    • ESS is attempting to back out of the dyno event they themselves requested?


      Roman at ESS is now attempting to back out of the tuner dyno day shootout. I would like to remind everyone, ESS requested this dyno comparison themselves and asked BimmerBoost to schedule it. Now that the date is nearing, ESS is going back on their word at the last minute

      I received this e-mail from Roman:

      This was my response:

      We have over a half dozen companies waiting on ESS. BMS has agreed and has been patiently waiting. MHP agreed although the date change now inconvenience them. Gintani agreed and said they would accept the date change for ESS. OE Tuning agreed and said they accept the date change to wait for ESS. Powerchip said they do not mind the date change and look forward to it. Vishnu has agreed in proxy and we also have GIAC representation. G-power is ready with their supercharger representation.

      BimmerBoost has worked tirelessly to make this event happen at substantial cost as any of these companies can attest. We have been on the phones and e-mailing back and forth for what is almost 4 months now.

      ESS requested this event, led everyone on, and now is backing down from their own challenge. BimmerBoost has considerable cost tied to the event and will not simply let it go. DC Performance has a large amount of revenue dependent on the event. Literally dozens of people, companies will be hurt financially and inconvenienced by ESS not honoring its own request.

      We would like the BMW community to encourage ESS to participate as they had agreed, please contact Roman and make it known you would like to see the event take place as planned:

        No need to apologize, at least you were willing to step up to the plate Click here to enlarge Not a big deal at all, thanks for considering it.

        There were two ESS E90 M3s at Spocom a few weeks back. Don't know the owners or what mods the cars have, just saw them at the show. They rolled with MFest. Maybe you can post on the MFest forum and see if they bite...

        DC Performance is going to attempt to get through to ESS to let them know that they are handling everything. Completely independent third party, we will see what happens.

        Really wanted to make it out there ... Not only for the Dyno day but to also check out some shops and finally meet all you guys.

        I'm sure we will have another opportunity in the future. Not sure how often you come out to SoCal. Hey, maybe I'll come to you one day as I have always wanted to go to Hawaii.

        Who is out here? I only know of one that is only running ~5.5 psi, any of the higher boost kits?

        Did you read through the thread?

        You are definitely welcome but the dyno day is postponed for now. We will see what happens shortly.

        Ah I see, you want to know where. The reason why I asked is because if a dynojet is going to be used it will be at DC Performance as they have been extremely patient and deserve to host the event in my opinion.

        I've already talked to Mark at MD Automotive and he said that he is willing to do an event like this if anything falls through with the other place.
        His shop is in Westminster. 714-891-1113
