Mercedes Benz C63 AMG
Another Kiwi fav, the Merc C63 AMG. It's smart, polite and even diplomatic on the outside, but there is a screaming beast within, waiting to be summoned by that pedal on the right. However we can bring out more of that wild side of this beauty. The beast produces 457HP and 600N.m torque by factory and now she's got 30HP and 50N.m more, enhanced throttle response, widened torque curve, and minimized lag. Yeaaah.
|year:||2008 - 2014|
|engine:||6.2 litre 32-valve V8 petrol|
what you get
- We can add 30HP to the factory 457HP - resulting 487HP
This helps the car in maintaining the top legal speed, which is typically a challenge for any vehicle on a hilly road. This is a result of horsepower utilisation at the high end.
- We can add 50N.m torque to the factory 600N.m - resulting 650N.m The vehicle will have heaps more grunt down low, will have more aggressive city drivability, especially at intersections, green lights, etc. In addition also better towing abilities since torque is responsible for getting the dead weight moving until you reach travel speeds.
- We can extend the dynamic RPM range which is responsible for delivering maximum power and torque in specific revs. By widening this range, the engine will have no chance to get outside of the top performing torque range, meaning no more lag while shifting gears.
- We’d also recommend increasing the boost pressure, optimizing the acceleration mixtures by adjusting certain parameters: aka Air Fuel Ratio (AFR), keeping Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) down and injection duration. These will ultimately give you that smooth power delivery that you’re after throughout the whole RPM range.
Fuel consumption is another beast altogether and since everyone loves fuel efficient vehicles it’s worth to mention how and why engines can save dollars. There are 5 main factors that determine fuel consumption and these are:
- engine controlling maps in ECU software
- condition of engine
- customized rims and tyres
- driver’s driving style
