• World Motorsports creating a twin turbo kit for Mercedes 63 AMG Motors (M156/M159) - Prototype SLS AMG Twin Turbo Kit

      This is a rather interesting development in the Mercedes-Benz AMG performance scene. Truth is, World Motorsports is a newer name and one not seen on BenzBoost before. A Mercedes SLS AMG Twin Turbo kit certainly is quite a way to make an entrance. They already seem to have the turbos mounted but hardware is only one part of puzzle. What about the tuning? What about the impact of the torque on the SLS dual clutch transmission? These are just some of the problems posed.

      World Motorsports is located in Torrance, California and Benzboost was invited out to see what they are up to. A very generous offer as most companies won't allow anyone to visit when they are preparing for a show (SEMA) and wrapping up very difficult work. Apparently they are going to try to make it to SEMA in Las Vegas which is less than three weeks away. Not a long window but it would be impressive if they were to make it.

      Plumbing is said to be 80% complete at this point and the car should be hitting the dyno soon. BenzBoost will hopefully be able to provide more info shortly after stopping by the shop. For now, enjoy the development pictures below.

        Based on IP, post, and thread history. Not to mention his wording of posts.

        I'd have to agree. post history and better yet, posting style are totally different. Plus Andy has his core market... he has no relevance in this level of the game. But I could be wrong...I'd love to see @JBond come back LOL

        Id say posting style is spot on, also this is direct competition for him

        Well I'd say it isn't the same style and secondly there is nothing on my side to show it it is him. Also, he's playing fantasy football with us in the GermanBoost league.

        Take a look at the thread he created as well...

        I think we are a while away from closure.

        I'll give them a call this week I guess.

        I spoke with Craig at World Motorsport yesterday. I got some good info, this thing sounds like the real deal. He invited me out to meet, look at the car and take a ride in it. I think they are closer than you guys think, don't think he would have invited me out if it was not close. I might fly out the week after Thanksgiving, I am very interested in their set up.

        If I go it will be early to mid December. I leave for Miami and Jaimaca on Saturday and then I am gone until the 25th of November. I will shoot you a PM when I figure out a specific date but week of the 3rd is looking best for me. How much time do you have? I might be driving my Ford Raptor out there and hitting up Glamis for a day and doing the Raptor Expeditions 1 day run with the guys at Outlaw Off-Road. Raptor seats four so I will have room, all you will need is an open faced helmet and some balls.

        P.S. I just ordered a new Roush Raptor Click here to enlarge

        Glamis is pretty awesome, I need to figure out how to justify a badass sand rail. And motorhome to go with it...

        Glamis gets it's fair share of rednecks but it's fun for one day and overnight. Great dunes, bonfires, booze and boobs, what's not to enjoy? Airing out a Ford Raptor with King Suspension at 85mph is an experience in itself.
