• Renntech tune only 2014 W212 E63 AMG 4Matic 1/4 mile run

      It's nice to see the facelifted W212 E63 AMG already modified and on the drag strip. Renntech tuned this E63 AMG 4Matic which is the standard non-S version. If one intends to tune keeping the change versus the S model makes a lot more sense especially considering the performance with just an ECU tune. So what did it run? 11.18 at 126.4 miles per hour. The launch was hardly dramatic as the car just hooked up and went.


      Renntech was able to run an 11.09@129 tune only in the pre-facelift rear wheel drive model. What does this mean? Well, the 4Matic is adding some weight and sucking some trap speed. However, it does not need drag rubber to repeat this performance. So the 4Matic essentially is making hooking up easier and more consistent at the expense of some trap speed.

      Enjoy the video below.

        4.0 liter twin turbo V8 is tiny now? Heh. Tell the Audi S8.
        LOL dont burst his bubble ! They may be going 8.7 Liter Twin GTX35's on the next c63

        Maybe with a spare V12 in the trunk too.

        Here's what getting developed by new partner RENNtech Germany Gmbh for the 1st time in AMG45 small motors with a tuning box (I still prefer the 5.5tt > 4.0tt > 3.0tt > 2.0t)

        Dear Renntech team, i am waiting for your German Rep. office to give me their sign-off (calling Lukas every week) that i can bring my E63 AMG S 4matik to Germany for installation of your 833-850hp package since i want to destroy Brabus E63 - 850 and MKB SL65BS - 1000 at the spring Moscow Unlim500+.

        Check the BenzBoost front page article on this. Yes, crank.

        Some people either don't understand the fundamentals of combustion engines, or are simple trolls.

        Bigger isn't always better. You don't even have the specs of the M177 yet.

        No.
        You're absolutely incorrect.
        All things being equally tuned, bigger is ALWAYS better when it comes to displacement.

        Not always. You generally want more displacement but I'd rather have a high revving 4.0 liter that breathes better up top than a low revving 5.5 liter stump puller.

        That makes no sense.
        You can make a 5.5 liter that screams in the high RPMs as well.
        Especially with multi valves, variable valve timing, and forced induction.

        Sure, forced induction is a displacement multiplier and FI motors are less dependent upon displacement than NA motors.
        But, even with forced induction, displacement has multiple benefits, ESPECIALLY on the street. (octane limits, torque, linear power deliver, etc)
        Anyone who builds cars, or has owned fast cars, knows this.

        Sure. You can. But in this instance chances are the 4.0 liter will be higher revving and with top mounted may actually be the better tuning option. Why don't you wait and see?

        Yep, forced induction helps and combine that with a good breathing top end and I don't fear your 5.5 liter. As a matter of fact, I fear no M157 with my lowly 4.0 liter. How about that?

        I appreciate the info on this site, because I intend to buy the new C63 or E63.
        But, sorry, pal. Regardless of whether you own this URL or not, posts like these illustrate how little you know about forced induction and engines.

        Oh, please, do tell why exactly I know so little?

        YOU may be impressed with the S8, I am NOT.

        That 4.0L TT will get SMOKED by a M157 Eclass, especially when both are modded. That's the benefit of larger displacement.
        But, that concept is apparently over your head.

        Why not? It's a 10 second car tune only. WTF is there not to like?

        How? They are putting up similar numbers and the S8 is actually getting better results this early on despite being heavier. So... how is it getting smoked?

        Why doesn't reality agree with you?

        Yes, displacement rules blah blah blah. But the S8 is running 10's and 130 traps with just a tune. So what is it giving up exactly? It's heavier yet doing similar tune only figures. Apparently that went over your head.

        Let's see these 130mph trap speeds from a S8 with "just a tune".

        Not that it matters, because no matter what you do to that 4.0L, you can do the same to the 5.5L and the 5.5L will ALWAYS make more power when equally tuned.

        So tune only they did 10's and then I guess with their downpipes they did over 130 and mid 10's: http://www.audiboost.com/content.php?3974-Audi-S8-already-in-the-10-s-tune-only-1-4-mile-comparison-video-between-stock-APR-Stage-I-93-octane-tune-and-APR-100-octane-race-gas-tune

        So, what exactly is this motor giving up?

        Oh, and they are stating the RS7 is making more power than the S8. So the RS7 should be even stronger.

        APR made 610 to the wheels tune only lol. What does an M157 make tune only again?

        Seems to me you're freaking out over 1.5 liters pointlessly.
