DIY request: ESS VT1 Supercharger

Hi All,

I searched but couldn't find anything.

Is there a step-by-step DIY for the ESS VT1-535 Supercharger system? This would be for a E92 M3.

I'm putting mine in Saturday, and it would be helpful to have some intuition to reference.

Thanks in advance.

If you didn't get instructions with the kit, I don't think you'll find a DIY anywhere on it. Afaik, it seems to be a simple install.

I got pretty far on the kit today.

I stopped when the manual started talking about the "ESS front element"
This is step 49 on the pdf link from Nate.

I'm assuming this is actually for an intercooled VT2+ kit.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, otherwise, does anyone have the manual for the VT1-535 (non-intercooled) kit?

Thank you,
Brad

The VT1-535 systems are very simple for the DIY type.

Feel free to contact us if you should have any questions along the way or if any of the steps are unclear.
