    ESS Super Charger Kit
    Eisenman Exhaust
    Sun Roof Delete
    Alcon Brake kit on all 4 corners
    Bi stein Suspension
    Sway Bars
    Smaller Crank Pulley to raise the boost in which be lost through the S/Sprint Headers once installed and back pressure is freed up.
    ICS Custom Catch Can

    The picture below show a set of Super Sprint Headers for an E39 BMW - Custom Fabricated to fit the E31 840CI Chassis with the 6 Speed Swap and an under shot of the 6 Speed manual transmission.

    The headers will be send out tomorrow to get ceramic coated before installation on them. Completion of the project is heading to an end.

    I will keep all of you who are interested as the build moved forward.

    Response to 6-speed question.

    The 6-speed manual conversion was done by Brett Anderson at Koala Motortsport, near Cleveland, installing a new Getrag, as was originally factory-available everywhere except in the USA. He also installed the ESS S/C kit and then did all the re-programming, which was unprededented. Tons of work-arounds required, with the only glitch remaining being that the odometer reads "kms" instead of "miles". (Could have had "miles" as the software-mating was available for Great Britain, but the OBC read-outs would have been reversed.)

    Regards.

    ^ And there we are. Thanks for the pics, car appears to be in above average shape overall, interior wear is to be expected.

    Look forward to seeing the rest of the work.

    Edit: Also just realized it has an ESS kit. I'm familiar with the details of the ESS setup for this motor, any further details?

    Just did a quick search and ESS does not have this listed on their site so I assume this something that is no longer supported/available or was limited to a small base.

    Never has been an E31 kit from ESS. Brett Anderson accepted the challenge of adapting the 540 kit.
