    • Kleemann releases M159 SLS AMG supercharger and claims 762 horsepower - Video and dyno

      Here we officially have the Kleemann supercharger for the M159 SLS AMG the development of which and release for the M156/M159 platform stirred up quite the brouhaha. Regardless of one might think on the matter the fact is the supercharger is here. Kleemann claims 762 horsepower which the dyno they used in Europe shows a corrected 762 PS. For reference, the Weistec SLS 750 Stage I SLS AMG M159 supercharger system puts out 638 horsepower to the wheels on a dynojet with 91 octane from a 2.3 liter twin screw.


      It will be interesting to see how the output differs on a dyno with a greater reference point such as a dynojet to really make for a more solid comparison. The only point of reference applicable at this point would be that Kleemann rates the SLS M159 supercharger at 49 horsepower more than their M156 supercharger kit.

      Weistec for their Stage I M156 supercharger with the 2.3 liter blower rates the output at 637 horsepower and 523 wheel horsepower. Interesting difference in the claimed ratings by Kleemann considering the boost levels and the numbers from the more efficient 2.3 liter twin screw versus the Magnuson TVS2300:


      BenzBoost will bring you an in depth comparison on the superchargers in a separate article. Video below.

The Bullit is EPIC faill, a big heavy V12 that ruined the near 50/50 balance on the car and it only makes 800hp. The Bullit costs $508,000, what do you think Weistec could do to my C BS for that kind of coin? Let me help you out, they are giving me that much HP , and not $#@!ing up the balance of the car, carbon brakes and I will still be over $300k ahead of the game compared to the Brabus.
        There's no point talking $#@! on Brabus. They are a tuner on the level of RUF, higher really. They are filling the void AMG used to before being acquired. It's a different market demographic and goal. They have a bunch of ex-Mercedes guys and it's a very close relationship between the two.

        It was a joke because it made under 650 hp

        Yes. All Brabus has to do is pick up a phone and call Mercedes and they get whatever they want.

        I don't see why it would change or need to. Regardless, nothing wrong with Brabus or their ability.

        Lol, I thought you meant gull wing when you said wing, I thought together bought an entire car. The way you buy cars can you blame me, you make me look frugal the way you throw money at your cars.
