Looks awesome Tom! Agree that's a LOT of power for 91 octane. Mix in some 100 and I bet you hit 580+.

Any charts comparing the VF and ESS kits stacked together? Show this "new found power" to the general public.

For those that were wondering what the sending units were being installed for:



This is the "gotta have it" item for boosted M3s in 2013. Locals have seen a sneak peek of this at the track and at our facility.

More info coming later today.

Not that expensive, they actually start at $1149 (US), which is comparable to what a full set of traditional quality 52mm gauges would cost with labor.

Not to mention the loads of additional features included and interaction with CAN. It simply picks up where the BMW Performance Steering wheels left off and runs with it as far as features go.

For reference, I'm using the Kompressor 1 in the video. Those attending Bimmerfest will be able to see this in action.

1) Already on your site looking @ pricing....not bad, but a group buy would be great

2) Awron's site shows an E46 gauge. Are you guys planning on carrying it, and if so, do you have pricing?

3) Finally, I ran back through all your posts in this section of the forum, and I failed to find a dyno of your project car w/the VF kit on it. I too, would like to see that dyno, as I'm assuming you guys have one. Like another member, I couldn't help but notice the "newfound power" statement you made, and found your choice of words rather interesting.

There's plenty of dynos on other earlier threads to reference from, in various forms.

Had a chance to take the ESS 625 on Buttonwillow during the Speed District event (over 3 hours of track time) and was very pleased with the performance. Midrange power was more responsive, no hiccups during acceleration and shedding about 50lbs (VF systems are a bit on the heavy side) from the nose are all benefits.

During post-track inspection - I was pleased not to see any engine codes stored at all, something that I haven't seen in a long time.

I'd rather not get into the VF vs ESS debate, there are plenty of those threads elsewhere.

In the meantime, we also have DGA E46M3 gauges on the way.
