    A Mercedes-AMG C-Class sedan going head to head on the highway with a Ferrari 458 Italia? Believe it. This is what the turbo era brings us. Obviously the Ferrari is the sportier and more exclusive car and the one we would all want to take home but there is something satisfying about beating up on an exotic. Especially when doing it in a C-Class Mercedes that only needs an ECU flash tune to pull the Ferrari. The tuned C63 M177 has roughly 517 horsepower and 565 lb-ft of torque at the wheels compared to the 458's naturally aspirated V8 with output of 448 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The Ferrari is quite a bit lighter with a quick shifting dual clutch transmission and it is more aerodynamic but that turbo punch up top propels the C63 past it. Great run.

    BoostAddict member LesBaer decided to upgrade his manual 2016 Camaro SS by adding some boost courtesy of the Magnuson TVS2300 Hearbeat LT1 supercharger kit. His numbers are very similar to what a C7 Corvette with the same supercharger kit put down on the dyno with aftermarket headers. More details in LesBaer's own words: Goal - First, find a 4.0/12 second NA car with a near 50/50 weight split that would be fun to toss around on farm roads and equally as fun and comfortable on the highway for my daily commute. Ideally I wanted to be as close to C7 Z06 performance as possible, but didn't need a full-time track car. It was also important that the car be affordable (to purchase, upgrade, insure and repair), so I searched for the best bang for my buck. I also wanted to be sure that the car I chose could be serviced by performance experts local to me. Enter the 2016 2SS - ordered with specific options to accommodate future power upgrades and minimize weight in preparation for the Magnuson TVS2300 Heartbeat super charger. Here's what I started with: With the help of Jannetty Racing, we also added American Racing LT headers (full exhaust system), but kept the stock muffler, retaining full functionality of the NPP system. Here are some shots that show the process. You can see the original Tri-Y headers there. New ARH installed and prep for the Maggie. Jannetty also had my headers ceramic coated to help manage heat. Maggie's installed and you can just barely see the Mishimoto catch can at the bottom of the shot: Here's a great shot of the intercooler with the grill removed. It's only visible up close with the car fully assembled. One last shot of the final under hood assembly And my dyno results (stock Magnuson boost level of 6psi): 563 RWHP, 544 RWTQ ...exactly what the doctor ordered Coming Soon: Wheels and Tires The car hooks up very well with the stock setup, so I'm going to wait for the 1LE MRR replicas. The plan right now is to go with gloss black 20x10 up front and 20x11 in back w/Pilot Super Sports.
