    • M113 Kompressor V8 (W211 E55 AMG) supercharger upgrade coming soon from Weistec Engineering

      Here is a little teaser of the upcoming M113K supercharger upgrade from Weistec Engineering. The supercharger used will be a 3.0 liter unit which is larger than the blower used for the M156 kits. It will produce much more power with much less heat than the stock unit. In addition, Weistec will be seeking CARB approval for the Stage I which considering the precedent set with the M156 kit they should able to achieve again making for 2 CARB legal Mercedes supercharger offerings.

      There will also be an optional 82mm throttle body inlet. Many guys with the M113K are already running an 82mm conversion which will make this a seamless upgrade. Stage I will come first with focus on CARB exemption and then Stage II and perhaps more will be on the way. This will be the first supercharger upgrade kit for the platform and it would appear Weistec is blazing a trail yet again. More details to come on a very exciting development for the supercharged 55 AMG platforms.

My vehicle is one of their test vehicles for their M156 platform product line and there is lots of behind the scenes stuff and prototpye stuff being tested for both platforms as I type this. They are not the type of company to rush something to market to make a few extra bucks. The short wait will be well worth it for anyone that purchases one of these, you can rest assured that it will be reliable and powerful once it's released. The fact that they have now released this info tells me that they must be getting very close to a release date on this product, I have know about this M113 blower for several months now so that should tell you the amount of thought, R & D and testing that they have been doing.
        I want to add that they are meticulous and professional.

        I am pretty curious to why this blower would be a 3.0L and the M156 is only a 2.3L

        Simple my friend. The M156 blower was sized for small to medium boost do to the engines HIGH compression ratio.

        The E55 motor was a FI engine, and as such can handle MUCH higher boost, so it needs a LARGER Supercharger.

        Because this will require more boost since you aren't adding it to a high compression motor that is already making good power but one that is already supercharged.

        Hope Weistec will touch the V6 (M272) someday.

        I thought this was a 2.9 but I must have been mistaken.

        You guys might be right. Although its not that it needs more boost its that it has to overcome the lower compression ratio to create the same static compression. Maybe we will see this charger in the St3 M156's if there ever will be such a thing.

        It must suck when you know what is happening from the inside and you cannot blurt it out. There is a lot of teasing going on and I am very anxious to know. The good thing is knowing that Stg2+ is not the end of the road.

        Does the road ever really come to an end? Usually money comes to an end before anything else.

        Do the Stage 2 plus the heads, you will be VERY pleased with the results. It's powerful, reliable and proven, you can't go wrong.

        Will this be enough to get me to a mid 10 assuming I am a perfect driver and I got huge drag radials fitted?
