• 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.

        funny....more and more members are saying you could have been more proactive with craig which all I have been saying from the get go.

        Unfortunately, instead of "calling me out" you just interjected negativity not realizing the state of events or making any relevant criticism It was instead an opportunity for you to attack baselessly as usual. Please let me know what BS is going on?
        Baseless? Ha!


        You don't seem to understand, there is nothing further that needs to be done. There is a time and place for a meet and we can go from there. You go chase whatever you want to go chase, my course of action is already selected and will proceed with or without your consent.
        Ego.... "Without your consent" Did daddy not hug you enough or something?

        You had no choice as I was quite correct. Yes, I was right. Whether you are nice or not doesn't change it.
        I said you were going more as a Journalist than a consumer. That doesn't make you a Journalist. Keep congratulating yourself on being right all the time. I was right about a few things too around here. Click here to enlarge


        What is with this lecture? Respecting other peoples opinions? Last I checked this site does that to a greater degree than any other. It respects peoples opinions too much at times which is a criticism I often get for leaving discussion far too open. So what are you talking about? Me disagreeing and defending myself is not me being disrespectful to your opinion.
        One day you will figure it out.


        Would you like a phone call during my bath so you can be sure I'm enjoying it? I can't be sure if that's what would make you happy or not.
        LOL. No thats ok.

        I'm not disagreeing I could expend more effort "chasing" as you seem to expect me to but I'm content simply going to the meet, introducing myself, and going from there. I do not feel a need to push or escalate anything as you seem to be implying. Craig took things negatively anyway and I think maybe some time for him to work on the project as well as for everyone to step away from this for a second may let cooler heads prevail.

        Your approach may be more aggressive but I feel mine is more mature and the right course of action in this instance. I also may be privy to information you are not regarding it. Regardless, the conclusion is not that "it's not, blame everyone else" it is that I'm choosing a more benign approach instead of essentially barging in and demanding information.

        I didn't say it did, I also said I was going more as a journalist than as a consumer which changes the approach. You agreed, I was correct, thanks.

        Respecting someone's opinion is not blindly agreeing with them. The ability to disagree is a sign of respect for differing opinions in of itself.

        The ability to disagree without alienating the other person or disrespecting their opinion is your problem. It always has been.

        Craig said to come anytime...how is that barging in and demanding information and perhaps I am wrong but that comment from Craig did not sound negative.

        Privy to information? You were perhaps one of the last people to know who tuned the car and you were at SEMA...give me a break.

        Anyways this has about run its course. Don't drop the hairdryer in the bath.

        Coming in at any time I please once is disrespectful and obviously "anytime" doesn't make sense. You assume nothing else is going on except them waiting for my arrival? These dudes are busy. It doesn't matter as there is a date set, so why do you continue to harp on an irrelevant point that obviously I'm not going to follow? Decision has been made, it's over with.

        So I can't learn anything since then that you might not know? I can't possibly have multiple sources? I can't possibly have heard things in person you haven't? Give me a break.

        There wasn't anyone there for me to talk to, that was a fun "chase" but apparently not good enough. I just didn't comment on the tuning without knowing 100% and provided supplemental info to those who didn't. Kind of the right thing to do I would say.

        What a surpise an only child. Amazing how I called that one. That explains you being a little douche with a huge sense of entitlement. You never had anyone to share your cookies with anyone. LOL

        Never claimed to be but I do have automotive journalist credentials to a greater degree than you do or will.
        If I cared to be one I wouldn't put limitations on myself. I could easily become what you feel is such an amazing accomplishment. Its not my thing.

        Me and it seems like everyone else around here. Run away? I left, a big difference. I see even those who liked you have since come to their senses. LOL. Where is your friend LZH?

        How is your car BTW?

        MBW is larger? Wow, is that your forum? Oh... you are using internet brands forum against me. Surprising a company with 99.8 million to play with and a 12 year head start on their forum is larger. I mean, what a surprise. I'm sure they owe their success to you. Although this forum does owe its success to me.

        What are you talking bout 1 year later 5k more users? Your stats are off, that's because you have no stats to go on. We got over 1k last month alone Click here to enlarge Don't want to let reality mess with you or anything.

        But thank you for attempting to put me down when posts, new users, activity, data, and sponsorship is all at an all time high. Perhaps I could introduce you to HRE, Vorsteiner, Wheels Boutique, Velos Design Werks, Active Autowerke, Weistec, Renntech, Mod Bargains, Cobb Tuning, Euro Enginuity, EFI Logic, Eisenmann, CP-E, AR Design, BMS, Evolve, Jaws, Precision Motorsport, VAC, Undercover, Horsepower Freaks, Vargas Turbo, PTF, Gintani, or OE Tuning?

        I mean, it's a modest list but hey how many sponsors, how many users, and how well is your forum doing? Not Internet Brands, your forum? Oh, not as well huh? That's ok, don't worry about it, I'm sure you could do better "if" you wanted to.

        Just like how you could do better than me in the forum world but "that isn't your thing" right? Convenient, all these things you talk about but don't do as well as I do.

        When I left last year you had 10K users. Now you have 15K. 10+5=15. This the part where you BS me again and tell me you get 18 million hits over the holidays? LOL

        Funny how you always compare me to you as a basis for your success. I dont run a forum so there is no comparison. The fact that you run a forum and I dont doesnt make you successful in running a forum. Why do you act like your doing something that I would want to do?? LOL


        Uh oh, someone is losing their cool.
        Indeed. You are. Insults came from you first. Click here to enlarge

        Because I am not doing them nor do I care to? A monkey can do your job and probably do it better to be honest. You regurgitate articles written by others and even borrow their pictures without their consent and rewrite what has already been written. Do yourself a favor and just link and give credit to your source rather than pretend you are some kind of journalist.

        WOW! The meter might fall off. I bet I can find a forum about Vaginas that has more concurrent users on than here. LOL

        I take it back Joe, when I said "Same old Joe" that wasnt a correct statement. You are even more of a douche than you were 1 year ago. LOL

        But with this little spat I have been given insight as to why you are such the little douche. An only child. Its not your fault in the end though so I forgive you.

        18 million hits? I would never say something so absurd. Try just under 50 million sweetheart. Whoops, just about tripled since last time you were here:

        Damn straight, so stop trying to use others accomplishments as your own. As of right now, there is no comparison between you and I as I'm blowing you out of the water. Step up to the plate if you want to compete, until then, run along child and keep talking about what others are doing, not you.
