Looking for Supercharger

Looks like ESS tops the list with many using there proven system. I am really leaning towards ESS, just because of all the great feed back and the way IND paints those ESS manifolds. But VF Engineering had something in the works and found these pic from Sema '11





Looks like the VF manifold has come along way almost production if not already.

You can also take a look at the Active Autowerke stage 1 and stage 2 supercharger kits. They offer custom painting of the manifold.

Kits will feature a black texture coated cast manifold, colored options will also be available for those wanting to personalize.

Here's an underhood shot on our car - it's track debut was at EuroTuner GP just a couple of weeks ago.



Production is just about ready.

^ All good suggestions.

If you want to see a painted ESS, I'm in Mt Laurel, NJ every other week. Don't know where in NJ you are.

I think you said it best man. In my mind it looks like you've already made a decision

Feedback is the most important thing, and obviously what you've seen on this forum already can already contribute to your not only wanting of this supercharger, but will make you feel more comfortable with it.

Let me know if you need any help. My head painter has worked on over 100 ESS and OEM manifolds at this point and can paint any custom color combination under the sun. ESS offers safe proven power gains.
