eas | First Look: ESS VT2-575 Dyno (S54)

For the E46M3 guys. This is a VT2-575 kit that is in final stages of development. This test was done with 9.8 psi and 93 AKI fuel.



Not bad for 128K mi on the original engine.

The VT2-575 kit hardware is the same as the VT2-550, with more boost and revised tuning.

More to come.

So, stock internals correct? If so, pretty impressive results. Any concern about the stock block here pushing over 9psi?

Nothing on our end yet, since the car is located overseas. However, we should be getting some updates shortly.

Putting the finishing touches on a VT2-500 install at the moment - the numbers are very impressive. More to come shortly.
