    • Picking up 65+ awhp on a W213 E63 AMG S Wagon by adding an AMS carbon fiber Alpha M157 V8 intake system?

      This is not the first time AMS made big power gain claims on a Mercedes twin turbo V8 with their intake system. The difference here though is that AMS backed up their claims with a dyno graph but the gains are so big they are still hard to believe.


      A +65 horsepower gain to all four wheel after adding the M157 V8 Alpha carbon fiber intake:


      That is absolutely massive. To be fair that gain comes on a car tuned on MS109 so obviously aggressively tuned on the stock turbochargers and the factory intake becomes a choke point.

      The gains on 93 octane pump gas are still huge:


      42 horsepower picked up at all four wheels but the graph is quite different. On MS109 the higher rpm's are the choke point whereas here on pump gas you see an increase from 2500-5000 rpm.

      It is hard to explain why the areas of increase are so different on 93 octane and race gas.

      BenzBoost would like to see an independent result confirming these gains for the intake system as if accurate this is clearly a must have M157 modification.

        This is for the M157, not the M177.
