    Renntech pushes the M157 V8 TT in a 2012 CLS63 AMG to 627 wheel horsepower - Billet turbo and transmission upgrades coming

    Renntech moves the M157 bar yet again with a dyno run of 627 wheel horsepower on 93 octane setting a new M157 record. This comes less than a month after Renntech was the first (and only) tuner to break the 600 wheel horsepower mark on the M157. Renntech now hopes to clear the 700 wheel barrier and the next steps for the M157 are billet turbo upgrades and transmission upgrades. Renntech is aiming to have these ready by the end of the year.

    Of course it sounds like BS to you. You put more emphasis on crank dynos without timeslips to back them up then progressive improvements at the wheels on a dynojet with timeslips to match. It's amazing how your thought process works.

    The details of the mods are on the graph, try actually looking at it.

    RT revised calibrations are done in-house thus they can get improved power thru their own R&D. Also, if you want they can turn off ECO mode Stop/Start system for M278/M157 =)

    Dammit seeing something like this pisses me off, if I had a tuner who could tune the N63 and have our V8TT right next to that or above it. Someone who has a clue needs to start tuning N63's. Anyways awesome job Renntech and it makes me jealous + I saw the N63 Renntech tune numbers and why are they sooo low? Lower than Dinans :-(

    Hasn't Renntech started tuning BMW's. You should give them a call.

    I think Renntech is just getting started on that. Also, it's clear to see where their tuning focus currently is.

    Over 600 whp on a stock twin turbo v8, besides the intake and intercooler. This is still on stock downpipes correct, the cats would make a big difference in power too if removed. BEAST.

    I don't think it's stock downpipes. I assume the cats are in the downpipes or right there and the cats have been modified. Maybe there are two sets.

    The CLS63 has one set of primary cats, no secondary cats. Definitely should see better gains going full catless.

    There are 2 cats inside each housing, from what I understand. I can find the post on another site if you want to see it: came from an owner who opened the cat housing.

    Here's the quote: "you see it from outside as 1 primary cat, but inside there is 2 on each side.

    the second O2 sensor is in the middle and there it is empty ( i saw it by my own eyes )

    if anyone opened SLR exhuast, he will know what i am talikg about, because it is the same method, and i am sure it is less than 600 cell"

    Yes, you are correct. The M157 contains 2 ceramic monolith with a volume of 1.5L per side. Each catalytic front monolith has 600cpsi cel and the rear (after post-o2 planar sensor) 400cpsi cel.

    I wasn't that impressed until I saw the torque numbers. Don't get me wrong, the hp improvement is awesome. But +200lb-ft is siiiiiick. Baby got grunt.
