    • RK Autowerks has C218 CLS63 AMG M157 5.5 liter V8 air intakes good for 30+ hp

      RK Autowerks developed air intakes for the AMG M157 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 under the hood of the C218 CLS63 AMG. Presumably, these can be adapted to the W212 E63 AMG which share the same M157 5.5 liter V8 as well.


      The intake is a point of a restriction on the M157/M278 engine design with tuners showing some large gains. RK Autowerks claims an increase of ~22 whp but no dyno is provided.

      Even so with intakes you need real world air flow to really show what they can do and dyno fans are often inadequate in that respect.

      If you are looking to maximize the efficiency of your AMG bi-turbo V8, definitely look into a good intake setup.

      Part number: RKCLS63AMGi
      Performance Gains: 22WHP/12WTQ SAE
      Installation time : 5-6 hours
