Renntech tuned SLS Black Series M159 V8 with Renntech headers hits 562 wheel horsepower
Nice results here from a Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series whose 6.2 liter M159 V8 received Renntech headers and a custom dyno tune. The result? On a Dynojet in STD correction a peak of 562 wheel horsepower was hit. This is 37 wheel horsepower over the baseline of 525 wheel horsepower. In SAE correction on the Dynojet the peak figures change to 547 wheel horsepower for a gain of 34 wheel horsepower over the 513 wheel horsepower baseline.
Those are some very nice gains from a motor AMG pushes pretty far past the standard SLS AMG which itself features a more highly strung version of the M156 V8 seen in 63 AMG models known as the M159. Especially considering the Renntech headers still retain cats. 562 naturally aspirated horsepower is incredibly impressive in of itself as is squeezing more power out of the over 100 horsepower per liter M159 Black Series motor.
