    • Eurocharged gets 643 whp out of the W211 E55 AMG M113K with flex fuel ethanol tuning and bolt ons

      The W211 Mercedes E55 AMG may be fourteen years old at this point but it still continues to impress. When Mercedes-AMG threw a 5.5 liter V8 (M113K) into an E-Class chassis and supercharged it, they sent a message. Look at how capable the M133K motor still is today.


      Eurocharged ATX (Austin, Texas) is getting very nice numbers out of the motor. Take a look at the modifications:

      Setup:
      2005 E55
      Stock Motor
      Stock Heads
      Stock Cams
      Stock Trans (at the moment)

      Fuel System:
      2x Walbro 450cc in the factory baskets
      Custom Fuel Lid for Passenger's side
      -10AN from tank, through external FPR and Filter
      Split factory rail with -6 inlet on each

      Mods - FBO
      American Racing Longtubes
      90mm TB
      178mm Crank
      77mm S/C Pulley
      650cc Injectors
      Eurocharged ATX Flex Fuel

      We are talking bolt on modifications with an upgraded fuel system for ethanol. Nothing crazy there yet the engine design which is well over a decade old is showing 643 horsepower to the tires.

      They plan on doing some further tuning with higher ethanol contents but suffice it to say the W211 E55 is an all time great.

        Thanks! Will prob eek out a little more power with higher ethanol content, but on almost e70, the benefits of ethanol are pretty much all there already.
