Another 330ci ZHP TS2+

Hi guys, just wanted to introduce myself to the FI world. I've had my car since it was born and love every little thing about it. So I spent the money to let her know that I adore her

I've just recently had an ESS TS2+ installed into my car along with other necessary additions to make my baby purr. I started out slow with wheels and muffler. Wasn't enough to show my feelings. So I treated her with some TC Klines which work exceptionally well. Now, since I had the money available I threw in quite a large amout of money to put in an ESS TS2+, Schrick cams, SS Headers, upgrades flywheel and clutch, and a custom exhaust. The exhaust goes from the headers to one big 3" pipe all the way back to a Magnaflow muffler. Think I might need a resonator, but for right now there are no restrictionns as far as air flow from the exhaust. I did get a 200 cell cat put in. Seems like its just for looks because I'm pretty sure I won't pass emissions.

Just want to give a big thanks to SCR Performance that installed my system located in Loveland, CO. They did an awesome just of putting everything together. I'd also want to put a shout out to ESS for having an amazing supercharger system. It feels like a whole new car and put a huge smile on my face everytime I even think of driving. Awesome product guys.


Here's a night video that we made yesterday in Longmont, CO. Just one pull. The guys at SCR were saying that I'm probably running about 5 psi due to altitude. I didn't want to get the pulley that will bring me to 8.5 psi since I'll be moving to Georgia next fall.




I'll only post pics if people really want to see them. Just let me know. Thanks for reading. (if you did )

Dyno is coming shortly. I have a before and after, but can't find my before as of right now. Like I said though, my car is running really low psi right now so probably won't get good figures. Its about 6800 elevation here, but would be interesting to see how much it makes.

The exhaust is so deafening. I almost had to let off the gas it was so unbearable. Sounds like a friggin race car.

Welcome brother!

I doubt you're only at 5psi though, you wouldn't pull on an M3 like that with only 5psi... right?

Wicked!! Post some pictures. I already know what it looks like but come on, pimp out that car! lol

The altitude affects the M3 as well, hence he could be running only 5psi.

Great to see another ESS TS 330!!

I also don't understand why you are staying with the TS2 pulley instead of going to the TS2+ pulley. You have the correct flash on your DME?

To me it just seems like you are missing out on HP that you paid for.

Ok guys here's the results. The first is the uncorrected and the second is corrected. I pulled on Danny with the uncorrected.


To answer the questions, I have the 8.5 pulley in. That's the reason that my boost is getting jacked by the altitude. I could have gotten a smaller pulley to get back to the psi needed. I do have the right flash, though it looks like I'm running super rich. Not good.

Sounds like you are right. They didn't have a boost guage at the place I did the Dyno so I can't go off fact. I was just telling what I heard. I think, from the figures I would venture to guess around 6, maybe 6.5? Please correct me if I'm wrong as I'd like to know.

Wow.... it's amazing how much altitude affects horsepower. I knew it always did, but that is A LOT.

As far as the tune, better rich than lean.

My Ride: is 5 in 1.
Send a message via AIM to broach328
the reason he isnt going to 8.5psi now is because the air is less dense making less boost. if he were to get 8.5psi where he is now, when he moves to GA, the air is more dense and could overboost causing problems. thats my guess

My Ride: '89 944 Turbo
Remember the M3 is down at least 18% due to altitude. My car uncorrected was 400rwhp, corrected was 487rwhp on the same dyno.

I see 2-2.5 psi less due to altitude...
