    Hi from new member with SC M3

    Hey guys! I'm new to this forum, and wanted to introduse my self. I come from Norway and drive a 03 e46 M3 with SMG. I have been lucky enough to test out the upcoming VT2 550 kit from ESS on my car, and wanted to share some of my videos from the track testing

    Hope you enjoy Click here to enlarge








    Regards
    Setra

    I mean you say this is a new kit that is not out yet, so what is different about this kit? What changes are in the VT2-550?

    Oh, sorry didn't get that...

    The 550 kit has a bigger intercooler then the already launched VT2 500 kit. It comes with a different fuel pressure regulator and larger injectors. Running 9-10 psi of boost.

    Will this be a 93 octane kit only?

    What are the claimed power gains?

    Yes, i think 93 octane is minimum.

    I think they are going to rate it as a 550 hp kit. Crank HP that is.

    This likely won't be released in the US? Euro only?

    For some strange reason it's restricted because of the music. Here is a version of the first video without music

    They are going to sell it to the US also, at least as far as i know. But those who buy it has to have acsess to 93 fuel.
