Supercharged e93

Wassup guys. thinking about pulling the trigger on a ess vt2-625kit. However i can't seem to find a lot of reviews on supercharged verts. can't find any videos of it doing pulls against other cars either, only dynes. basically I'm trying to figure out how it would stack up against other high hp cars. also due to the extra weight of the car is a bbk needed? i have the $ for the blower kit but would rather not spend 6k if i don't need to.

If you're not planning to track it, I don't think the BBK is necessary. Stock brakes have plenty of braking force.

Like Hujan said, don't need to the BBK if not tracking.

As for stacking up against other high HP cars, just look at the E92 and E90s that have the 625 and think of yourself a little slower due to weight, but I don't think it will make THAT big of a difference. Will still be plenty fast.

Good point-- BBK reduces the brake fade experienced over multiple hard uses in succession (as on a track), where stock M3 brakes work fine for street use with occasional hard stops and plenty of cool down time between them.

I had a vt2-600 which ran great on PSS 19/35/275's on the rear. Almost always would hook given the extra weight of the vert. Just stomping on the gas I pulled a 3.99 sec 0-60, no wheel spin, and using launch control pulled a 3.71 (based on the p-3 boost guage). Also had a 650 kit, but that beast almost always spun the tires.

Personally I'd do it again in a heart beat. That said, if I was on a budget and just wanted some extra power, I get the 550 kit ESS offers, or that power range for any other vender (I've only had the ESS kits so can only offer my opinion based on their SC). However if your getting the mod fever then you may begin to wish more power....

BBK? Don't need it for daily driving. Not a problem at all. Mod fever hit me hard so I have them!

BBK is not needed but will improve your standard braking even when not under track conditions. ESS and VF-Engineering would be solid choices for your supercharger setup.

Let me know how you like your exhaust as well!

I've been running a VF620 kit on my e93 for a while, tracked the car and took it to a couple Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack events.

It's a load of fun, the performance is awesome.

My recommendation would be to get the bearings replaced with coated bearings as a pre-emptive fix, as superchargers tend to accelerate the bearing issue.
