ESS Tuning is a name that has become synonymous with uncompromised performance in the BMW world. With over 2000 S65 supercharger systems sold since 2008, our E9X M3 S65 supercharger kit is by far the most popular BMW supercharger system worldwide.
The intercooled S65 G1 Supercharger System produces a massive 150-180whp gain from stock depending on fuel used and exhaust system installed. It is supplied with both 91AKI/95RON and 93AKI/98RON pulleys as standard.
Our kit improves upon the OEM intake manifold, adding in a custom cast aluminum manifold 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.
The new ESS G1 supercharger head unit is by far the lightest high capacity supercharger in the industry weighing in at only 9.5lbs and offering unparalleled efficiency, build quality and ultra low noise levels. However, what really sets the ESS S65 kit above all the others is our software tuning. For over 22 years, we’ve lived and breathed BMW’s, and it becomes apparent the second you sit behind the wheel of an ESS tuned car. The kit will include the ESS E-Flash OBD2 cable and specific ESS MSS60 engine software that has undergone over a decade of revisions to get perfected to where it is today. The E-Flash allows the end user to upload the supercharger ECU software from any PC running Windows 7 or newer and 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.
The system is backed by a comprehensive 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty program. The kit takes 6-12 hours to install using normal hand tools and no irreversible modification to the car is necessary.
Our kit is a reflection of our zero compromise approach to supercharging. Only the best quality components are granted a place in our kits and you can be sure it all fits with absolute precision. After development, we vigorously test both the hardware and software, putting them through their paces on the street, track, and autobahn. Through this, we achieve reliability and quality that is on-par with the OEM themselves. This helps create the ever-desired OEM+ look for an appearance that says “take me out for a nice dinner, but don’t be afraid to use the back roads and let me loose on the way home.”

This supercharger addresses what BMW didn’t when making this model. The change is radical and so much more than I could have hoped. I had to do a bunch of prep work in order to do the upgrade ie bearings, engine mounts, etc which was t cheap however, the product transforms a 2008 M3 into a monster. Even at todays evolving standards of car. IMO: to spend $8-20K upgrading a car is better than spending $80-150k for something similar
This kit is awesome it does exactly what’s advertised. The boost kicks in about 3K and you feel it all the way to Rev limit. It does not throw you in the seat but you definitely feel a strong pull as the rpms build. The tune is very well thought out. No engine lights no rough idling or misfires. Just press the engine start and you’re ready to rock. You just have to give the car about 200 miles to break in or so as the ECU will adapt to the new set up. The blower itself is quieter than most but you can still hear it. The DCT tuning is also awesome because it takes all the sloppiness out of the shifting. The clutches grab harder and faster during up and down shifting. Overall the kit just wakes up the car and turns the aggression level up a few notches but still keeps the car refined. I have experienced no loss in gas mileage either as the car seems to run more efficiently. The G1 kit makes the car extremely quick as it only using 6-7 lbs of boost. Now I’m curious to see what the G1+ has for me. Talk to you soon AJ!
