    • World Motorsports creating a twin turbo kit for Mercedes 63 AMG Motors (M156/M159) - Prototype SLS AMG Twin Turbo Kit

      This is a rather interesting development in the Mercedes-Benz AMG performance scene. Truth is, World Motorsports is a newer name and one not seen on BenzBoost before. A Mercedes SLS AMG Twin Turbo kit certainly is quite a way to make an entrance. They already seem to have the turbos mounted but hardware is only one part of puzzle. What about the tuning? What about the impact of the torque on the SLS dual clutch transmission? These are just some of the problems posed.

      World Motorsports is located in Torrance, California and Benzboost was invited out to see what they are up to. A very generous offer as most companies won't allow anyone to visit when they are preparing for a show (SEMA) and wrapping up very difficult work. Apparently they are going to try to make it to SEMA in Las Vegas which is less than three weeks away. Not a long window but it would be impressive if they were to make it.

      Plumbing is said to be 80% complete at this point and the car should be hitting the dyno soon. BenzBoost will hopefully be able to provide more info shortly after stopping by the shop. For now, enjoy the development pictures below.

        Dont know about any jaws dropping. They are having tuning issues from what I hear and are asking some reputable tuners to help them out.....did you know of this?

        Interesting, where did you hear this?

        I was wondering who would tune this.

        I really dont want to post names and companies, but since you are going to be there at SEMA, i am pretty certain if you ask them, you will find out. They have already contacted a reputable tuner from what I hear.

        So hardware built before the tuning solution was even implemented?

        So these aren't really "done" or running...

        If looking for a tuner at this point this is still a ways from being completed or viable. Not saying it won't be by any means.

        Saw the SLS at the show today but there wasn't any info on the turbo setup and the hood was closed. Don't really understand it.

        You guys are really crazy. The car is on display in the Continental Tire booth, they sponsor all of the cars that we build and our race team. The car is part of there display, would you want the hood open? Do any of the cars in their booth have the hood open? They are a tire company, the reason that they are using our car is to display their TIRES.

        We have our own booth in the North Hall of SEMA which is the hall where all the performance parts are displayed. I have been at that booth for the last two days, I haven't seen or talked to anyone from this forum. If you guys are interested in performance parts for your cars I would assume that this is where you would be, if you are interested in 32" wheels and that is the thing that interests you I guess the South Hall is the place for you to spend your SEMA show.

        As for our tuning. All of our partners on our car are CLEARLY displayed at the car in the Continental Booth and their is no hiding what we use in our SLS for tuning. We never had any issues with tuning or building our cars but you guys can all start stirring any rumors up that you like, this forum is especially good for that.

        Sticky had an open invitation to come by our shop any day that he wanted between 9-5 Monday through Friday when he doubted our ability to build this car in his first ever posting about us. Did he ever show up, NO. Maybe it would have been good for him to take a shop tour and see what it is we do but I guess it didn't matter to him. Everyone on this forum would rather just start rumors and come up with their own answers rather than easily find out the real deal.

        I was expecting to finally meet Sticky on the first day at SEMA but maybe he just can't seen to find a booth that is selling performance parts for Mercedes Benz's because I have been in that booth for 2 days now. I mean, why would anyone on a forum named Benzboost.com be interested in a company that has aftermarket Benz parts on display? Maybe its very difficult to actually locate a booth at SEMA, you may actually have to open a SEMA map if you can't figure out how to use the numbers on the floor.

        I can assure you that every other manufacturer of Benz parts has been able to find us and has stopped by and said hello.

        As for our tuning and ECU work, I somehow don't think you guys have a clue about what it is we do. We are trying to get our website working but I have made it live for you guys to see. Our about page is up and we have a video on the page that shows some of the non proprietary things that we do. Why don't you go to it and watch it so you have a small idea about us at least. I am sure you all probably don't need to though because everyone here seems to know us so well.

        Why don't you stop by our booth before the end of the show and introduce yourselves rather than sticking with this same boring rhetoric that this forum is famous for. Do I need to pay you to come see us because I refuse to do that, you have had an open invitation and I still haven't met you. Our website is at
