    • San Diego tuner HG Motorsports displaying tuned M159 SLS AMG strength at the airstrip - Runs vs. ESS-VT2 600 M3, ZR1, and Ford GT

      The SLS AMG in the video below belongs to a tuner out of San Diego California by the name of HG Motorsports. This is really the first BenzBoost has seen of an M156 or M159 tuned by them in action. The car features their ECU tune, long tube headers, Akrapovic titanium exhaust, and HRE P43S wheels. Power figures are not stated and no dyno results were posted showing the gains of the parts but the video clearly shows the car taking on stout competition and doing well.


      The first race is versus an ESS-VT2 600 supercharged E92 M3. Surprisingly, the SLS is able to pull slightly on the supercharged car (unknown if it is a manual or dual clutch trans car). The second race is versus a ZR1 Corvette which appeared to have some traction issues but once it hooked appeared to make up some ground.

      Another impressive run is versus the Ford GT with an upgraded blower. The SLS loses but considering it is naturally aspirated it is impressive how well it hangs with the more powerful GT. This SLS certainly appears to be a well tuned vehicle.

        Yes, they are Global RENNtech dealers partners.
        They made it seem like it was their own tuning. They don't mention Renntech in the mods or videos so glad to know this now.

        Does Dyno Dynamic read low numbers ?

        By default yes but it can be manipulated in a ton of ways with the software.

        I'm not going to get into MHP credibility.
