    Dodson powers the quickest and fastest dual clutch Lamborghini Huracans and Audi R8's. You may remember the earlier version of their upgrade sending the Huracan into the 7's in the 1/4 mile and essentially bitch slapping Heffner and SSP (South Side Performance) back into their places. Dodson and UGR (Underground Racing) are now taking things further with the Promax Version 2 upgrade: What changes in Promax 2.0? They do not say but here is what we know about the previous version: They are up to 18 plates now and maybe more. UGR is the best bet to test this out and push further into the 7's. Dodson is quite simply the best in the business.

    Very cool comparison here featuring three Gen V Vipers. The bolt on car you should be familiar with as a previous article showed it smashing just about everything it raced. The owner definitely can row the gears. The white Viper is an Arrow heads/cam upgraded car. That means roughly 660+ wheel horsepower. Pretty nice naturally aspirated power, right? A stock Viper makes in the ~525 whp range on a Dynojet depending on the correction factor and conditions of course. A bolt on Viper will be just under 600 wheel horsepower with the Arrow PCM. The way the first race goes down is the stock Viper trails badly as it should and the heads/cam car pulls. The second run has the bolt on Viper get the hit against the heads/cam car and the white Viper just can not make up the distance. The final run looks to be a botched start but the bolt on car pulls. Very nice real world comparison.

    Had previously posted some 0-60 performance results with the Kleemann kbox 400cgi, which is overall a pretty strong piggy back tune. Decided to pull the trigger on a full ECU flash because the car felt a little "boosted" and didn't quite have pull on the low end with worse turbo lag than stock. Another reason I decided to get rid of the piggy back was because I felt the ECU and piggy back were "fighting" for power, and sometimes the car felt plain stupid in lower gears. The ECU flash got rid of this issue, and it only keeps getting better the more I drive the vehicle. Overall, my experience with Dennis and the folks at OE tuning was wonderful. Shipped in my ECU and received it back in less than 48 hours. The ECU was programmed with their 93 octane map. Although the car was pretty fast before, it basically went into beast mode with the OE software. First, lets go over driveability. The car is much, much smoother, and the driveability is vastly improved stoplight to stoplight over stock (forget about the piggy back which makes the car faster at the expense of smoothness). There is much less hesitation, the car does not jump between gears, the throttle response is improved, shifts feel strong and crisp, and the car keeps pulling and pulling to a slightly increased redline (which is a nice bonus, thanks OE). Those impressions are just subjective, so here are some numbers. Stock the c400 does 0-60 around 4.6 (on a good day) and 1/4 mile in the low 13's. In my previous posts running the Kleemann kbox, and using the newest model Gtech pro SS (50Hz GPS) to get 0-60 times around 4 seconds flat (with 1 ft rollout standard so around 4.3 sec from an actual stop). I figured the motor was pretty much maxed out so I didn't expect much with the OE tune, but was surprised to see this improve even further by almost 1/4 second. I've attached some photos of the Gtech and a spread sheet of some typical runs below. In addition, it feels like the major improvement in power comes at higher speeds, but I haven't gone to the dragstrip to confirm. If you notice on the spreadsheet, with the Kbox the car hits 70 mph AFTER 330 ft, but with the OE tune, it hits 70 mph well BEFORE 330ft. Also the average 0-70 mph time is improved by over 1/2 second. One of the runs I actually hit 1/8 mile at 7.86 at 92 mph which is pretty bad as* for a non-AMG luxury sedan. Using the OBD port, the car shows 15-16 psi boost and the torque converter is seeing around 580-600 Nm. The motor and tranny don't feel strained while driving as well. OE knows what they are doing. Looking forward to going to the track for some 1/4 mile pulls this fall, and I fully expect this to hit low 12's (more than a full second better than stock, which is insane), as experienced by other members on mbworld. Kudos to OE tuning for turning this car's straight line performance numbers to those found in a brand new C63 S and M3, although I probably wouldn't race those cars around a track Maybe with stage 2/DPs and some new shocks... If you decide to tune this motor, you wont be disappointed with OE and the price is reasonable. I also got a discount for being an MBworld member so don't forget to mention that.
