• Eurocharged Canada gets a monster 740 lb-ft out of a Mercedes-AMG W166 GLE63S SUV

      This beast of an SUV belongs to BenzBoost member @meeru. He sent it to Eurocharged Canada for a tune and the result reminds us why so many love the M157 5.5 liter V8. It is a shame it is being replaced in the 5300+ pound Mercedes SUV's as the torque curve perfectly complements the big German tanks.

      740 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels at roughly 3700 rpm:

      The truck is not lacking for torque down low. You have a spread of over 700 lb-ft for almost 2500 rpm.

      Peak horsepower comes at 5000 rpm with 631 to the wheels.

      The turbos do run a bit out of breath up top and that is why the M177/M178 are replacing this motor.

      Not much will replace the feeling of that avalanche of torque right off the line though that few motors other than the M157 can provide.

        It's nice to see that M157 deliver the low end grunt. I wish turbos weren't so difficult to swap on this platform!
