    • Kleemann's 770+ horsepower Mercedes-Benz C197 SLS AMG M159 V8 supercharger system released - Dyno, video

      The SLS AMG is already a very powerful car in stock form with its excellent naturally aspirated 6.2 liter M159 AMG built V8. Taking such a great motor and adding a little boost can only make it better right? How about to the tune of 770 horsepower from the stock 562-583 (depending on model year). Kleemann did provide a dyno substantiating their horsepower claims showing a peak of 770.4 horsepower a few hundred rpm before redline.

      As Kleemann is based in Denmark BenzBoost.com is not familiar with the dyno used or how this dyno would translate to numbers at the wheels on Dynojet to put the figures in context. There is obviously no doubt the Eaton TVS based system will add power and the pictured exhaust upgrades are stated as required by Kleemann to realize the full power.

      No USA pricing announced yet or if the specifications transfer over to 91 octane pump gas. Hopefully more details will come but until then enjoy the pictures, dynograph, and video below.

        @Sticky, notice they dont use longtube headers in conjuction with thier SC system. They ran into some problems. Maybe the same issues with Weistec.

        This car is surly making good power, but it is no match for an SLS equipped with a twin screw 3.0L from Weistec!

        The 3.0 liter is simply much bigger than anything Kleemann offers so there is no doubt about that.

        The header issues are from 02 placement if I understand correctly.

        HOLY 5HIT. Did any of you guys notice that it went from 0-200 in less than 9 seconds.?? Take into account that it shifted both 1st and 2nd gears early. DAMN that was fast!

        It's a very fast car no doubt about it. Pulls smoothly too.

        @Maverick1975 , since you have equipped the Kleeman Kompressor and a couple of Weistec superchargers, I am pretty confident you tested them against eachother. I'm now having a strong feeling that the Kleeman Kompressor makes more power and is more reliable than the 2.3L that Weistec are offering. Can you please verify?

        The Weistec 2.3 system is CARB compliant so it is not made for peak power.

        The Kleeman system is NOT CARB compliant so to compare the two is like comparing apples to grapefruit not to mention the Kleeman system is $3,000 more expensive.

        Curious why you have this strong feeling...based upon what?

        Just a feeling!


        lets hear it from Maverick


        second, Weistec's stage 2 with the 2.3l setup and exhaust modification ISN'T CARB Compliant. Check out the Website

        He's referring to the CARB compliant system obviously. Kleemann does not have a CARB compliant system at this time.

        I'd also like to know what makes you think the Kleeman unit is more reliable than the Weistec 2.3L ??? There have not been any reported failures from the Weistec units so what makes you so certain ?

        There have not been any failing units with Kleeman as well.

        Although I do know that Weistec had some belt issues which I have seen causing issues with some of my friends here in the Middle-East.

        People who don't live where you do?

        Additionally, people who would like to see the scope of the kit offering by tuners? Can other tuners offer CARB kits? Why don't they?

        Because they are intrested in making more power than being tree hugers

        Belt issues and supercharger failures/reliability are hardly the same thing.

        So... isn't that what the 3.0 liter is for?

        If that is the case compare Weistec's most powerful system to kleemans...case closed!
