Alpine white e90 joins the ESS family

We recently installed this supercharger on this 2011 Alpine White M3 sedan and we were impressed with the results. With nothing other than a set of Corsa mufflers, this M3 put down a very healthy 502hp and 326lb-ft tq at the wheels on our Dynojet 224xLC Dyno. Compared to the previous state of this M3 the VT1-550 supercharger added over 125hp to the wheels, which is, to say the least, something you'll really feel.



Modifications
Corsa Exhaust
ESS VT1-550 Supercharger System

Damn, 502 from a VT1, doesn't ESS claim only around 485 for that model? Nice numbers either way.

I am looking to get that kit at some point (yes Roman, I will use your tune ), glad to see how efficient it is.

Edit: I just noticed he's running 91 octane. How much would the HP improve on 93 you think?

He is running aftermarket angel eyes but unfortunately I'm not sure which ones. He came in with those installed already.

93 Octane would put up some higher numbers. I would say 10-15+ WHP more

Stock tire sizes but is running 15/12 mm spacers.

502whp on 91 octane and stock x-pipe? Good joke EAS. How about an accurate dyno?
