• 1/4 mile result for ESS Supercharged E39 M5 - 12.2@116, 60-130 10.83, comparable to bolt-on E92 M3

      We rarely see ESS cars make it out to the strip so it was refreshing to see an E39 with the ESS SC out at MIR. Car is running a higher boost pulley than the standard setup, 92 mm, pushing about 8 pounds of boost. The car has exhaust along with 3.45 gears and has run a 60-130 of 10.83. We congratulate the owner for getting out there and to put these numbers in context, the car compares favorably with a bolt on E92 M3.

        In some ways it is, displacement for example. NA gains can be made on it though.
