    • C218 CLS63 AMG reaches 976 horsepower with Turbo-Technik-Hamburg 1000 M157 turbo upgrade

      Turbo-Technik-Hamburg is obviously a German turbo producer but we have not seen too many results with their products. Well, their AMG 5.5 liter M157 turbo upgrade certainly seems to be stout based on these MAHA dyno results.


      The car was tuned by Jimmy Pelka of PP-Performance and they hit 976 crank horsepower:


      Wheel output is 725 but keep in mind the MAHA dyno wheel reading is quite conservative.

      With 976 horsepower and 851 lb-ft of torque at the crank this CLS63 no doubt moves.

      The question really with turbo upgraded M157 AMG's is how you get the transmission to cope with the torque.

        How much torque can the stock tranny handle?

        How much power and torque will the TCU allow to get to the wheels out on the street or strip?
        I'm curious to know the list of upgrades.
