    • PPMRacing offering forged M133 crankshaft, pistons, and rods for the A45, CLA45, and GLA45 AMG

      PPM (Pure Performance Racing Australia) is known for their stroker kits for various motors. They certainly have some impressive pieces and stroker kits although their M133 forged billet crank maintains the OEM stroke.


      Will they do a stroker crank? Only they know and it certainly would be interesting to see how much more displacement they could extract out of the M133 especially with their overbore pistons:

      They do not list any pricing information for the crank but the forged pistons and rods run $3200:

        They have some interesting products. Have you seen their 3.7L S55 stroker?

        I still don’t trust them though.

        They have a lot of interesting stuff.

        Ferrari F430 and 458 stroker kits. The various BMW kits.

        So why aren't more people running this stuff and why are there horror stories?

        You would figure some Ferrari purist would want to max out his 458 motor in NA form.

        I don’t want to be a hater but +$60,000 for a glorified S85 is too damn much.

        I just want to see some actual results for all these motors they claim they have.

        Which one?

        Why bother with a hybrid on a built motor though when there are real turbo upgrades available?

        Because not all real turbos are that good as some hybrids. There is no name for it, just some undercover projects.

        Been build by the same company who build for Brabus,9FF and so on

        I agree not all turbos are created equal but I doubt there is a hybrid topping the Garrett options now available...
