    • Weistec Engineering 3.0 liter twin screw SLS AMG M159 V8 supercharger kit preview

      Weistec has several supercharger options available for the M156 V8 found in 63 AMG vehicles including 50 State Legal, Stage I, Stage II, Stage II, and Stage III kits. The SLS AMG has a slightly different motor (M159) and layout and thus far Weistec has offered a 2.3 liter supercharger for the SLS they call their SLS 750 system. Recently on the Benzboost M156/M159 forums users asked where the 3.0 liter blower for the SLS AMG M159 was and now they have their answer. It's right here.

      Weistec brought out their SLS AMG fitted with a 3.0 liter twin screw to the Mercedes Madness event this past weekend in Anaheim, California. As you can see in the photos below, Weistec is running the 3.0 liter on the SLS and doing durability testing in anticipation of official release. The supercharger system is still being tweaked but this is what Benzboost learned.

      Expect horsepower in the 7XX wheel range on 91 octane pump gas. Over 700 wheel on pump gas? Incredible. There has been some testing on other fuels and horsepower in the 8XX wheel range has been achieved on stock M159 internals with the 3.0 liter blower.

      This is going to be an unrivaled options for the SLS AMG in the marketplace offering the most horsepower and torque. If you have an SLS AMG and want big performance that can be used daily on pump gas, look no further. Expect an official release before the end of the year.

        Sure, why not.

        Let's make it positive for everyone. I always try to emphasize positive over negative as this forum is about positive car enthusiast interaction ultimately.

        Same thing happened to me a bit ago.

        Edit: I spoke to soon regarding the positive rep. It won't let me. It says I must spread reputation around.
