  3. EAS Project Z4M Update

    Our project Z4M got its latest round of mods just in time for Bimmerfest this year. Following its recent 525hp ESS supercharger installation, we installed a black StopTech big brake kit in the front and rear, satin black 19" Rays 57 Motorsport wheels and APR Performance's newest carbon fiber front wind splitter. This E86 M car is really coming together; very few other BMWs that we've had the opportunity of driving provide a similar level of feedback, handling and fun all in one package. While this Z4M is built primarily with weekend trackdays in mind, it's so fun to drive that it commutes to the eas office everyday. Enjoy.

  4. New ESS VT2-525 Supercharger for Z4M

    The VT2-525 supercharger system is the latest kit released by ESS for the E85/6 Z4M platforms. With a 162whp and 80 ft-lb TQ gain after installation, this kit certainly isn't for the faint of heart! The ESS VT2-525 differs from it's VT1-445 predecessor with it's Air/Air intercooler system, keeping intake charge temperatures nice and cool. This is especially helpful for extended 20+ minute sessions. An upgraded Setrab oil cooler replaced the OEM unit with heavy duty brackets to keep everything in place as if it were offered by factory.

    Big injectors are included, the fueling alone is rated up to 475whp. With a jump in boost from 5psi to 7psi, the S54 transforms into a beast after installation. A huge air/air intercooler fits cleanly behind the factory bumper cover - giving a tease of what's underneath the hood. Rotomolded intake tract rivals the factory pieces. Heavy duty hardware shows the kit is extremely well engineered. New billet crank and water pump pulleys are included.

    ESS knocked it out of the park wit this kit. Those in the SoCal area, feel free to drop by and see the Z4M in person.
