ESS VT2-600 Supercharged E92 M3 vs Modded SLS AMG **VIDEO**

Hello all,

2 weeks ago, we attended the Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack in Coalinga, CA. We brought out our 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with some bolt on parts and tuning.
The first run of the day was against a VT2-600 supercharged E92 M3. This is a bolt on bulletproof intercooled system that does not require any type of methanol injection to make big power. Look how it stacks up against our modded $200k+super car. I was extremely impressed, and to think that you have the option to upgrade to the VT2-625, and 650 kit puts it into perspective how much power can be made.

At HG we ONLY offer the best products which we stand behind. Not interested in selling hopes, dreams, and inflated dyno charts. We are happy to be partners in performance with ESS Tuning, and will have some sales coming up soon. I hope you enjoy the video.

Complete video coverage of the event:

Thanks for posting...I had a blast on our first run of the first day! It was nice meeting/hanging out with you guys.

No shame in loosing to such a beast...especially seeing in your compilation vid that you beat the ZR1 as well.

That SLS is insane...

I wonder what the gains were from the Headers + Akra + tune..

Sweet vids

Nice video.
If any of you are purchasing ANY AT&T services could you mention that you were referred by me? My referral ID is eo4489. This would be a great help, thank you!
