    Weistec Engineering developing Mercedes McLaren SLR M155K V8 twin turbocharger package

    Big news here from Weistec Engineering who has managed to keep their Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR twin turbocharger development under wraps until now. The Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR as you know has an M155K supercharged 5.5 liter AMG V8 which is based on the M113K supercharged 5.5 liter V8 familiar to us from the W211 generation E55 AMG. Weistec decided to remove the supercharger on the SLR and add a pair of turbochargers in.

    The Weistec SLR Biturbo system is still under development so few details will be shared at this time. What we can tell you is it will be officially released later this year. Additionally, Weistec will have M155K V8 built motor options with forged internals for those that want big boost. The system will be sold as a package.

    As far as power figures expect some eye opening numbers when the time comes.

    The Weistec SLR McLaren Biturbo System is the pinnacle of SLR performance. Cast Inconel manifolds flank the 5.5L V8, supplying ball bearing turbochargers and external waste gates with high flowing exhaust gases. These gases are then routed via 304 stainless steel downpipes, paired with aerospace grade bellows, and connect to the mufflers. The biturbo’s forced air charge is tri-cooled via an additional intercooler and cooling circuit working in conjunction with the factory intercoolers, allowing for high performance and consistency in any climate.


    Official Release Fall 2014

    That it is. This is highly impressive.

    I'm wondering who gave their SLR for the development? That's awesome.

    There was an SLR that was shipped to them from the UAE. I think this might be it.

    This isn't a project to make big money. This to show who's boss.

    Sorry for "Oil-head" I didn't want to be derogatory. There is sometimes a little jealousy toward Middle East mega rich people that's why they are somtimes called like that but that's stupid I agree.
