Sequim740 im from Perth Western Australia, basking in 100 deg F today.
High end cars are expensive here, all tax
Cjezzy11 I spoke with ESS directly and they provided the kit. I had to make the air intake do some minor mods, nothing too tricky.

Is it all working out though man? Did you get all the issues sorted out?

And if so, post up a dyno sheet already! We want to see some numbers

Not all fine tuned yet.
I have been busy at work so things have not progressed much. Did have an AC compressor fail on me but a rebuild at a cost of $150 fixed that.
I will look at going to the dyno guy later this week and will post the results when I have them and some more pics

I'd think he's running more than just 50-75 more horsepower though. This the same company that makes superchargers for the ZR1 and CTS-V my dudes

I think the charger is super cool but not for the money. And seem like ess tuning could remap his computer since they sell the charger. If i paid that much for the setup i would like it to include tuning.

I put vinyl on top of the chrome, got tired of the chrome, was gonna get rid of the rest of the chrome like the chrome roof lines but cant find time to do them, stuff takes too long to vinyl.

Sorry about the lack of info, absorbed in non car things that tend to take over ones life.
I had the car Dynotuned which made it run alot better. The pully size was reduced as well.
The car is still running riich so it is not quite right. I will get it tuned again.
Power is impressive though, no complaints there at all
There aslo is a large flatspot under full accelleration with the transmission changing up so I think there is more work to be done in this area.
Would still recommend the mod.
Regards
Giz

He used an ESS Supercharger that was originally made for the 545i. He went from 273.8 rwhp to 354 rwhp which is close to a 30% gain in power
