Flash at home is an option now on VFE systems.

Our Z4M Coupe should be on the dyno today, testing the VF420 (non-intercooled) version first, then upgrading to VF480 and eventually VF570 (intercooled systems)step-by-step to show progress on the same vehicle.

First kit needs to be tested both on track and in heavy start and stop traffic.

If they stay the same as the m3 with the z4m as they have so far with this kit then stage 3 570hp/380tq is $9,900! that beats ESS stage 2 by quite a bit $4,000 cheaper for more power!!! ESS does not even have there 550hp kit state side yet.

Hopefully this quality competition with create a more reasonable market for FI on our chasis...

the issue on the z4m platform is traction, i think the vf 570, ess 550 are going to be useless, i think your be much better getting a stage 2 and concentrate on suspension and lightening the vehicle...

power is nothing without control......
