There was a discussion on e46fanatics regarding a blown motor by VF and ESS got dragged in. Roman@ESS then made this post:
Well, I honestly wanted to mend fences with them. I wrote an e-mail to ESS earlier this week thinking that maybe I went went overboard and somehow I was actually in the wrong. This is what I said:
We will never get an answer to why their M3 makes over 600 whp through the stock exhaust on pump gas and 8 psi:
Independent dynos are not anywhere near this.
I want to make it clear, there is no witch hunt against ESS. They make a good product, great product even. I considered their product. I recommend their product and vendors here carry their product and should do so with confidence in it. We are proud to have them. However, their marketing is misleading. NO INDEPENDENT DYNO has even remotely come close to their stock exhaust pump gas dynos. They use the same dyno for various setups to try and make their cars look stronger than they are. My friends, that is straight up lying to people and misleading them.
Once again, ESS makes great products and they are free to address any of these questions, however, Roman refuses to engage in a discussion with me where there is no moderator control in his favor. I think people should really question the integrity of their marketing if they refuse to answer these legitimate questions with such overwhelming evidence of deception. If Roman and ESS won't address this, that should tell someone all they need to know about the dyno claims.
