    • The W211 E55 AMG breaks into the 9's on the factory M113K V8 blower - Eurocharged tuned E55 runs 9.77@140.59 1/4 mile

      It feels like a decade since we talked about the W211 generation E55 AMG. This model is responsible for accelerating the horsepower war as a 5.4 liter supercharged V8 completely changed the power landscape as well as Mercedes tuning. AMG vs. M really escalated after the introduction of this model.


      Literally for over a decade owners have been trying to squeeze every last ounce out of the factory blower. Well, the impossible finally happened with a factory blower example running a 9-second pass without nitrous or methanol:


      How is this possible? Well, Eurocharged tuning for one. When it comes to the M113K motor Eurocharged is arguably the best tuner for the platform. They certainly have their fair share of E55's under their belt and any other 55 AMG you can name.

      Oh, it's a stock motor with 163k miles on it too:

      So it's: longtubes, 90mm TB, stock (unported) blower, 750cc injectors, stock bottom end, bone stock heads, it's got ARP head studs. 163k miles on original motor. Car runs on pump E85. 1" IC lines to everything, and a custom intercooler. Stuart EMP pump. It's a full interior, registered, insured street car in TX
      Ethanol is clearly helping and really nobody was doing E85 tuning in the early days for this platform. Today, ethanol tuning is everywhere.

      Where will they go from here?

      Did a full build out of the fuel system that should support 1200+ whp on E85, and more just by adding another pump. Lines/fpr/filters are all there to support well north of 1500
      We'll see but for now this is the W211 E55 AMG platform record and it's great to see it doing well again and setting numbers that make modern AMG's envious.

        Hopefully, one day soon for the W212 / M157.

        163k miles, not 163, for those wondering. Edited.

        That’s a crazy time for a stock blower e55. Well done to the owner

        Platform is an incredible value today too. That 5-speed can also take abuse.

        Less than $10K in parts and running 9s with a full interior. I'll take that deal anytime.

        That would not be very hard to do. There just needs to be a market to justify the expense of doing it the first time. The transmission should just bolt on the engine.
