    I really wish e39m5 had some big power options that WORK! Those cars are great and get cheaper by the day.

    Well this kit seems to be working. I don't know what you consider big power though.

    Above 600rwhp is starting to head in big power area. Lol. That kit probably below 500rwhp. It still would be awesome but what happen to you when you want more boost/power. Seems custom and this mr x dude is only option. Which I wouldn't go near since I've never seen any working m5s. Best Ive seen was PhillyM5.

    Mr. X is not what he is cracked up to be, trust me.

    This isn't a big power kit, more of just a way to add power while remaining reliable. It is fairly mild.

    I'm sure it will still be a blast to drive. Wasn't knocking the kit or anything. Twin turbo would be great. I seen some candy purple m5 at Vac single turbo. He was trying to find someone to tune. Lol

    He was telling me how it's a highway killer. I said let's run but his answer was his car isn't tuned. Don't know how he was driving but the hardware looked nice at least.

    It's was baller status tho. Candy paint, chrome , lots
    of $$$ but it almost made me throw up. Lol.

    A single turbo E39 M5? I wonder whose that is. Plus, who will tune it? Interesting though, would like more details on that.

    540? Still, would be good to know.

    Mr. X is nonsense, don't buy into it and better yet don't have him tune your car!

    Go on YouTube or google turboed 540. Youll find it can't miss it. There's stupid YouTube videos of ot starting. I'm sure you could find more then me. I just so happened to see him. It's a show car but no go. Turbo is for looks. I'm on my phone or I'd find the pics.

    They have more than one setup, some with aftercooler, some without. Just depends how much you want to spend. I respect that they offer the option.

    I like how they spaced the parts out to make it the kit seem bigger than it is. 9 grand and it doesn't even come with T-bolts? Come on.

    I hope they do something unique with the car. Otherwise it's just another bolt-on build like most everything else. Not that exciting if you ask me.

    ESS doesn't offer any intercooler or aftercooler for the M5 kits. The kit was designed to run 8 psi max, so they didn't see the need to add an intercooler for that boost level. There are some guys who are making 500-550 wheel with methanol though.

    Thats what I thought. Not worth it.

    No intercooled S62 setup? That's a little weird.

    IND always does unique stuff. Plus, it's cool to see a build no matter what.

    They space the kit out and took an exploded view photo, it looks cool. Come on, let's be positive watching this come together.

    There are some points of criticism perhaps such as the intercooler but good photography is not something to criticize.
