This is what ESS Rep emailed me... If I still have the 6...

The kit is almost completed in R&D, it will be a phenomenal kit which will be available for both the N62B44 and N62B48 engines in all chassi types. ETA is June/July 2010. Pictures and details will be published in April/May.
The kit will be available in both intercooled and non-intercooled (upgradeable) versions, and it uses the new Eaton TVS supercharger unit, similar to the one found on the new Corvette ZR1.

I just spoke to the technical rep over in Norway, I think thats there H/O, the kit is being designed in US as tbal has informed us, i had thrown barrage of question at them,the piower output for the auto tranny will be in the region of 100-120 bhp, it will come with the ECU and the gear box software as it would need to be recalibrated, i also asked about the side effects to the engine such as the durability of the engien components after installing the kit, too early to say I guess. The price range will be in the 8-9K dollars bracket. Its pretty much a plug n play kit. Cant wait for this kit to release. but im not sure about the potential long-term issues it can cause, any thoughts on this as our engine is very restrictive compare to conventional tuning.
