• Supercharged M156 versus turbo upgrade M157 - Weistec Stage III C63 Black Series takes on a Weistec turbo upgrade E63 AMG

      Here is the race many of you have been waiting for from the No Fly Zone event. A modified AMG M156 versus AMG M157 battle. Both cars are Weistec tuned with the C63 Black Series (camera car) having a Weistec Stage III package with the 3.0 liter blower at 11 psi putting down approximately ~650 wheel horsepower with a pump tune but running race gas. The W212 E63 AMG has the Weistec M157 turbo upgrade package which puts down roughly ~730 wheel horsepower on race gas.


      I was filming in the C63 Black Series and @LZH was driving the E63 AMG. I specifically made sure to record early to show the temp as well as what the staging looked like and how long it took to move through the line. For those who wish to just skip straight to the race, skip to the 4:00 minute mark.

      The C63 Black Series pulls very hard. It was able to run down the E63 AMG and pass despite a slight jump by the E. It's the faster car of the two despite the E having more power. The M156 seems to just have the stronger top end thanks to its curve and redline. Both cars are highly impressive.

      The video is in 1080p HD so maximize your screen and turn up your volume. Enjoy!

        the revs drop as normal with a downshift, but then the sound quickly changes two or 3 times, similar to a missed really fast MT shift. like the noise is hesitant in a near-missed shift.

        That is the way this car shifts, when I first purchased the car I thought there was a problem, I even posted a questiin regarding it on the AMG Private Lounge, appearently it dumps a ton of fuel just before upshift, the sound you hear is that fuel burning. It is hardly even evident in the video, you should hear it in real life.

        ah so it's not actually the revs changing as such just the overrun sounding a bit strange.. which i'm guessing is a really nice loud CRACK in person?
