• AMS ALPHA 9 modified W212 E63 AMG M157 bi-turbo takes on a modified Corvette ZR1 in a 1/2 mile race

      Great video here courtesy of AMS Performance showing their Alpha 9 M157 V8 bi-turbo package in action. Keep in mind this is not with the 787 wheel horsepower max output AMS has shown so far but dialed back a bit as the package is still being tested (10.7@135 1/4 mile achieved) and tested in the real world against stout competition like this modified ZR1. What modifications are on the ZR1 are not listed in the video but one would assume mild bolt ons. Regardless, the ZR1 is some stout competition and the Alpha 9 E63 shows quite impressively.

      Video and comments from AMS below.


      We recently had the pleasure of attending the WannaGoFast 1/2 mile event in Chicago. The turnout was great and we use the opportunity to do some more fine tuning and testing of our ALPHA 9 turbochargers. While the full package has not been completed we still wanted to test the turbos themselves. As you will see they are doing quite well considering outside of the tune they are the only modifications to this car

      The video below is one of an earlier run where we were running less then full boost and certainly not the 787whp level we dynoed. We attempted to run that full power level but the ECU was limiting us. Late in the day Sunday our tuners found the ECU limitation and have since fixed the problem.

        To everyone reading.


        Above Portman says in post #12 how fast the CLK cars are and then I receive this pm from him.


        From what I read out of this:


        1. Apparently I am a loser
        2. I should kill myself
        3. My car is slow


        All of this because I said that the AMS people did not say their E class was faster than the CLK? This is a public forum and everyone is entitled to an opinion.

        You question whether LZH is under 40? I am questioning whether you are mentally stable as your pm to me is something a person with serious mental issues would say. Are you Eissa's brother as if so I will email him as he needs to have a talk with you.

        WOW, you had to call Weistec about me. ?????

        ahahahahah.
        Bragging ? Are you really an adult ?? I was simply stating that I have first hand knowledge of an M157 that has upgraded turbos - which is the topic here. Sorry if you can't grasp that and that you are speaking with "tune only" experience which does not apply here.
