eas | Another ESS-equipped M3 on the loose! 585whp/377tq on 91 octane!

When this E92 M3 came to our shop this week it was in 100% bone stock form.



Usually when we see a stock car come in, it's for some "minor" modifications like wheels, spacers or painted reflectors; this car was different - it was 100% stock. Not pulling any punches, this MY10 Jet Black E92 M3 got the big boy modifications: an ESS VT2-625 supercharger and an Akrapovic Evolution exhaust, following a "less is more" type of approach.

Before we installed these two high-performance systems, we strapped the car to the dyno and saw a 350whp run - typical to what we're used to seeing stock M3s at. After the car was completed, we saw an incredible 585whp run - that's 235hp gain at the wheels! Simply amazing for 91 octane, we can easily break the 600whp mark on race fuel.

Modifications
ESS VT2-Supercharger System in Black Finish
Akrapovic Evolution Exhaust System



Installation


























Watch out on the street, because this M3 really is a "wolf in sheep's clothing".

With work completed and strapped to the dyno, it's time to make some power.
