    Renntech sets new World's Fastest M157 record running 10.7@130 in their 2012 CLS63 AMG

    Renntech continues to keep raising the bar with the AMG M157 twin turbo V8. The first run in the 10's on this platform was a 10.9@129 earlier in January of this year. After that they were the first to break 130 miles per hour through the traps on the platform running 10.9@131 in March. This run sets a new quickest record at 10.79 although the trap speed record is still 131. In better conditions (this took place at PBIR in 85-90 degree weather 2000+ Density Altitude) we expect the trap record to fall fairly easily.

    Modifications to the CLS are Renntech software, larger heat exchanger, upgraded intercooler pump, limited slip diff, downpipes, high flow cats, and drag radials. The car does not have any weight reduction and is still on the stock turbos as well as airbox which are the next changes coming.

    Very impressive work as usual from Renntech.

    M157s are nasty... they should have put this into the new c63s. How do the e63s run with this motor?

    The C will likely get a twin turbo V8 in the next generation. If they do, it will be a ballistic missile.

    More like a hellfire but yeah, it will be sick. They will do it...only a matter of time. But I'm sure being an entry level model it will be majorly detuned and perhaps even a smaller motor but with turbos. But we've seen how easily any of these new FI motors can be tweaked. What impresses me more than these motors are the transmissions behind them.

    I agree, it may be the smaller TT v8 but it's coming one way or another.

    I'm just going by the numbers. I have seen and experienced supercharged M156's. The custom Stage 2+ setup Jim and Earl had would walk this but those are not reflective of standard Stage I + II's. I do not see how it is not close based on what I have seen.

    Of course Sirex agrees with you Click here to enlarge but who gives a $#@! ? See this is your problem....you are basing the things you say on NOTHING. Not firsthand experience, not what you have done, nothing. You just say what you THINK as if it's fact. Why is that so hard for you to understand ??? Sticky just said based on the numbers ON PAPER it would be a VERY close race. Do you have some other data that would support otherwise ???? And cars with this type of power are not as easy as just mashing the gas and winning a heads up race. Clearly as we have seen, your buddy Sirex can't even get into the 10's with his Stage 1. So what makes you think he, or you for that matter, could beat the car in question ??

    Do you know what is the diffrence between stage1+ and stage 2?

    Its not much!

    What jim and Earl were runnig when they had Stage2 is not much diffrent then what I have. Thier Stage 2 consists of othe fuel system upgrade.

    They can also confirm this. The diffrence between them and I is that they had the fuel system upgrade. This consists of larger fuel injectors.
    The reason they were making 660RWHP was that they both had the race ported heads and a custom race tune (which can be purchased with stage1)
    There is another C63 that ACG worked on (featured in SEMA), that dynoed 630 RWHP. This also had the race ported heads and te fuel system upgrade and tuned on CA 91 pump gas.





    Sticky, I ran an M157 CLS63 runing a tune and downpipes. It wasnt close!Click here to enlarge

    Sirex63 ran the E63 that raced the tuned BMW M5 (Video Posted) and was also ahead of it!

    I was there at that event and at mid day temps on the track got to 92 - 95 . I can imagine what that car will do in 60 with new turbo upgrades
