    • Renntech builds a monster R3+ Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S M157 with 790 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels - 60-130 in 8.65

      This. Is. A. Beast. 790 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels? Yep. How about 698 horsepower at all four wheels as well? This monster of a Mercedes-AMG W166 GLE63 S belong to BenzBoost member @Bisli.


      He does not skimp on his modifications let's put it that way.

      Here is the mod list:

      - Custom Race ECU Upgrade
      - High-Performance Air Filters
      - 3rd Generation Diverter Valve
      - Stainless Steel Downpipes w/200 Cell Catalytic Converters
      - Fuel System Upgrade
      - Turbocharger Upgrade
      - Transmission Upgrade
      - Transmission Software Upgrade

      Renntech upgrades the fuel system, turbochargers, and then the transmission to cope with the torque.

      A ton of torque:

      841 HP | 952 TQ crank
      698whp | 790wtq


      Dyno power is one thing but what about the 1/4 mile and 60-130 performance? The 1/4 mile flashes by in 11.478 @ 125.3 miles per hour and the 60-130 sprint takes 8.655 seconds. Both times are measured with a GPS box. Not bad for a 5300+ pound German tank, eh?

      Fortunately this GLE63 S is in California and BenzBoost may just get to go check it out in person. Stay tuned! Oh, and check out the video below.

        Very interesting. This is the first time that I can recall seeing an upgraded turbo ML/GLE with Vbox results.

        For comparison, my ML63 with a Renntech tune, filters and spark plugs (supposedly allowed for a slightly more aggressive tune) did 60-130 in 11.0x in ideal conditions (negative DA) and could never manage a 0-60 under 4.0 (the torque management just kills the power on the launch with more than the slightest power brake or too much throttle).

        Best Vbox 1/4 was 12.04 @ 118 (again in negative DA). Best at strip was 12.0 (maybe 12.1) @ 116.

        I assume this is something they can address with the software?

        Correct, the biggest increase (or in this case the decrease of 0-60mph time) is received through an upgrade of the Transmission-Software.
        Most effective is this Upgrade on the S-Sedan, S-Coupe and the SUVs.
