pure driving pleasure into another league.

We currently have a 575 VT2 on order for an E90 M3 and i'm really looking forward to it getting here.
Enjoy

Great vid guys, he had the same reaction I did when I first drove my car after the ESS kit was installed. 518 whp on a dynodynamics in shootout mode is impressive. I would guess his TQ would be in the high 300's low 400's corrected. maybe Southern bm can explain the difference in readings VS what we usually see on US dyno dynamics.

Yes we are working on the numbers right now. I should have an explanation very soon. I am getting help as i don't know how to do this. I have all the raw data and read outs from the dyno runs we did and have the specs of the car. There is a conversion process that we are trying to work out at the moment. It should be the same as the other 625 kits with the Akra exhaust numbers though. No other special goodies, car is new, only 3000 kilometres on it. It is a DCT. car run in 4th gear, 19inch wheels, 265/35/ZR19, videos of runs posted above.

Wow cool, man this s/c decision is getting harder to make! Probably going to pull the trigger after the new year. Hopefully get some good Christmas money and make the jump to s/c status!

Great video!
