    M157 heat soak problem? Weistec has the solution - Weistec Engineering M157 Twin Turbo AMG V8 cooling/intercooling system upgrade released - $1999.99

    The new batch of turbo motors from AMG make a lot of torque and those turbos combined with fairly large displacement produce quite a bit of heat. The factory cooling system features a water-air intercooler for this reason to keep temps down but the OEM Mercedes-Benz design has the intercooler system tied into engine coolant system. Not hard to see how this is not the most efficient setup possible and how the cooling system can become overwhelmed.

    Weistec improves the performance of the factory intercooler by separating it from the engine cooling system. The M157 cooling kit includes a dedicated performance heat exchanger, trunk mounted ice tank reservoir, and all the necessary fittings and lines.

    Essentially, this leaves the factory system now dedicated to just cooling the engine rather than the engine and intercooler. Also, the factory factory heat exchanger is positioned between the radiator and AC condenser meaning heat radiating from those elements will affect it. The Weistec unit is mounted where it can get cool air from the grille above the bumper beam.

    Another great performance product from Weistec Engineering for your AMG, get it here for $1999.99: http://www.weistec.com/m157cooling.html

    Key Features:

    • Separates Intercooler from Engine Coolant
    • High Performance Heat Exchanger
    • Optimal Heat Exchanger Placement
    • Weistec Trunk Ice Tank for Greatly Increased System Capacity
    • All Hardware, Lines, and Fittings Included

    They have the AMG platform figured out that's for sure. Considering the level of performance you gain from these mods I would say the price is quite fair.

    Weistec... the right mod at the good moment...

    No intercooler pump ? It was the first thing to change on previous generation FI AMG engines.

    The stock one is probably good enough

    You raise a good question on the pump.

    @Weistec ?

    Stock pumps have been improved since 2007 according to various sources.

    Anyway, a good Meziere/Johnson pump would probably greatly compliment that Weistec setup. A good
    pump is very important when there a rear tank.

    Hello guys thank you all for the compliments. It is very appreciated.

    The factory water pump and in tank pump is extremely powerful. With the water flowing we have a hard time opening the rear lid because water is flowing at such a high rate! It is actually cool to see how well it works. The factory system is pulse width modulated and the factory pump runs based on duty cycle percentage. Combined with our tune this modification becomes even better.

    We are sure our hot climate customers (Middle East for example) see considerable temperature decreases which in turn creates more power, consistently.

    Can you please post some picture of the installation?
    Thanks
