    Very Interesting : M157 with dual Top-Mount Intercoolers

    This is a GL63 tuned by mansory. The car in itself has little interest for me , that's one more crazy project for the Russian/Middle east market, like always no Dyno or technical details to prove the claimed 950 Crank HP/

    BUT This picture shows something very interesting IMO

    A Top mount intercooler setup...

    Like the M113K, the M157 has an intercooler core located between the cylinder banks.

    I was thinking about such a mod the first day I saw a Cutaway view of the M157. It has been done on the M113K, no tuner ever sold a real Top mount kit, only some underground attempts by Renntech or kleemann.

    Only AMG did it properly on the SLR Engine. And this setup proved to be a HUGE improvement for the intercooling system.


    With always more boost from different tuner, Cooling the M157 IAT will become more and more important.

    Weistec already offers a nice split intercooling upgrade.

    At least It's intersting to know that a Top mount cores setup has been done once.

    According to the picture the setup seems to be properly done.

    How much does it Lower IAT ?

    Is it really cost effective ?

    I don't Know.

    Well damn...if this can be figured out by someone at Weistec or AMS, that would be awesome. These things should be good for 1000 crank hp then if you add some downpipes and full exhaust, plus accentuate the tune to account for all this.

    Very good post.

    No more pictures?

    I don't think any of the US tuners are going to have any trouble coming up with intercooler upgrades.

    M113k top mounts showed that only deep pockets could make the jump to the "SLR Style" intercoolers. Evo-sport was on their way to making it made for a decent cost but they ended up going out of business before release and only a handful were actually released.

    Hopefully by the time I get into a Biturbo, these are well on their way to the public.

    All kinds of people are going to offer intercooler upgrades for these motors. This top mount setup may not even end up being the best option. We'll have to see.

    I haven't more pictures Unfortunally...

    Yes we have to see. As for now a Weistec Intercooling upgrade seems to be a nice upgrade.
