Tune Only 2012 RENNtech E63 runs 11.15 @ 126.7 mph!

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

An otherwise bone stock, tune only 2012 Mercedes E 63 ran an incredible 11.15 @ 126.7 mph quarter mile this past weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway. The E63 dynoyed an impressive 578.33 horsepower and 621.93 ft/lbs of torque at the wheels (680 horsepower and 732 ft-lbs of torque at the crank) with the RENNtech tune installed. That is a 100 horsepower gain over stock!

The run was made with the stock exhaust, stock wheels and OEM street tires in 80 degree temps with damp track conditions. Needless to say, we expect quite a bit more out of the new biturbo E63 and will certainly be breaking into the 10′s very shortly.

Stay tuned as we continue to push the performance of Mercedes latest powerhouse.

Here is a video of the run:

 

RENNtech Porsche 997.2 TT Muffler Bypass Exhaust Now Available

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Our proprietary muffler bypass exhaust system is the answer to the  inherently quiet factory and aftermarket exhaust systems currently on the market for the 997.2 3.8L Turbo /Turbo S. The variable turbocharger itself acts like a muffler and when coupled with even a cat bypass sport muffler, is still fairly reserved and quiet.

Our muffler bypass exhaust removes the bulky factory exhaust system (saving nearly 40 lbs of weight behind the rear axle) and utilizes 200 cell HJS tri-metal sport catalytics with center muffler bypass pipes. The result is a dramatic reduction in rear vehicle weight which produces and intoxicating sound both at idle and wide open throttle, with no drone or resonance in the cabin, even at highway cruising speeds in top gear.

Our system is complemented by the added performance of a RENNtech ECU tune and reuses the factory tips or any other aftermarket tip designed to work with the OEM system.

Gains:

  • Our 997.2 Turbo test vehicle gained an additional 19 Hp and 15 lb/ft of torque over the previous aftermarket cat bypass/sport muffler combination that was installed on this vehicle.

Price: $2,860

NEW AGE TEUTONIC TERRORS

Thursday, July 17th, 2008




This morning, Mercedes-Benz announced that all of its car lines would feature smaller 4 cylinder and turbocharged engines by 2010.

For the record, MB already offers twin-turbo V12′s in their flagship 600 and 65 series AMG cars, as well as turbo-engined diesels (320CDi, etc.), but some people have already emailed us about this, worried that this announcement spelled doom for hot cars like the C63 AMG. To all the “sky is falling” chicken-littles out there who think smaller engines mean boring cars: just look at the picture above, and remember that Herr Feyhl cut his teeth on hot fours.
