SMSTuned // ESS Supercharged BMW E92 M3
Whooweee, this thing is icy
The E92 M3 had to work hard to impress the most hardcore straight-sixer folks that it was worthy of being in a M car, the V8 engine may have broke M tradition being naturally aspirated but that doesn’t mean it is destined not to be a future classic with its cultish following. All hail the S65 engine!
This beauty is equipped with A VT series supercharger system from ESS – this gives the M3 speed, power, quality and beauty in design through superior engineering and has a history of kits that bring cars to legendary status.
ESS’ supercharger kit improves upon the OEM intake manifold, adding in a custom cast manifold ‘ribbed’ with optimized runners flowing into CNC’d aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum velocity stacks to smooth out airflow and reduce disruptive turbulence entering the throttle bodies, and is centered around the market’s largest liquid intercooler system. This ensures the intake charge temps remain in check during prolonged use on the track, autobahn, or street. The manifold was designed not only for optimum flow, but to be both aesthetically pleasing while keeping weight to a minimum to not disrupt the iconic handling balance of the M3.
