    • Weistec Stage II supercharged 2008 W204 C63 AMG drag strip results and comparison to naturally aspirated results

      This W204 C63 AMG belongs to BenzBoost member charliekay. He took his car to the same drag strip when tuned both when naturally aspirated and when supercharged. Previously, he ran 11.8 @ 119 when naturally aspirated with an OE Tuning tune. With the addition of the Weistec Stage II 2.3 liter twin screw supercharger his elapsed time improved to 11.1 and his trap speed increased by eight miles per hour to 127.33.

      That is a solid difference right there especially considering the forced induction run was in warmer weather. @charliekay's full impressions below:


      Hello all,

      Last night I finally got around to running the car, after a couple of busy months.

      Very impressed with the times, and gain overs the N/A setup.

      The car has the following:

      - 2008 C63 with Original Tranny
      - Weistec Stage II Supercharger w/ Oil/Air Seperator
      - OEM multispoke 19s on front, w/ OEM Conti tyres
      - OEM 5-spoke 18s on rear, w/ MT ET Streets 265/40
      - Full interior with no weight reduction
      - Pump Fuel - 98RON (equivalent to 93R+M/2) - I only ever use BP Ultimate 98
      - iPE Full Valvetronic Exhaust

      N/A the fastest the car ran was 11.803, this was with the iPE Exhaust and OE Tuning Stage II tune. Unfortunately I cannot find the timeslip for the 11.80 run, but I have one for an 11.83 run I did, which was 1.849 60ft, and trap speed was 119mph

      For comparison reasons, I used the same car, same wheels (including rubber), same fuel, same track (Sydney Dragway), same exhaust, all with full weight.

      Obviously it was a different day so different temp, looking at the different time slips, looks like there was a 10 degree Celsius temperature difference between the runs, last night being hotter. Not sure how much time this equates to, but just trying to be 100% clear with the results.

      So last night after the Stage II was put on, I ran 11,205, 11.181, 11.184, 11.184 again and the last run was the fastest being 11.162.

      This mean the Weistec charger took a minimum of 6.5/10ths off the N/A time. The reason I say minimum is traction is a problem with that much power, you can feel the car hesitates and jumps a little when it hits second. I think some 16s or 17s with better rubber would be worth 1-2/10ths just in solving the jump into second, not to mention the gains in weight reduction and 60ft gains.

      Anyways here is the time slip.

        Everything is in reserve on this side of the world. Our cars are RHD, drive on the left side of the road, toilets flush in reverse.....even our clocks tick anti-clockwise here. Click here to enlarge

        That's a 10 second run in better weather and a better 60'.

        Congrats.

        Thanks @ecampell, everything worked out great and the car has been amazing.

        That is what I am hoping for PetroC63. I will go back out there in a couple of months when the temp. has dropped, and hopefully have some 16s by then, and shoot for a 10.8 or so with some weight reduction and possibly some MS109.

        No plans yet. As much as the power might be addictive, it is a big job getting the tranny to Weistec from Australia for upgrading.

        Sure is, their products are excellent, and you can really tell how much R&D has gone into their products. They hold up great to a hell of a beating!

        hi bro,

        This car belongs to Faris Alkuwaiti. He is a customer of Salah and PP-Performance. The car however is a full weistec car. It doesnt have any PP-Performance hardware or software. He took the car to the dyno there as well. Its a nice car
