    • AMS Alpha 7 tuned W212 E63 AMG 4Matic shows off its consistency and reliability with eleven 10 second passes

      The AMS Alpha 7 package for the 4Matic M157 vehicles certainly is impressing. AMS released their 4Matic M157 tuning options earlier this year with some impressive results. Well, it is later in the year now and the weather is much, much warmer. How would an AMS tuned E63 AMG 4Matic fare in July summer weather on the dragstrip? Pretty damn well considering eleven passes in one outing and being able to consistently break into the 10's.

      Very nice results for what is just a tune and exhaust modification in 2200 foot density altitude. 10.8 - 10.9 @ 127 - 128 mile per hour performance on every pass. Consistent, reliable, quick, and fast. Check out the video below.

        Must be nice to not have to kill the car launching it with slicks, and it just goes. Those things must be brutal on the street.

        Did it beat the 12c on a roll or 1/4 mile or standing 0 to 150 mph, 60 to 130 ?

        BTW what does this car do 60 to 130 mph

        Great results as usual from you guys A+

        Test and tune nights are pretty straight forward, you drive the car to the track, wait in line, make a few passes throughout the night and go home. On a hot, muggy July evening we took the shop 2014 Alpha 7 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG 4matic to our local track, Great Lakes Dragway to make some data acquisition runs before installing our new Alpha Boost Cooler system. Rain was predicted for the evening and track attendance reflected the forecast, there were very few cars running leaving the staging lanes wide open. Getting right to it Paul staged the E63 M157 BiTurbo and made a quick shakedown pass at 10.92. We checked the logs and continued to run the car making multiple 10 second passes. After making a few consistent passes most people would be satisfied and call it a night, but we had another idea, just how many 10 second passes could we run that night? The goal was set at 10 to test the consistency of our Alpha 5.5L BiTurbo tune. Pass after pass was made throughout the night and we exceeded our goal by making ELEVEN 10 second passes with a best of 10.87 @ 128.28mph, only two hundredths of a second off our current 4Matic record.

        Each of the 11 passes the Alpha powered AMG made was within .099 seconds and 1.32 mph of each other. In addition, the 0-60 times were all 2.86 seconds verified by the V-Box Sport. Talk about consistency!Overall we are very pleased with the results from the Alpha 7 5.5L BiTurbo package. It has proven it is capable of beating exotic cars like the McLaren MP4-12c and has performed flawlessly during all our testing. This package has been amazingly consistent and we look forward to going back to the track once the Alpha Boost Cooler system is installed and improving on our current best of 10.85 @ 129mph.

        It beat the McLaren in a half mile shootout, so I guess 1/4 mile, 0-150mph 60-130mph and a half mile Click here to enlarge

        the McLaren ran 153.8mph to our E63's 156.6mph on that run

        It was running unleaded race fuel. The turbochargers are already maxed out on the pump gas tune, and we do not alter boost on a race gas tune. The only thing you can do is add a little timing, which is good for about 15-20whp on the dyno.

        Will you be offering upgraded turbos for the 4Matic?

        Yep! We need to get a couple other modifications on the car and test it before we put the turbos on, but technically they are available right now

        But im still confuse how the white E63 4Matic for renntech ran a 11.180 @126 with only tune and mixed fuel and AMS ALPHA7 ran a 10.8 @ 129 mph and the car ran with a intercooler and downpipe+cats ans mixed fuel its a huge different modifies specially for the engine like the M157 its a big different for the stock exhaust and other with downpipe and cats + the intercooler which is not mentioned.

        I'm guessing Renntch's E63 with down pipe will trap more speed

        My mate's 12C goes 135 mph in the 10.3x range in 1/4 mile so the 12C you guys beat must have been a little down that day as I see almost all 12Cs going 130mph plus in sub 11.0s

        BTW drove the 12C Sat, a lot of bad issues, radio effed, NAV doesnt work, ticking in bay, noise from front dash, $297,000 car and it has major issues, but a family MERC E63 AMG with $12k of mods and you are purring along with an Alpha 9 package and zero issues

        Exactly. This should be well understood by now.
