    • GAD Motors releases 1200+ hp capable AMG M177/M178 68/84 RS turbo upgrade - C190 AMG GT R runs 100-200 in 3.94, 60-130 in 4.56

      GAD Motors has a new turbo upgrade for the Mercedes-AMG M177 and M178 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 platforms. They are calling it the 68/84 RS and it is capable of over 1200 horsepower according to GAD Motors.


      BenzBoost member @Gad6363 has this turbo upgrade on his C190 Mercedes-AMG GT R. He is not running the full 1200+ horsepower capability but believes he is somewhere in the ~1000 horse range.

      We will not know until we get a dyno but is 100-200 kph sprint is under 4.0 seconds at 3.94:


      The 60-130 is 4.56 seconds:


      This makes for the quickest 100-200 kph and 60-130 mph C190 AMG GT R or any C190 AMG GT V8, period.

      Hopefully we get more details from GAD but they are usually tight lipped and tend to do custom builds for each car.

      Dyno numbers at least would be great to see.

        They're good but their forum presence, communication, and marketing could use work...

        Any clue on how much these might cost / how to buy them?

        I think @Gad6363 is probably your best bet for info. I keep trying to get a GAD presence on the forum but for whatever reason they don't seem interested in promotion/marketing or a direct line to the US customer.

        You can buy them by emailing them you can get full details on what they cost and they will ship from Germany to US to my knowledge but they don’t have anyone representing them in the US or support them so best is to write them an email info@gad-Motors.de

        I would keep in my mind - that in my opinion these Turbos can be used to full extend only with all the supporting mods (big package) from GAD-Motors.

        So if one is interested in the performance which is shown, I would think about sending my whole car to Germany to let GAD-Motors make the whole built.

        That's only an options for guys with multiple cars and big bank accounts.

        Very helpful but I wonder why doesn't GAD have a US presence or even anyone to answer questions for US customers?

        I think they are working on it and maybe someone will represent them in the US
