    • Eurocharged releases Stage I M133 AMG 2.0 liter four-cylinder (A45, CLA45, GLA45) engine tune - +40 horsepower, $999.99

      The M133 tuning scene continues to heat up and BenzBoost vendor Eurocharged is now in the mix with their offering. Eurocharged has a plug and play unit that will work with the A45 AMG, CLA45 AMG, and likely the GLA45 AMG as well once it is officially on the streets as these models all share the same M133 four-cylinder motor. On a Dynojet in DIN correction output rises from the baseline of 359.44 to 401.82 horsepower at the crank.


      This correction factor is metric horsepower so the peak numbers would be slightly lower using the US standard of horsepower measurement. Once more the 45 AMG models are on the road more dynographs will come but take a look at the graph below which shows gains through the curve with a peak gain of 42.38 horsepower.

      This is early in the tuning game for the new AMG four-cylinder but the motor is already showing itself to be tune friendly. For more details check out the Eurocharged product page here: http://www.eurocharged.com/products/...ormance-detail

        A flash tool is a flash tool, doesn't say ANYTHING about the tune that is being flashed.
        Also even if OEMs like Bosch sell to different manufacturers, it's still a different OS and "tune" on each ECU.

        Anyway, my point is that this Box is not a Eurocharged development although it says "Eurocharged Performance Engine Software" in the advert / on the page.

        I bought this Box from a different firm also claiming it was "their own development" until it came out on another forum that they are not even able to change ANY setting in the firmware of the Box. And I personally don't like to be fooled.

        Did you receive an empty box? You aren't being fooled by anyone.

        Eurocharged isn't lying to you. Nobody selling this piggyback is lying to anyone. It works exactly as advertised and Eurocharged is distributing this through their channels in the USA. What problem do you have exactly?

        I suppose the US company that sold me my laptop is lying to me by not revealing who they get in China to manufacturer the motherboard right?

        You're making a big deal out of absolutely nothing and something that is commonplace. If you want a specific Eurocharged tune for your car wait until they offer it for the M133 motor. Until then, this is what is available and they aren't claiming otherwise.

        If this is what tuners have to deal with...

        All I want to say is, that this is a relabeled box (cheapest quality I have ever seen BTW) and I gave it back as another tuner sold one to me as their "own development" which was not the truth (box is from MTB Germany or whoever they bought it from). They couldn't even tell how much the boost was increased (no, you will not read the increased boost through OBD) and so far everyone selling this box is just posting the same results of the same dyno run Click here to enlarge

        I went for an independent dyno run and found only 25PS more… But wait. Look carefully at the posted dyno graph here. Doesn’t the stock car have 380PS according to the graph already?! Click here to enlarge

        But anyway, I see you will not get the point Click here to enlarge

        So, I give up... Click here to enlarge

        Cheers from Germany

        You're some kind of expert?

        Considering these are the first Dynojet results I've seen with this box that is not true.

        Also, not everyone is using the exact same box. Additionally, the results are low 12's with the piggyback alone: http://www.benzboost.com/content.php...n-the-1-4-mile

        Seems like it's working quite well.

        Because you haven't made one. OMG Eurocharged is selling a tune for a car that just came out that they have the legal rights to sell in the USA. OMG oh no what liars.

        Seriously, what is your point? All I see is a bunch of baseless whining. Please show me your receipt and photos of having the actual Eurocharged box that you claim is so cheap. Let's see if you're just blowing hot air with your 3 posts having just joined solely to put this product down in this thread and you're from Germany.

        Are you perhaps trying to sway opinion to a different product? Looks like it.

        You will see the same results on MTB's facebook page posted MONTHS ago (also from another reseller I forgot the name of) and there is also a dyno run somewhere clearly showing >370hp stock.

        I made my points clear and I NEVER said or wrote every tuner is selling the same box Click here to enlarge

        But I see, you just don't want to see my point. So I am gonna end THIS discussion from my side... Noone else is following it anyway as it seems Click here to enlarge

        You didn't get that from Eurocharged.

        So everyone is showing gains? Awesome. So what is your problem again? That Eurocharged is selling a product in the USA that works?

        This needed some love

        TTC6 - I think you said you could get a new C7 Vette for $50k... we have been in a few of these and with any sort of Z51 package they are closer to $60k min and the LT2s and 3s nearer $68-75k

        If Mercedes can attract a new (read cheaper, younger) USA crowd by using small engines and maintain their profit margins at the same time then it is a master stroke.... never sell your BRAND for less than it's worth and if clients will pay $50k then charge them at least that
