    • When you lie about nitrous for internet bragging - W205 C63 AMG hits '828' whp on 93 octane

      You can blame social media partly on this as any good forum would call this BS claim instantly. Saying you are making 828 wheel horsepower on pump gas on a stock internal W205 Mercedes-AMG M177 V8 is a very bold claim.


      To be fair, it's supported by a graph. What isn't fair is the part about a big shot of nitrous of helping:


      It is surprising Doug Sawyer or @DSawyer63 left the graph up as you can clearly see the sudden big bump on the graph itself. Various Mercedes-AMG tuners who have passed this on to BenzBoost clearly attribute the spike to nitrous.

      This would not be the first person to lie about nitrous for internet bragging rights. There are various records that were nitrous assisted where the tuner or vehicle owner flat out lied. Nobody was dumb enough to post the graph showing where their juice hit though.

      Is 828 whp from a stock internal M177 V8 with PTG turbos impressive? Yes. Is it being done with the turbos by themselves on pump gas? No.

      If you ainít first, youíre last. 828 whp stock M177, stock trans, 93 octane. Fuck with me.
      It seems someone needs a bit of a reality check...

        i feel like I'm becoming the old guy in the tuning scene but bragging about an absurd amount of power like that on a stock motor is just plain dumb to me, because of turbos we can easily over power what a stock motor can survive. This car will have bent rods or worse very soon, thats not impressive to me...

        Funny to see him denying it but not having the balls to here.

        There are three hits on the graph at the same rpm. That isn't traction...
