    • 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.

        Earl, I can't stress enough how childish this is. Secondly, I'm not going to do what you want, you aren't going to be able to use reverse psychology to get me to do what you want, it just isn't happening.

        I think it's time for everyone to move on and we can revisit the actual topic when there is more information to share. For now, I think we should drop this absurd exercise and focus more on the positive aspects of the holidays and pick this up after the New Year.

        Joe you had a negative bias on this thread from the beginning with your first post when you said you doubt they will make it.

        i also said let's bury the hatchet and move on. You were willing to do that but only after getting one last shot in.

        I said I doubted they would make SEMA with a completed kit. The car was there, the kit is still being tuned. I also stated I hope they complete it and wish them well. A Twin Turbo M159 is not simple. By no means do I think it can't be accomplished but I think it's realistic to not expect it to be done in 3 weeks and it was not.

        Hatchet is buried, ok?
