    • Eurocharged is building a GT30R twin turbocharged W211 E55 AMG

      This is the type of project that makes BenzBoost smile. Now, you should know that the W211 E55 AMG has an M113K 5.5 liter kompressor V8 which means it is supercharged from the factory. It's a very quick car in stock form and of course can be modified for more power. The factory 2.1 liter blower gets maxed out and pushed out of its efficiency range fairly quickly so to make more power than what it is capable of it needs to be replaced with something else.

      That something else in this case is two Garret 3076R turbos capable of flowing a heck of a lot more air than the OEM blower. These turbos will suffer from less parasitic loss while offering far greater power capability. They will also produce a nice large torque hit which necessitates upgraded transmission components that Eurocharged is providing for the build.

      In addition to the turbos this build is using a new fuel rail with 700cc injectors, intercoolers, piping, etc.

      This is a work in progress but a dynograph and video showing the hardware working are included below. What power level will this hit? We will have to wait and see but there is a lot of potential here. It's nice to see something different and for this platform to continue to move forward.

        Amazing work. Looks like it was installed at the factory.

        Very tough.
        Definitely not driving through puddles with those intakes.

        Nice Work!

        Will be interesting to find a good balance of throttle response and high power output with such an turbo setup.

        Good luck.

        Thanks guys! The car has a custom made skid plate so rain won't be an issue.

        Some of the details we can share....

        700cc injectors, new rail etc

        Twin 3076Rs, just intercooler, piping.

        Eurocharged upgraded trans that we have put in all of our monster builds lately.

        Some of the other details we are keeping under our hat for now! We have already completed a tune file for her to start the tuning process.

        How do you get the oil from the turbos back to the crankcase? Is there some axillary pump that handles this?

        Holy $#@!, how did I miss this. This can be a nice 800whp monster at least with this setup.

        So....we finally got all the hardware figured out and tuning is underway! We still have a lot to do up top, but the low end is looking pretty good right now!

        We should have numbers from our other twin turbo tuning(s) soon as well (cls55, and another E55)
