Dyno Comparison: Maximum PSI turbo kit vs ESS VT2-550

We just finished up a few upgrades and maintenance items on an E46 M3 with an ESS VT2-550 kit that we installed earlier. We got it back on the dyno to get some runs to compare to our E46 M3 turbo kit. I will add that the ESS kit made great numbers for no meth on our dyno(442/294) and the car runs great!

Maximum PSI turbo kit :
8psi, pump gas dyno
Stock section 2, aftermarket muffler

ESS VT2-550 supercharger kit:
9psi, pump gas
Euro M3 headers
High flow cats
3" section 2
Aftermarket muffler
