    Their loss, other M3 owners gains....

    Just wondering, but how successful is ESS as a company?? I know that their E9x superchargers control a decent portion of that market, but I really don't hear about them having a similar presence on other platforms like AA (who sells performance parts for almost every BMW) or VF (sells kits on a wide variety of platforms)?

    Not looking to derail the thread, so if I am Sticky feel free to toss this post. I just feel like ESS' business is make or break on superchargers sales for E9x M3s.

    We actually have 3 Bov's unlike the other kits on the market our engine does not keep pulling when getting off boost. I have heard this complaint from many Ess owners. Whats funny is they get a reply like "Oh thats normal they all do it". Not True!

    Either because the customer didn't want it or because it isn't done yet.

    Because the red manifold was powdercoated while the blue one was painted

    Do you offer your mani in the symbolic AA lime green? Combine with a white AA symbl and it would look awesome.

    He is referring to how the car will continue to pull once you lift off the throttle under boost. It has to do with the recirculating BOV system that ESS uses. Whereas the AA kit doesnt have that problem.
