Fueling is provided by new, larger direct replacement Bosch Motorsport fuel injectors.

With an extremly effecient design and perfectly tuned software the ESS S54 M3 VT Series supercharger system delivers supercar performance along with the quality and reliability ESS customers have come to expect. This kit is designed as a 100% bolt on package with no irreversible custom fabrication to the vehicle.

The VT1-445 is easily upgradeable as the inevitable power addiction sets in. The same basic V3Si supercharger unit and major hardware components are used all the way up to our VT3-700 version of the kit.

And, like all ESS supercharger systems, the S54 VT Gen.3 kits are tuned and tested 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. Additionally, all of our systems include our standard 2yr/unlimited mileage warranty program and our renowned customer service and support.
