Suri is right the Supercharger was from ESS Tuning
It is a TVS Stage 2 Eaton with a custom ESS Tuning manifold
I have not had time to get the tuning right yet but when I have time I will work on that.
Performance is great.

Ok so was it custom fitting or it just fits on the car? And sorry for another stupid question do you know how much money that cost?

It does bolt straight on and ESS provides injectors , intercooler and other bits needed.
The unit was about 11k I think from memory

I know this thread is old but I was going to purchase the supercharger ess tuning when it was released for the e65 this coming year. But I looked at the dyno numbers Giz11 posted and he only gained 82hp from the s/c that cost over $9,000 not including the tune and labor of the parts. This is highway robbery that kit is no different then the ones on ebay that you wire up to your air box. Just expressing my disappointment of this product after we all waited so long for it. They claim you get 125hp with the intercooler but Giz11 has all this and only got that little bit of power.

He is getting 82HP at the WHEELS.. probably a little close to 125hp total.. plus we have no idea how much boost he is running and he has already said it's still running rich, running right that thing could scream..

+1

Would I pay this much? Probably not. But is 82 whp a significant gain? DEFINITELY. And it's pretty much the only option available right now to increase performance, unless you're just able to purchase a faster car

OME TUNING offers a 30hp tune for like $600 which is half the hp of a s/c. I'm around a lot of modded cars daily far as performance and s/c normally kick out 100hp + to the ground. I would love to have a s/c 7 series but at a cheaper price maybe around $6000-$7500 would entertain the thought but for over $9000 thats just a rip off. I run a 75 wet shout of gas and save $8000 just in case I blow the motor i got extra cash to purchase another one.

I bet the OME tune disables the P0491 emissions codes, due to the design flaw and the clogged ports in the heads.. making that tune well worth $600.. I believe the software just to disable the codes are in the multi-hundreds..

nice supercharger bro! im in the works now for my e65 with VAC motorsports in philly now to put a eaton or whipple on mine. My goal is to safely push the stock motor to its limits. I have some numbers in mind but will see what gives. My projects are usually crazy. I have a 04 cobra pushing 1076 rwhp on pump running compound boost set up. I should have my project e65 complete in the next four months. Then I can race simon lol

No I haven't installed gas on my 7 YET! But next year I'm installing gas, bigger injectors, high-flow cats, and level 10 tranny upgrade. I'll start a thread as soon as I start buying the goodies. I know a lot of you guys are like why do all this to a 7 but like my friend told me who is buying the ess tuning s/c, it's cheaper to play with this car then go buy a cts-v or porsche which I agree cause I'm bored with mustangs and camaro just the typical street cars. It be so bad ass to bust some buts at the stop light and go valet park for dinner lol!!

Thanks for posting this up, I have sent a email to inquire about the custom mapping and referenced this thread.

www.oetuning.com

If I can buy this without sending in my ECU I am very interested.

May I ask what a level 10 tranny upgrade is? I would be afraid to add any power to these cars because of our trannies..

From the website it looks like the 745 gains 26hp - up to 351hp total and the 750 gains 18 hp - up to 378hp total and it's $690 for the software. It might be worth it?

I was emailed tonight and thy offer both 745 and 750 maps. They are also running a special right now thru the end of the year.

If you are interested I suggest you contact them directly as they are not sponcers on bimmerfest. The special for you to send in you ecu is 550.00 and to get the plugin commander cost 800.00.

I will post my email from them below.


Hi Chris,



Thanks for contacting OE Tuning and for providing the information and interest on Bimmerfest. From tuning Valvetronic V8s (x45i & x50i) we typically seen gains of +25-30wTq & +13-15wHp to the wheels from dyno testing. More information about the tune can also be found here: http://oetuning.com/blog/?p=661



Features of the tune include:



- Valvetronic adjustment

- Higher Torque request

- Ignition and Fuel mixture adjustment

- Speed limiter removal

- Improved throttle response

- Rpm and shifting limits can also be increased



We are currently offering a sale running until December 31st. During the Holiday Sale the price for the ecu tune is $550 (ECU send in). We also offer EZ Flash, flash loader with 4 map pack (stock, valet, tuned premium pumpgas & 100oct Race) for $800.00. More information can be found here http://oetuning.com/blog/?p=162

With the purchase of a flash loader, your ECU does not need to be removed for tuning and you can switch between settings at you convenience.

Purchase also comes with a free reflash should the dealership write over your tuned settings. Your tune will be saved in our database and is always 100% reversible. We have not ever had an issue with BMW dealers and warranty.

If you would like any more information on the OE Tuning tune for 550i valvetronic, please don't hesitate to email or call the shop. 818-574-5075 or sales@oetuning.com. I welcome you to give out any and all information to others who are interested. As we are not sponsors on Bimmerfest forum, we do understand that we cannot post any information that could be interpreted as advertising.

I am all too happy to assist if there is anything that you need.

Regards,



Jeremy



On Sat, Dec 8, 2012 at 3:06 PM,


I would be interested in getting more information to what tuning can be done to my car for performance. I am the moderator on the e65/66 section of Bimmerfest AKA Sirstopher. I am inquiring about the process of the tuning mod and what needs to be done to the car as far as sending in a ECU or using other sources to install your maps.



Please visit the site below as there are a number of members that would be interested in updating their cars and purchasing your custom maps.



http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...=581073&page=3



I would caution you to supply only information on the forum as you are not a paying sponsor but would love for you to reply to this thread above.



Chris

They have great customer service. I am gone try them out before the end of the month and post my thoughts. Now my question is do anyone see my point of not buying the over priced s/c for the 7 series when small mods like this is way more better on your wallet. I would like Giz11 to chime in being that he the only one that has done the s/c and know more about the dyno results he posted then us. I want to know at the time of the dyno run was all the flaws worked out or was this the best results he could get out of it.

If I was to do or even think about a s/c I myself would just go find a nice B7.

I like the fact that oetuning supplies the different maps, limiter removal, changes to the gear box and most important with this car the adjustment of throttle response. For 800.00 still seems like a lot of money but its one of the only modifications for our cars.

I am on the fence but really thinking about this mod.

Whipple does not offer one. My friend who I grew up with is on of their head people. So were going to come up with something one off working with VAC motorsports to some up with something roots style should be come pretty exciting stuff. VAC helped a friend of mine in UAE do a custom set up on his 7 that no one in the world has and never will.
