If I was an E92 M3 owner and wanted FI, Evolve would be my choice.

For both of my ESS Vortech based kits ('03 330xi, '06 M3) I went down two pulley sizes. Purchased the...

Got my attention.
Earlier in this thread, you'd noted how Dave will do certain things, or certain things a bit differently for a head used with FI. I'd like to follow up on this in the future.

S54 head p*rn. Looks great! Did I miss the let's-go-to-Dave's message? lol.
I could be an assistant; kind of like a 'go-fetch' and 'hold-this', and 'take pics' boy . . . . .

Nice flow gains Mike! Some pics below of Mike's S54 head, taken while at Dave's shop.

No MAF on the ESS kits.

Additional dyno pics from the session.
ESS file, all 3 runs.

Dyno results tell part of the story, and so does the driving experience.
This E46 M3 is my only car, the daily in sun, rain, and snow. Occasional HPDE, open lapping, and TT.
Going to the dark side...
A great thread! Can't have too many pics!
Looking forward to more pics and impressions of the transformation.

You will enjoy the added power from the hardware.
And, you will also enjoy the added power and power delivery with the Evolve tune; from throttle tip-in to throttle release, and everything in...

Nice numbers Mike, and even if the correction factor is of concern, the relative comparisons to each other are still of use. Just as important is how the car feels to the driver, and you've made that...
S54: Farewell to ESS
I've purchased three significant products from ESS.
Year 2004: Supercharger kit for my '03 330xi.
Year 2010: Naturally aspirated tune for my current car, an '06 M3 Coupe.
Year 2012: Supercharger...

Love those TE37's Alex. Where'd you get 'em?

Looks like Rotrex has a C38-92 model out now.
I wonder what the difference is between the 91 vs 92.
Good point. I can see your post in BimmerBoost, but no longer in M3F.
Have you had any oil or coolant temp heat issues? Have you tracked the car, and if yes, any heat issues there?
Are you running WTM all the time, or does the stage 2 kit also work without WTM?
That Maximum PSI turbo graph is sweet!
When I go to the Max PSI website, I see nothing about the E46 M3 S54 kit.
Here's the URL: www.maximumpsi.com
Am I going to the correct URL?
Are you planning to keep the car street legal? If yes, are there emissions OBDII checks in your area?
I ask this because I believe the HPF kit uses a standalone engine management system. SES light...

An intriguing kit; got a couple of questions.
1. Can the kit be tuned to run on 91 AKI fuel? That's the best piss I can get in Colorado.
2. Can you post pics of the underside where the charge...
An excellent price for both the headers and section 1!
Gains throughout the RPM range; and a more throaty sound to boot.

Nice results Mike! I bet you can feel the difference in how the car drives as well.
12-18-2012, 04:36 PM
I am way pleased with how the car feels; thanks Mike for your feedback.
Looking forward to more updates on your project, and enjoyed driving your ///M as well. I've not had much of a chance to drive...
Love your car Ejaz! Planning to PM you about your steering wheel.

Looking forward to seeing your results byron! With better flowing exhaust, VE is improved, and therefore power; all without increasing boost.
I don't know for sure, but note that the beauty...

If you look at new for new, the Supersprint headers/section 1 combo is not much different than OE Euro headers/section 1. To me, those two are a good comparison for fitment and quality of...
