E46 M3 VT2-575 Supercharger System (Gen.3)
The top of the line, intercooled Gen.3 S54 VT2-575 supercharger system 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 efficent,
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.
The supercharger system includes the ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable and specific ESS
engine software that is perfectly calibrated for the 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 E-Flash allows the end user to upload the supercharger ECU
software from any PC running Windows XP or newer and includes a full diagnostic
and code clearing capability. Any future ESS software updates can be
received by email and loaded directly to the car. 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 transform providing
brutal acceleration normally reserved for pure race cars.
The ESS S54 Gen.3 VT systems includes a significantly improved main bracket
design with 60% stronger structural rigidity, an improved 3 roller beltdrive
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.
The system maintains all OBD-II functions and it is backed by a comprehensive 2
year, unlimited mileage warranty program. This complete system is 100%
bolt on and includes everything you need. Installation takes 6-8 hours using
normal hand tools and no irreversible modifications to the car are
