The ESS E39 M5 VT1-560 supercharger system delivers unparalleled acceleration and everyday driveability matched with the reliability customers have come to expect from ESS.

Component quality matches or exceeds BMW OEM specification throughout the kit.
The system is based upon Vortech's efficient and reliable gear driven and self-lubricated V-3 supercharger, featuring helical cut gears for quiet operation. The redesigned ESS MSS52 engine control software is perfectly calibrated for the supercharged engine providing optimum ignition timing under all conditions, recalibrated EGas for quicker throttle response, recalibrated VANOS control and perfectly optimized fuel delivery ensures that the engine is operating ideally under all conditions.
The system maintains all OBD-II functions, and it is backed by a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty. The system installs in 8-10 hours using normal hand tools and no irreversible modifications to the car are necessary.
*The ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable option allows the end user to upload the supercharger ECU software directly to the car from any PC running Windows XP or newer. The system also includes 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.
