Redline Speed Worx (RSW) recently had the opportunity to complete the installation of an ESS Tuning E9x M3 Supercharger System.
The mid-level intercooled
supercharger system produces 625hp and 410lb-ft of torque at 6.5-7psi of boost. A 211hp gain over stock, which is more than a Mercedes SLS Black Series. Featuring the newly developed, self contained Vortech V3 supercharger unit in Si trim, the supercharger is capable of producing up to 775hp.
The VT2-625 comes with the largest capacity liquid intercooler system on the market integrated within a specially developed cast aluminum intake manifold assembly ‘ribbed’ with optimized runners and velocity stacks. This ensures the intake charge temps remain in check during prolonged use on the track, autobahn, or street. The manifold was designed not only for optimum flow, but for minimal weight to not disrupt the iconic handling balance of the M3.
The supercharger system includes the ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable and specific ESS MSS60 engine software that is perfectly calibrated for the VT2-625 supercharged engine providing optimum ignition timing under all conditions, recalibrated EGA's for quicker throttle response, recalibrated VANOS control, and perfectly optimized fuel delivery. The E-Flash allows the end user to upload the supercharger ECU software from any PC running Windows XP or newer and includes a full diagnostic and code clearing capability. Any future ESS software updates can be received by email and loaded directly to the car. The stock ECU software will be saved and can easily be restored in the future.Power delivery is 100% smooth and OEM-caliber. The car behaves just like stock until you demand power, then the car completely transform providing brutal acceleration normally reserved for pure race cars.
The system maintains all OBD-II functions and it is backed by a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty program.
Intercooled, 6.5-7PSI system compatible with manual cars (or DCT cars with BMW software release 12/2010 or later, or must have ESS DCT Performance Transmission Software installed). 91AKI/95RON or above required. *HFC or cat-delete mid section recommended.
