Questions ts2+ ess 330i Smg

Hello my supercharged friends
I have an issue and questions for you, and would be happy to get answers from those who made it on practice...
I've have Ess Ts2+ kit on the car plus i have SS exaust, copy of SS headers, and wanna make it faster...
1st question is i have an Smg 5 speed and don't want to change it for manual...
But my shifting RPM is 6300, and i know that manual 330 shifts at 6800... what can i do to make my smg work at that rpm???
2nd question is that i want to install camshafts... i read about vac motorsport camshaft, but i think it's too expensive 1400 $ + 100 for instalation tools...
Schrick camshafts are cheaper and they have 248|256 degree... but do they fit?
3rd do i need to change my software if i change my camshafts? or it fits?

My Ride: 04 330i SMG TT STG1
Hello from another SMG/SSG user!

I don't know if ESS can change the SSG programming. It looks like your redline was already increased to 6800 RPM according to their page.
Schrick cams may require tuning, ZHP ones will not if your ESS tune is still using a MAF (which it looks like from the pictures).

Hope this is helpful.

Yeap, on neutral position it RPM is 6800, but on the gear it's 6300...
About cams, question was shrick cams 248|256 or i really need to pay more for vac camshafts... 400$ is a lot to pay overprice... but i wan't to be sure...

Why don't you use the camshafts supplied by ESS which are supposed to be for the TS2+

Because on Ess shop there are no cams for me... Their is on Vac but the price 1500$ is a little high i think... If there is no choise, i'll buy them...

Questions ts2+ ess 330i Smg

Ess used to sell 248/256 schrick cams, they are correct for the ts2+. Did you specify ssg/ smg 330 when you got your dme flashed?
