    • Stock C6 Z06 vs. ESS (esstuning) VT2-600 supercharged DCT E90 M3

      Here we have a bone stock C6 Z06 vs. a VT2-600 supercharged DCT M3. The M3 gets crushed pretty decisively. Even in the run where the Z06 let off and then got back on it, it clearly shows the power disparity between the two as the Z06 is able to creep back up. So why this result when a DCT Gintani supercharged M3 is able to walk a stock Z06?

      Well, a couple things. The M3 has 3.62 gears. I personally switched back to the stock gears after running 3.62's as they slowed me down up top. Additionally, this clearly shows, yet again, that the Gintani Stage 2 setup is simply much stronger. We respect the M3 owner for going out there and running and we thank the Z06 owner for putting the video up showing how it "really" is in the real world. In the future, the ESS M3 owner should switch back to the stock gears and get meth, unless he enjoys losing to stock cars.


      Here is Drew's Gintani Stage 2+ DCT M3 running stock Z06's:

        Hey if you are paying, that sounds great.

        Send the heads to Bavarian Solutions as well and get Schrick to do some custom cams while we are at it.

        I have no dog in this fight but you are clearly an ESS basher. You point out, oh look, this kit LOST and this kit WON, AGAIN OMG... But make your own decisions, lol.

        So it's bashing saying someone should come to their own conclusion and that I like things about the kit?

        I think you clearly came to a premature conclusion. There is a TON of ESS BS to refute and that is what I love about real results, they do it for me. You obviously have no clue as you haven't followed the S65 tuner scene to the level I have. I suggest you read and learn.
