The TS exhaust port was custom-designed by Lysholm for us to tune the exhaust pop to a low rumble on the I6. Even the intermanifold is designed to control noise as well as cooling and airflow. We wanted it to be virtually silent until our customers felt like letting people know by simply pressing the accelerator.

I have a question, how much maintenance is required for the TS as compared to a Centrifugal SC?

Thanks!

Even less so, there is no cleaning or re-oiling of intake filters and our Lysholm compressor uses lifetime oil.

I understand how that post may have come off as "spam", but the thread was not started by ESS but by a member looking for information.

However, to answer your question

- There is already a fully running, tracked ZHP with an AA Twin Screw setup on it that has been running for the past two months and is the first. I believe the post that came off as "spam" should have included some links to the actual videos that have been posted of the car running along with sound clips as that was your question.

I wont post links as to prevent hard feelings, but if interested feel free to ask and then I will post them

Yes, we can ship anywhere in the world.

The ESS TS was designed from the beginning to be at home as a daily driver and as a track unit. It works flawlessly in both situations.

Regardless of intent, Omar's post was completely OT becuase it didn't answer anyone's question about anything. It was an opportunistic post pitching AA's product because there was a "captive audience." The post would have been more appropriate in the AA TS thread as an update or in a new thread of its own.

Speaking of new threads, why don't you start a thread of your own if you have videos to share? Then you don't have to worry about offending anyone.

How much does shipping cost to Bahrain approx?

Is there anyway to finance the deal? (like credit cards)

Will it cause damage to my step tranny?

Videos were already posted but since there was a question for videos/soundclips, I dont see how that required a new thread and that is why I didn't link them.
Either way, back OT
