    Weistec is bringing a 3.0 liter twin screw W211 E55 to Shift-Sector

    They just posted this. I think this is the @Weistec shop car but I'm not sure. Sounds awesome though!

    I wouldn't think so as the cars are in different performance classes.

    I would think this E55 is somewhere around 6XX whp. I'm not really entirely sure but it's a beast and I look forward to seeing how it does.

    Got it. I'm not terribly familiar with AMGs, but I was guessing an E55 with a 3L blower would be closer to 800WHP. Apparently that's not the case Click here to enlarge

    Well I mean there are a lot of different factors. Is it a built motor? Ported heads? Race gas? Etc.

    This should give you somewhat of an idea of a built motor E55 although the E55 will put out more as it's rear wheel drive: http://www.benzboost.com/content.php...n-epic-G-Wagon

    A little bit, 21 psi right now. I wanted them to push a bit more but we'll keep it there as we're just testing out the new transmission and who knows what might happen.

    I tend to get greedy. 27+ psi out of the gate probably isn't the smartest thing.

    I also don't like to lose.
