    • Velos Designwerks 2012 E550 (M278 twin turbo) software dyno tune results - 425 wheel horsepower

      Velos Designwerks just posted M278 software tune dyno results for a W212 Mercedes E550. Baseline for the car was 379 wheel horsepower and 418 pound-feet of wheel torque on a dynojet in STD correction. Once tuned, the wheel horsepower number rose to 425 for a gain of 46 wheel horsepower and the torque number rose to 483 pound-feet of wheel torque for a gain of 65 wheel torque.

      Very impressive results with the gains coming on at about 2600 RPM and keep in mind this was done in 100 degree Florida Summer heat. Dynograph and video are below.

        One question

        The video shows a transmission display with all 7 gears displayed and what looks like a true manual mode. How do you enable this?

        edited because I realized it was a coupe.

        You would have to ask someone at Velos.

        I finally did. They said it was some kind of dyno mode. I wonder if any members use it in daily driving.
