    Really thinking of swapping kits like that?

    Greetings,

    The rumors are true, I did get a supercharger installed.

    What will come as a suprise to all of you, is what kit I settled on. The deciding factor was not cost, was not company, was not reputation. It was TIME. Plain and simple. For those of you close friends, you already know what I mean by that. All those factors boiled down to time.

    I am a fan of the E9x M3 and love driving it every chance I get. To add boost is just a bonus.

    I chose an ESS 535 kit.

    I like to be different! WIth an AA stg 2, VF620 and ESS 625/650 local, it would make sense to go with the one that seems to balance the best of all of them. Ive never been dissapointed with Evolves stuff so I have no fear in their abilities.

    Kit looks great! But im not a fan of the full silicon hoses, you can see just from revving the car up how much they expand.. theres no way to use reinforced ones?

    They mentioned in the R&D thread that these hoses are significantly lower quality than what will be provided with the kit. Evolve's mentality was that they would use weaker silicone hoses/connections during the test phase, so when the kit was released to the public with much higher quality pieces, NOTHING would break/leak.

    Just a few comments on testing.

    Hardware:

    The hardware used on the prototype is exactly what will be used on production with respect to design. As far as materials go we decided to test with weaker components. If the weaker components survive then we know components which are 10 x stronger will never have an issue.
    An example of this - boost runners through the front panel (the black looking intake pipes) are made of Nylon. Now this is nowhere near as strong as aluminium. Nylon is taking the boost spikes when we let off the throttle at the rpm limiter. We are using sub standard sealing methods on purpose in that area such as under sized O-Rings and cheap sealant. Still we have no boost leaks and the relatively weak Nylon parts are not blowing apart.
    The black wire run silicone hoses that go to and from the intercooler assembly have thinner than production wire in them. These are not blowing apart or deforming permanently. The production parts have a thicker wire guage. We therefore know they will be absolutely fine.
    The air intake pipe to the supercharger is also made from Nylon and due to the way it's constructed is a good 20 times weaker than a production plastic or composite part. Due to the fact that the intake pipe is connected to the supercharger which will move with the engine but the other end won't move as it's connected to the bumper, we needed to make sure it wouldn't break. The Nylon part is surviving. So we know a normal plastic or composite part will never break.
    Finally the CNC plenum and bracket. These are both made thinner than the production parts to see how they with stand stress and boost spikes. That was overkill as far as testing was concerned but you may aswell do it because it doesn't cost anything.

    So what we have essentially done is test the much weaker and inferior parts over the same time span as we would have tested the production parts. This way we know the production kit is bomb proof.

    The question some of you might have is did we blow anything up? Well.. yes we did. The Nylon supercharger parts blew themselves apart because we made them way too thin the first time around. From memory 2mm thick Nylon which was set in the wrong direction for strength. You could break these with your hands.

    Ugh...I want this so bad!!!

    @LostMarine hopefully everything works out so you can pick up a kit. If there's anyone who is going to do some proper testing of what this thing is capable of, it's you. $14,000 is a hefty amount, but it seems all the well worth it in terms of quality compared to everything else out there!

    I can't wait to see more of these in production!

    $14k intro price / $16.5k puts in right inline with every other max power/stock motor kit available:
    • Active Autowerke Stg 2 - $16k
    • ESS Tuning VT2-650 - $16.5k
    • Gintani Stage 2+ - $16k
    • VF Engineering VF650 - $16.5k


    Like I said, still interested to see if @evolve decides to make a low compression motor to compete with the ESS VT3 & Gintani Stage 3s Click here to enlarge

    Get that deposit ready LM!

    You will experience torque and power across a much wider powerband.

    Better be careful. If @LostMarine gets a hold of this kit, upon his first launch at the track, he may get lost in spaceClick here to enlarge...
