    • Weistec high flow air filters now available for M157 and M278 Mercedes twin turbo V8 motors - $245

      Weistec has released their high flow air filters for the M157 and M278 Mercedes twin turbo V8 engines. For those familiar with modern German engines such as those from Mercedes the factory uses a restrictive filter namely out of emissions concerns. The stock filter is a point of restriction on these motors and the Weistec filters flow much more freely giving gains of 5-20 horses depending on the motor and modifications. Gains will be greater when combined with an ECU tune which of course requires more air.

      The filters are priced at $245.00 and ship out on June 1st, order yours today.

      Key Features:


      • Adds 5-20 Horsepower
      • Increased Flow Area
      • Optimized Airbox fitment over factory filter
      • Applifies the performance of your Weistec ECU Tune
      • Set of 2

        "Improvements in filter shape and positioning, combined with our very own high flow element provides a significant flow and power increase across all ranges of the engines power band."

        The most positive post you made so far.

        I agree!

        Hey LZ- No, just the filters. You've had nice results from the tune, no?

        No tune yet but Weistec has a great product. They are experts with FI, just look what they have done with their supercharger application and associated tuning. I'm sure their tuning for your TT motor is fantastic.

        I wouldn't expect massive gains but they will make a difference especially on a tuned car.
