    That's a thought. These kits are what, $5k now? Do you happen to know what these are making for power (with headers) on a stock M54?

    Looking at the TS3 + costs to build the bottom end with their low comp setup..... Chevy LSX would make more sense $$ wise + power would be better, not to mention the power curve....

    Regular TS2 or TS2+ compared to S54..... S54 for sure!

    Yeah, see, I couldn't do that. The newer TS2 kits have a slightly different type intercooler hoses, they aren't ribbed and don't flex as well I dont think. I tried doing what he did there and the hose would kink and collapse on itself.

    +10hp for ZHP... dont forget the 10hp! lol

    ESS rates there stuff fairly conservatively too, which I respect a lot. They value not disappointing their customers vs bragging rights.

    Just a heads up on the TS2 systems. ESS purchased the last of the available and remaining cores from the company that made the TS2 body and main supercharger component. That particular company is no longer making them any longer and ESS has all the remaining stock out there that will ever be available.

    What does this mean? Once the stock of TS2 systems is out of inventory at ESS, then that's it, no more will ever be available. Period!

    So all that being said, this is now a dwindling supercharger system and will (eventually) be a rare system to own/find. When I was at the shop while they were working on my car, I saw about 2 dozen cores sitting on the shelf. They may have had more around the shop but that is just what I personally saw there. From what I gathered talking to them, their main focus moving forward will be on the VT1 kits.


    I really have no idea what I am doing
