    • 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.

        Trust me I have no problem with it, just keeping it work safe outside of OT. Some people are insanely sensitive these days.

        One user got banned from browsing the site at school because of some girls in bikinis.

        First of all guys, I am not Andy. In addition, I know that it is Weistec that are doing the tuning for the SLS from the begining. (you can guess now how JRCART was in direct contact with them and got a ride in the project SLS)

        Look, I wil say this, and don't ask me how I got this info, Craig has not been posting here lately due to unfinished tuning issues. First of all, the twin turbo set up is excellent. Weistec are trying to figure out the correct and safe paramaters and correct boost that will work with the stock internals. This process takes time. @JRCART. Knows more about this than anybody in this thread :-)

        It pretty much had to be Weistec doing the tuning.

        So why no one puts a standalone in these cars and call it a day? I'm sure there is no engine out there that a Pectel SQ6 can't support.

        Likely because of retaining compatability for all the other functions. Same reason people don't just ditch the factory ECU in E92's.

        You got to pay to play, right? Plus, when people think of a standalone, the first thing comes to their mind is a Mega Squirt-like ECU. SQ6M is a beautiful thing with great features.

        Why E92 guys don't ditch their Bosch ECU? Because mostly their parents wouldn't be pleased because they are paying for the car.

        Ok well I'd prefer to have my stock ECU flashed and to retain my stock ECU. At most a standalone working in conjunction with my stock ECU.

        The reason people don't ditch their factory ECU's is because you have things like I-Drive and DCT's, has nothing to do with anything else. In older cars there are less systems relying on the factory electronics so it makes more sense.

        Either way the people working on this probably know is best.

        I don't know how I missed this but here is the plaque from SEMA with details on the car showing tuning by Weistec:

        Confirm with Weistec @Sticky. Aren't they a vendor here? They should be able to clear things up.

        Not sure when being questioned about the tuning Craig didn't just say Weistec and that would have been the end of it.

        It's a work in progress but I mean basically nobody has better control of the M156/M159 ecu for forced induction than Weistec.

        I'll have more info for you Friday.
