My ESS VT1-535 vs DLSJ5's VT2-625 run video

Had a chance to see what my car would do when run against DLSJ5's 625 car this weekend. Thought taking some video would be good to see the difference between the two. Will run against a stock M3 soon, so that'll be cool video too and should be kinda cool to see stock vs 535 vs 625!

Obviously closed stretch of road. Enjoy...

By the way, I should add....the 535 is FAST....the 625 is UNBELIEVABLE!

That is incredible. How much increase on the low end do you notice with the supercharger?
In other words are you going to be faster coming out of tight turns onto a straight at the track?

I can't speak for the 625, but with the 535, it is NOTICEABLY faster down low. While you don't notice much under 3500 rpm or so in 1st (due to blower design), if you were on a track, your RPM's would be much higher as you downshift and it is incredible.

I assume the 575/600/625/650 etc are similar but I'm sure someone will chime in!

saw the video on Drew's page... awesome! Once you get a full exhaust, the power is really released. It's not guaranteed but i picked up 40+ whp with my x-pipe.

Cool video. you will definitely gain some more power once you change your exhaust setup.

Thanks guys! I have the Akra evo on the way, so hopefully any day it'll show up and we'll see what it can do!

Love these types of comparo's.

Mason thanks for posting! Next time I'm in PHX we all need to meet up, I have a few friends there with M3's as well. Have to say it's been a pleasure working with Roman and AJ on the car, couldn't be happier with the results and can't wait for the next stage!

Well said Raz, he'll gain at least 20-30whp with an xpipe.

Nice vid - What editing software did you use?

Both kits are awesome but now I suddenly feel the need to swap my pulley and tune.. hmm.
