Supercharger Systems


The next generation of the ESS supercharger is here. With thousands of miles of durability testing on the Nurburgring and on race tracks across Europe our new E9X M3 supercharger line up delivers a product that has been engineered and tested to perfection.

The E9x M3 supercharger system comes with a high capacity liquid intercooler system and especially developed cast aluminium manifold assembly with integrated heat exchanger in VT2 configuration. The VT1 non-intercooled configuration uses a similar cast aluminium manifold assembly without the integrated heat exchanger. Power development is 100% smooth and the car behaves just like stock until you demand power, then the car completely transform providing brutal acceleration normally reserved for pure race cars. Custom engine management software has been developed to insure 100% integration with all OEM functions. DCT equipped cars will receive custom software designed for the transmission to work properly with the added power.

The system maintains all OBD-II functions and it is backed by a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty program.

I think I just made a poopy in my pants

Also, Great price point!


A few questions:

1. Does the price include installation?

2. What are the colors that one can choose for the intake manifold (I've seen a red one)?

3. Does the car have to be shipped to AZ or do you have an authorized installer in Northern VA?

The listed prices do not include installation.

We can arrange for custom finishes on manifolds thru IND if interested.

3. Does the car have to be shipped to AZ or do you have an authorized installer in Northern VA?

The kit can be installed by any qualified mechanic. We can also arrange for local installation here in AZ. We currently do not have an authorized dealer in VA.

Are all three kits safe to run on 91 octane?

Can you elaborate on the difference between VT1 and the other kits? I understand there is no intercooler, but what difference does this really make? There doesn't seem to be much of a power difference to warrant the much bigger price for the VT2.

Thanks.

VT2-600 Requires 93 Octane or better

And the difference is cooling. VT1 has no cooling. I'm sure it works but more power more heat and the addition of a blower is more heat anyway.
Personally I wouldn't run a supercharger without any cooling so the price jump into VT2 is for a heat exchanger and charge cooler that comes with it.

The colored manifolds you guys saw floating around were done custom. I'm sure IND would be happy to do that for anyone interested in something other than the stock black from ESS

Is there a NA tune for catless? That's a good price compared to the competition out there.

Do we need to upgrade the clutch etc if we upgrade to a supercharger? Any other parts of the car we need to upgrade?

VT1 runs lower boost and does not require our liquid to air cooling system. VT2 kits run higher boost and includes the cooling system. VT1-535 and VT2-575 can run 91 or 93 octane but VT2-600 requires 93.

Yes


The supercharger kits are designed to operate on 100% stock cars. Additional mods such as exhaust systems and clutch upgrades are not needed but can be done if the customer chooses to do so.
