My Ride: 323i
FS: ESS SuperCharger for 323/328 or 325/330...

FS: ESS SuperCharger for 323/328 or 325/330...

Original Kit Model:

98-00 323i/Ci 6.5PSI 265HP VT 108-21x 5495.00

1. Kit was originally bought 2nd hand from another member of this board.
2. It was missing a bunch of parts: NEW porche Injectors, Dip stick, Software, MAF cable, etc.
3. I spent an additional $2k to restore the kit with brand new parts directly from ESS Tuning of Norway.
4. Since then I put around <10k miles on the kit.
5. I also painted the tubing RED, usually it only comes in silver or black. It's very easy to paint whatever color matches your car
6. I am selling because I decided to go with M3 Engine Swap. READ ABOUT IT HERE.
7. I spent $400 sent the blower back to Vortech Engineering to have it rebuilt: New Seals + Bearings, Covers electronically checked, Basically brand new blower
8. I had the blower rebuilt because if I was the buyer I would liked the same to be done for me.
9. The kit is complete except the supercharger pully was damaged when it was taken off for rebuild.
10. Why didn't I buy a replacement pully? Because gives the buyer the option to choose their boost 5-8psi.
11. I have confirmed with ESS that their SC software is self adjustable to 8psi.
12. You can read about my install on my webpage located HERE.
13. The kit is located in socal.
14. I have also include a brand new air filter from ESS...you also get my Dinan CAI filter...

323/328 Owners

Since my car was a 323i I will trade you my ECU in the kit so you don't have to spend another $1k for ESS software.

325/330 Owners

To my knowledge(if im wrong please let me know), the kit is exactly the same except the coupler into the engine and for the MAF sensor.
You can get these couplers from ESS for very cheap.
You will need to get the SC software from ESS.

-------------

To this day, I have spent close to $5k on this Supercharger setup.

I am asking for $4500 for everything, you are basically getting a brand new blower.

Please help me out by offsetting the cost of my M3 Engine Swap =)

installation should run you 1k...6.5psi of boost is actually quite low and shouldn't be harmful to your car...there are quite a few people on this board with supercharged cars...
