• Powerhaus Performance built custom twin turbo C219 CLS55 AMG with Eurocharged tuned M113 V8 goes 10.9 @ 128 in the 1/4 mile

      Good to finally see some dragstrip results from turbocharged M113 5.5 liter V8 motors. The C219 CLS55 AMG originally comes from with a supercharged 5.5 liter V8 (M113K) from the factory. Powerhaus Performance ditched the factory 2.1 liter blower that is quickly pushed out of its efficiency range for a pair of turbochargers. They then sought out Eurocharged Performance to tune the turbo setup due to their proficiency with the M113K V8 engine as well as their experience tuning turbos on the motors.


      The end result is a 4300 pound CLS55 that runs 10's on 93 octane pump gas as the 10.9 @ 127.9 slip shows. Definitely impressive for pump fuel but people will now compare these results to what M113K's have shown with larger blowers namely the recent run of 10.3 @ 134 run for a supercharged car. It is important to note that was done in a much lighter CLK body so not exactly apples to apples and that this is a stock internal motor M113 V8.

      BenzBoost looks forward to seeing what this CLS can do on race gas with the boost turned up on the twin GTX 3076's if they intend to push it. For now, this is a great start for turbocharged M113 V8 performance especially considering the stock internals and 93 octane fuel.

        Good results. I want to see race gas. I would also like to see what a built motor with twin could do.

        This is a nice start.

        I really want to put one of these in a 2500 lb Exige S, so choice

        The Exige S already has a supercharged V6 option so more than enough grunt for that little car. A V8 just would make it way too heavy and would be an absurdly tight fit if it fit but I get your point.

        I might not be reading the graph correctly, but is that an AFR of 8 at full throttle?. Isnt that too rich?

        The values on the left side are for boost if you follow the row up you'll see.

        Very cool. Looks nice and clean as well. Any concerns with the turbos mounted so low? Can't wait to see what it can do with more boost/race gas.

        Thanks. The turbos are not the lowest point of the car so no worries really.
