The top of the line, intercooled ESS Gen.3 S54 VT2-575 supercharger system for BMW M3 E46 produces 575hp and 360lb-ft of torque at 10psi of boost. A 232hp gain over stock, eclipsing the output of a Nissan GTR! Featuring the highly efficient, extremely durable and self-contained Vortech V3 supercharger unit in Si trim, the supercharger is capable of producing up to 775hp.
The VT2-575 comes with a completely new 7rib belt drive system with speed optimized power steering and water pump rotation for track duty, a high capacity front mount intercooler (FMIC) and a specially developed cast aluminum intake manifold assembly with an integrated high capacity bypass valve designed not only for optimum flow, but for minimal weight to not disrupt the iconic chassis balance of the M3. The VT2-575 is a complete system with everything you need and is easily upgradeable as all the major hardware components are the same all the way up to our VT3-700.
T VT2-575 supercharged engine providing optimum ignition timing under all conditions recalibrated EGA’s for quicker throttle response, recalibrated VANOS control, and perfectly optimized fuel delivery. The dyno limiter and top speed governors are also removed. The stock ECU software will be saved and can easily be restored in the future.
Power delivery is 100% smooth and OEM-caliber. The car behaves just like stock until you demand power, then the car completely transforms providing brutal acceleration normally reserved for pure race cars.
The ESS S54 Gen.3 VT systems include a significantly improved main bracket design with 60% stronger structural rigidity, an improved 3 roller belt drive system with improved belt traction in severe racing conditions and also newly developed one-piece silicone discharge hoses for SC to IC connections for improved flow and ease of installation.
And like all ESS supercharger systems, the S54 VT Gen.3 kits are tested and tuned for over 50,000 street and track miles on multiple vehicles throughout the world, 60+ hours on our load dyno, full load top speed endurance testing on the German Autobahn, and final certification laps on the Nurburgring.
