Yeah- anything not done by bms is useless or crap:mad: I really cannot stand how you criticize anything that is not BMS. Not to mention that you post your dyno's on other peoples posts. It really is tiresome.

Romen- thanks for sharing. Mustang dyno's are pretty damn conservative and 317 looks really good. I wonder what the numbers would look like on 93 octane...

Wooooooah there. I don't mean to speak for Palantirion or anything. But I think what he meant was that these results are "useless" because without a stock baseline, there is no way to know what the effect of the ESS software and RPI scoop is on this car, on this dynamometer.

Correct me if needed Palantirion.

-Exactly. I'm a big fan of both RPI and ESS. They make good quality products.

Not that anyone here (except Roman) would know, but I went well out of my way to create a comparison dyno graph of ESS's E39 M5 supercharger kit for a thread of Roman's over on m5board. I did this unasked, and BMS does not sell ESS products. I simply wanted to support a good company, because there are so many that aren't and it's difficult for those not "inside" the business to tell the difference.

Just info nothing was implied by it other then sharing. Nowhere did I say that the car gained X amount of HP by any mod. I think Earl has posted enough info on gains from these mods for anyone that is interested. And to pals comment about track times if you read Earls review from his past track event he did post times before and after mods I believe and also spoke about the effects these mods have had on the track. When it comes to info on these specific mods Planatirion would be your best resource.

-Actually, I still have to write my review of the ESS software, based in part from my last track day at Willow. I'm going to try to get it done tonight...

Spent ALL of yesterday driving around to Willow and Buttonwillow, to take pics of the Gumball 3000 cars. Got back at 11 last night, still behind on my work.

Cant wait to see the pics :thumbup:

I have not seen many NA Z4M's break 300HP on any dyno so I thought it was cool when I received this dyno. I did not feel that it was useless information im sorry if some of you do. My car in its NA days maxed out at 192 on 91 octane. I tried several times on different dynos to break 300 and could never do it unless I ran 98.

There sure does seem to be lots of complaints about information sharing and how it is done on this forum. Some people here are just never happy :thumbdwn: I think im gonna take a break from posting here and spend some time on some of my other fav boards.....

take care guys

When you do come back can you post some of your 1/4 mile track times so we can see how useable your power is as well as videos and timeslips. Can you also post up some videos of runs against real contenders instead of dyno graphs and pictures of other cars. Thanks!:thumbup:

Sure the baseline dyno would have been more helpful, but my first thought was...Holy Crap 300+ on a mustang dyno!! Maybe on a Dynojet, but a mustang dyno these a great numbers even with out the baseline!! To clarify, are there mufflers with straight pipe back to the primary cats (ie. no secondary cats and no resonator) or actual straight pipe with no muffler straight back to primary cats?

I am assuming stock headers and primary cats are still on the car correct? This is exciting for me since I am considering eliminating my secondary cats leaving me with Supersprint sport mufflers, x-pipe straight back to primaries.

Let me add that I was at the track with [email protected] and he had nothing but good things to say about ESS. In fact, when I told him I was going to delete my secondary cats he recommended getting the ESS.
