BMW E46 M3 - S54 - VT2-550 Supercharger System by ESS Performance Products

The intercooled ESS Tuning BMW E46 M3 - S54 - VT2-550 supercharger system comes with a high capacity front mount intercooler (FMIC) and a specially developed cast aluminium intake manifold assembly with an integrated high capacity bypass valve designed not only for optimum flow, but for minimal weight to not disrupt the iconic chassis balance of the M3.

ESS Tuning Quality

Like all ESS supercharger systems, this kit was tested and tuned for over 50,000 street and track miles on multiple vehicles throughout the world, 60+ hours on the load dyno, full load top speed endurance testing on the German Autobahn, and final certification laps on the Nuerburgring.

Performance enhancement

The system is based upon Vortech's efficient and reliable gear driven and self contained V3 supercharger. The system includes the ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable and specific ESS engine software that is perfectly calibrated for the VT2-550 supercharged engine providing optimum ignition timing under all conditions, recalibrated throttle control for quicker throttle response, recalibrated VANOS control, and perfectly optimized fuel delivery. The dyno limiter and top speed governors are also removed. Power delivery is 100% smooth and OEM-caliber. The car behaves just like stock until you demand power, then the car completely transform providing brutal acceleration normally reserved for pure race cars.

Installation

The system installs in 6 to 8 hours using normal hand tools and no irreversible modifications to the car are necessary.

The ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable allows the end user to upload the supercharger ECU software directly to the car from any PC running Windows XP or newer. The system also includes full diagnostic and code clearing capability. Any future ESS software updates can be received by email and loaded directly to the car. The stock ECU software will be saved and can easily be restored in the future.
