    • Quickest and fastest M157 on stock turbochargers? - PP-Performance Stage II tuned C218 CLS63 AMG goes 10.6 @ 135

      Great results here from a PP-Performance (Jimmy Pelka) tuned Mercedes-Benz C218 CLS63 AMG. The car is on stock turbochargers (with catless downpipes) making the elapsed time and trap speed very impressive. A 10.678 @ 135.5 miles per hour (218.07 kph) is the quickest and fastest recorded timeslip for a stock turbo M157 twin turbo V8 Mercedes. This run took place at the Yas Marina dragsrip which is located in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

      Now, this car no doubt runs very strong but the issue with overseas timeslips is that the their timing equipment often differs from NHRA approved equipment in the United States. That said, Yas Marina is an NHRA certified dragstrip. BenzBoost is not able to explain why this trap speed is so much higher than other recorded runs in the United States but the Yas Marina strip seems to be using different timing equipment.

      The reason the trap speed is believed to be on the high side here is due to being put in context against the M157 trap speed record help by Renntech at 137 miles per hour with upgraded turbos. Obviously the stock turbos will not make as much power or torque as the upgraded units and there should be a much larger difference than two miles per hour. The only other explanation would be the car not running stock turbos.

      Regardless, this is a very quick and fast run and PP-Performance is clearly tuning these motors well. Congratulations to all involved.

        Joseph, dont listen to anything that comes out of that clown's mouth

        First of all the white CLS63 did not have an upgraded transmission. It had upgraded turbos indeed. My brother posted about it a while ago. However, for that run NO RACE FUEL was used and and no drag rubber. Having said that, That run was made with an early shift.

        The same White CLS63 is actually beating the car being discussed above.

        Sticky go the PP-Performance facebook page, you will see many videos of CLs63's trapping 219-218 km/hr speeds


        I dont know who this @M177 character is, but if your the owner of the white CLS63 with an OE tune, you are the laughing stock of the whole UAEClick here to enlarge. congratulations on the title, why is it that your car is only elapsing 11.5 @ yas...lol?

        have fun trolling. Id love to compare your car with the one above if you are willing.

        Funny thing is that I was speaking to Salah and he doesnt know you!

        @Sticky btw, here is a video of the run in a positive DA I should add


        Oh and here is another article you might want to add. I present to you the Fastest and quickest Mercedes SL run in the world. Made on the same day. This car has got an ECU TUNE only and is on STOCK STREET TIRES AND WHEELS as seen in the video


        Again, I dont know who this M177 is for sure .I asked him more than twice now. Although I am pretty sure he has been smoked by the PPP team

        Look there is no reason to insult or put anyone down. We are just having a discussion here. You often do this and I ask that you refrain from being negative or insulting to people.

        I understand the white car was not at full strength but it is interesting to note it trapped 132 versus 135 for what is said to be a stock turbo car.

        I will take a look at the PP-P page. I'm sure I'll have a talk with Pelka at some point in the near future too and he will be able to shed some light.

        We're all on the same team here.

        This is a good post on SL but considering it is lighter than the CLS it makes complete sense. It should be faster tune only. I don't understand why that one car is doing 135 and exceeding all the others.

        Time to talk to the man himself. You will get all the info from Jimmy himself. PP-Performance cars are fast man.

        Nobody is saying they aren't fast what is being questioned in the context against turbo upgraded M157's and other times.

        Part of the problem with comparing things across the world is different standards of measurement, equipment, etc.

        On the PP-Facebook page the white SL63 has upgraded Turbos, 780 HP (Crank) or is the white SL63 in the video another car?

        I don't get it, how the non turbo upgrade car can be faster... One have to take a closer look on that car...

        First of all, the run isnt on dragtimes, but you are right, it did in fact have upgraded turbos. I just talked to PPP. So there ya go. The SL63 had upgraded turbos. The run was made on PUMP gas + Street tires/Wheels. I got the info from PPP themselves.

        The CLS ran quicker because it was on C16 mixed race fuel with much lighter wheels and drag rubber.

        Oh glad that is clarified but that is two cars on upgraded turbos now on the same drag strip in the same area running slower than a stock stock turbo car?

        I can't be the only one wondering WTF is going on.
