HOWEVER, I somehow doubt the whole kit will be 5k. I think you're talking more 15k or more here. Think about it: Supercharger, then ECU, Fuel components, etc etc ..... I dunno man...

As for the pricing - I didn't ask for anything. This is what I was told. This is what they're shooting for. Our engines won't require as large a SC unit as bigger engines, so the basic parts should be cheaper than the larger capacity engines. The biggest cost of development will be the tuning as everyone knows.

Please, email ESS to let them know we're interested in them developing something for our cars. I posted a link to this thread on the Z4 and X3 board too.

I'm going to send the link to this thread to ESS as well.

Is it a long-shot? Of course, we have nothing but disappointment up until now. ESS is a one of the best companies out for aftermarket SC kits. This is our best shot at this.

If the boost is upwards of 350hp at the wheels, I can see myself spending $6500 installed; however, our trannys are not meant for that kind of power, so I don't know. So long as you don't race it and push too hard too often, somewhere in the low 300s should be no problem.

I can never see myself owning a turbo that isn't a Porsche or a supercar. Turbos, IMO, don't belong on daily drivers except on those small 4-5 cylinders.

Weren't they designing one for the M54 power plant? I could have swore I'd seen some CAD design drawings of it.

At this point they are CONSIDERING it. There is nothing definite yet. We need to let them know there is a need. EVERYONE must contact them if we want them to move forward.

And no, it's not going to be done tomorrow. If they do get the go ahead to move forward with development, it's going to take a little time. The goal here is to get them moving on this.

As for the transmission and rear strength etc.
Do you think the E9X M3 was designed to handle 650hp? ESS makes kits up to that HP for that car. The M3 transmission isn't strong enough for the 335D! That's why the 335D only comes with an automatic because the M3 manual isn't rated for 425 ft lbs of torque.
Will there be issues with our cars? Only if you beat the crap out of it.
I can see the clutch being the weakest link. Luckily, Clutchmasters makes clutches for our cars.

It's only 6000 for a stage 1 on my s54 through ess. 5k sounds reasonable and if I have my 328 still. I would, but I just don't know about this gm tranny BMW gave us autos...

Wow, the $1,000-$2,000 range for performance exhaust + intake is a tough pill to swallow for little performance gain....$5k for that much of a change?! That would be a bargain!
